Apple’s new products

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

With all the rumors floating around, Apple released two major new updates:
one is the long-waited video iPod, which attracts all the attention from the media.

new iPod

the other one is an iMac, with a remote control and build-in iSight, making it essentially a Media Center.


According to a CNN news report, last quarter Apple sold 6.5 million iPods! Geez, they are doing pretty well!

Hopefully, with all the money they make from iPod, Apple would bring out an even better operation system. I like the 10.4 Tiger, but I am kind of reluctant to upgrade from Panther, just because of all the software incompatibility. Anyway, i am still waiting to see more from Apple :)

UPDATE on 10-21-2005:
Wow! Apple released a new line of PowerMac: Two dual-core G5 chips = QUAD processors! This is way cool. But I guess many people would wait for the Intel Macs. With hyperthreading, two dual-core Intel chips would be equal to 8 processors (rumor here)!
