Hey,

the apple special event was a real let down, no new ipod, no iphone and no video streaming box.

<b>What actually was announced:</b>

<b>rev on ipod nano</b>
<a href="http://images.apple.com/home/2006/images/ipodnanohero20060912.jpg"><img style="display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px;" src="http://images.apple.com/home/2006/images/ipodnanohero20060912.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></a>
the went back the to the ipod-mini style case( the way i like it), bumped the storage, dropped the price, made it smaller and put in some better batteries. the black one looks sweet.

<b>rev on ipod 5gen</b>
<a href="http://images.apple.com/ipod/images/indextopb20060912.jpg"><img style="display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px;" src="http://images.apple.com/ipod/images/indextopb20060912.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></a>
Not the video ipod we all wanted,
comes with longer battery, more hard disk space some new software. nothing earth shattering.
they have also dropped the price a little bit.

<b>rev on ipod shuffle </b>
<a href="http://images.apple.com/ipodshuffle/images/indextop20060912.jpg"><img style="display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px;" src="http://images.apple.com/ipodshuffle/images/indextop20060912.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></a>
the new shuffle is really cool looking and smaaaaallllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!, love it!!
kind of reminds me of the <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2005/11/20/steve-jobs-presents-the-ipod-invisa-on-snl/">Saturday night live video</a> with steve jobs.

<b>new version of iTunes and iTms</b>
<a href="http://images.apple.com/itunes/overview/images/overview_hero2006912.jpg"><img style="display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px;" src="http://images.apple.com/itunes/overview/images/overview_hero2006912.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></a>

Well you can't expect them to announce something big every week ;)

Mac Pro --> iMac --> iPod --> next? Oh yeah, MacBook Pro :P

I really like the new itunes. It's got less gloss, and the new views are nice. It even downloaded all the album art for me.

I like how they did the 80GB and even dropped the price. $50 Cheaper and added 20GB. Not a bad deal. I am going to trade my current 30GB in at work and buy the 80GB. $50 more dollars and I get 50GB more. HEHE Not a bad deal there. Would make a nice little external HDD as well.

The new iTunes I do like. As for the artwork I get my own through iTunesCatalog. I believe I was reading to get Artwork through iTunes you have to have an account setup and all and I am not registering my credit card through it for Artwork. The new views are nice. And it even scrolls smooth through them unlike WMP10 did with its view similar to it.
