New Apple Products Turns Wants into Needs

After hearing and seeing the live demo of what the new features of the new Apple iPod products, it will instill a thought in your mind that, "you need it!". All the models, from the iPod Shuffle to the iPod Touch has some really neat features! Quoting from our speaker earlier, "As if we haven't put enough features on the iPod."

The iPod Shuffle
Here is a short clip from the Press Release:

SAN FRANCISCO—September 9, 2009—Apple® today announced that iPod shuffle®, the world’s smallest music player and the first music player to talk to you, is now available starting at just PhP 3, 290 in five great colors. iPod shuffle’s intuitive controls are conveniently located on the headphone cord, letting you navigate and enjoy music without even looking. With the press of a button, you can play, pause, adjust volume and switch playlists, plus the VoiceOver feature lets iPod shuffle speak song titles, artists and playlist names. The iPod shuffle is available worldwide today in a new 2GB model for just Php 4,390 and a 4GB model for Php 5,490, and both models come in silver, black, pink, blue and green.

“iPod shuffle is the world’s smallest music player and now comes in five great colors starting at just $59,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “iPod shuffle is so small that you almost forget it’s there, yet remarkably, it holds up to 1,000 songs and talks to you.”

In my opinion, the new features cover-up the iPod Shuffles LCD-less problem. In fact, you don't even need to look at it now because this small thing here talks to you! At a very affodrable price starting at 3,290, this is going to be one popular gadget that many will surely receive this Christmas! Knock you Ninong's door for this!

The iPod Nano
After buying a pre-owned iPod mini and selling it afterwards, just this year too, I bought my 2nd iPod. iPod Nano. It was pre-owned but I got it in a brand new condition. All stickers and protectors still intact, box still with plastic and almost zero scratches at the chrome-back. Today, I saw the new Nano and you'd definitely think that Apple has come a very long way to innovate new products and integrate several technological features in their products.

A short clip from the PR.

SAN FRANCISCO—September 9, 2009—Apple® today introduced the new iPod nano®, adding a video camera, mic and speaker to the world’s most popular music player. Music lovers can now shoot video wherever they are, view it on their iPod nano and use their computers to easily transfer their videos to YouTube.
