Cool new stuff from Apple

leave a comment »

As everyone knows, I’m a big fan of Apple, and the new (today) announcement looks extra cool—especially the partnership with Starbucks:

Owners of Apple‘s latest iPod will be able to purchase and download music from iTunes wirelessly, thanks to a new line of players the company introduced this afternoon.

The latest high-end digital music players will also feature touch sensitive screens and look much like the company’s recently-introduced line of iPhone smartphones. The new, Web-connected iPods will come with Apple’s Safari browser installed. 8GB is $299, $399 the price for the 16 gigabyte model.

Apple also announced a new partnership with Starbucks. If you like that Norah Jones song that’s playing as you wait for a cappuccino, you’ll be able to click a button on the new iPod and buy the song instantly.

Apple refreshed its entire iPod line this afternoon at a press event in San Francisco, ranging from the Nano, with new colors and built-in games, up to a $349 model 160 gigabytes of memory.

The new iPods shipped today, said Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs, and should be in stores by this weekend.

Analyst reaction to the Jobs presentation was enthusiastic. “The consensus is, they knocked it out of the park,” said Michael Gartenberg, an analyst at research firm Jupiter who attended the event.
