Steve: Changing the World, One Music Player at a Time

Hurrah, new browser-sporting wi-fi iPods, and they look just like everybody said they would.

Steve Jobs previewed an ad for the new toy in his keynote yesterday, which you can find if you dodge all the 'Amazing!'s, the bad jokes, and his overextended attempt to make a ringtone out of Aretha Franklin's Respect.

The ad is short and follows the same see-what-my-finger-can-do aesthetic as the iPhone ads. Looking forward to seeing the "official" version.

Also, Apple announced a partnership with Starbucks where you can log onto iTunes for free on a wi-fi-ready Apple unit, and even - get this - buy a song in a Starbucks while it's playing. Cashing in on the impulse has never been easier.

Okay. So if the new iPod is all sexed-up with a browser and wi-fi, does this mean we can stop worrying about what mobile carriers will and won't let us do?

And more importantly (ask yourself out loud), will Steve Jobs change the world?

I don't know about you people, I'm fed up with the iBullshit iHype from iSteve. This introduction is nothing but an iConjob. Just shelled out $599 for this phone and now lost $200? Fuck Steve "greedy" Jobs, there is absolutely no excuse for this slap in the face. There must be a remedy or a backlash.

When you get your remedy from Apple, maybe I'll get my backlash against Google.

No offense, REX, but what did you think was going to happen? Of course the early adopters were going to pay a hefty premium. That's the price you pay for being supercool for a couple months. Then they knock it down to a price the rabble can afford. It seems to me this happpens with pretty much every new piece of consumer electronics, and it's why a lot of people were waiting before buying the iPhone.

I think this is some kind of fraud. You don't get marked down $200 in less than 30 days without some refund. Mine is 20 days! I don't have the guts to admit it (to my wife) she doesn't come here... I think the iPhone is not all that it is cracked up to be. sigh!!! Anyone remember Newton?
