Pricey Rentals and Super Thin Jobs / MacBook Air top MacWorld Keynote

Intel Core 2 Duo Reduex for AppleSteve Jobs has been through this a few times, and 2007 would be a tough act to follow – for nearly anyone after the stellar performance of the iPhone and iPod-laden world we live in, but a somewhat tired, weak and seemingly frail leader of the Mac World had four (4) big announcements for the world.

Time Machine was a feature built into Apple’s last version of the O/S and now they have extended it’s functionality by integrating either a 500GB or 1TB hard drive into an 802.11n wireless router. Pretty basic stuff – DLink and others already have similar products and it was US Robotics intention to do so years ago when 802.11b (11Mbps) was announced – and the price of $299 and $499 respectively may be a little bit pricey for some NAS. For Mac enthusiasts – it could be $10,000. That was number one.

Music Deals may be worth Nothing

CDT LogoIf you have decided to take the leap of actually purchasing your music online like most people do these days, then you probably decided you should look around a little before comitting to 99¢ per song – am I right so far? Well, some of these online sites which provide you with access to millions of songs and a dirt-cheap price – may be illegal. Completely.

For some time the RIAA has been making noise about those who dare to download music for free. Thanks to the Fifth Amendment, I have no comment on that type of activity – but I will say this – it’s been years since I downloaded music online. The sad thing is, my music collection doesn’t seem out of date to me – I was actually downloading even older music – and I think I actually have all I need. Well, now there is a group, called the Center for Democracy and Technology, who have published a list of websites which do NOT have licensing agreements with the music companies – yet offer music for a fee.

Cash only customers out of luck with iPhone

Apple Inc. Maker of the iPhone, iPod, and iPod TouchLike those debit card commercials that depict a utopian marketplace where only the use of cash can cause catastrophe, Apple inc. has recently begun frowning on cash purchases of the iPhone.

Apple has also limited the number of iPhones any single customer can purchase, down to two from the original 5. It is widely believed that Apple wants to limit the number of people who are buying the phone in order to unlock it (in other words, use on any carrier but that of AT&T) and to prevent resellers.

Is the World Ready for a New iPod?

Apple Inc. has announced via a cryptic flyer that there will be...an announcement.Apple Inc. is hosting an event on Wednesday September 5 that many think will be the stage for a new version of the company’s iconic iPod Portable Music Player line.

The Internet is all atwitter with speculation, started by the circulation of vague Apple event invitations bearing an image of a silhouetted iPod-wearing figure dancing above the words “The beat goes on.”

Apple’s iPod has become the most popular MP3 audio player in the world since its debut in 2001. Its most recent addition to the iPod line is the matchbook-size Shuffle introduced a year ago.

The full-size iPod has not been updated since 2005, when a video playing “fifth-generation” was introduced in October. Obsessives who watch Apple Inc.’s ever move believe the company is poised to reveal iPhone-inspired improvements (to the iPod) such as enhanced wireless capabilities and a large-screen iPod for better video viewing.

The timing of Apple’s event announcement could be to shore up its image in the wake of fall-outs with Hollywood and music studios that want more money for content sold on the iTunes online music store–a service that is paired exclusively for iPod and iPhone users.

I remember my first Sony Walkman.

Who doesn’t? I had that thing with me everywhere I went until years later it started eating tapes instead of playing them. Sony had a great product there—and now they’ve got another. That’s because they’re bringing back the Walkman name in Sony Ericsson’s new Walkman Phones.
