The New iPods

Well, in my recent post on the subject, I mentioned that 80 GB might not be enough. And now there is a 160 GB hard drive in the iPod Classic. Quite amazing to have so much storage in such a small package.

The new iPod Touch forms an interesting hybrid between an iPod sensu stricto and the iPhone. If Apple were to make a really simple to use cell phone, that would be a good combination.

The price reduction on the iPhone has sent shock waves through the user community as well as the stock market analysts. The latter will probably think this through and realize that unit sales can only increase to cover the cut in profit per unit. People who buy new technology should always be prepared for sticker shock. And Apple's retrospective offers to owners seem to be very reasonable.
