New iPod lineup

Apple today announced the introduction of a new iPod, iPod nano and iPod shuffle as well as the latest version of the world's most popular music jukebox and online music and video store, iTunes 7.

The most significant changes are to the new iPod shuffle, which is a complete redesign of the original unit. The new shuffle is now the world's smallest digital music player, weighing just 14g and featuring a built-in pocket clip. The shuffle now only comes in a 1GB capacity (holding up to 240 songs) and features up to 12 hours of battery life.

Also introduced was the new range of iPod nanos, featuring all-new coloured aluminum designs. The new nano looks similar to the previous iPod mini, albeit much smaller. Apple claims it has up to 24 hours of battery life and a 40% brighter screen than its predecessor. There are 2GB, 4GB and 8GB models available in silver, pink, green, blue and black.

Apple has also slightly upgraded the 5G video iPod, featuring a 60% brighter screen for video playback and full colour games such as Tetris and Mini Golf. The new iPod is available in either 30GB or 80GB capacities.

In addition to the hardware, Apple released the latest version of iTunes, version 7. The new software features album and cover flow views, the ability to download games for playback on your iPod as well as an all new integration with the iPod.

We got an exclusive look at the new products, including iTunes 7, at an Apple media briefing this morning and we were very impressed, particularly with the miniscule shuffle, which will surely turn some heads.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
