New iPods Have WiFi! Somebody Give Me $399!


iPod Touch Well, there was no big announcement of The Beatles coming to iTunes, but this is pretty cool: Steve Jobs just announced a new line of iPods that are basically iPhones without the phone complication. The “iPod Touch” will have the same full-screen touch interface as the iPhone, and will be able to connect to iTunes via WiFi. This may seem a little silly, but I have to admit whenever I travel and see a record store in an airport, I think, “why can’t I just walk in there and aim my iPod at a thingy and grab a new song?” Well, now, basically, I can—if I just spend $299 for an 8GB model or $399 for a 16GB.
