so basically, the iPod Touch is keeping pace with the iPhone. Although it's one chip behind, with the A5 chip.
new iPod Touch has seven times the graphic performance, which is great for game players.
Time for a game demo: "Clumsy Ninja".
I really like the new nano. I was not a fan of the "clip" design. Bluetooth is a great add.
"Clumsy ninja is self-aware and fully interactive." Uh, really?
poor little clumsy ninja is getting picked up and thrown around. "But he does like being tickled."
The more you play with Clumsy Ninja, the better he learns. Wonder if he slashes fruit.
"clumsy ninja is based on many years of research into natural motion ... would previously have required a supercomputer, now it's on an iPod Touch."
Clumsy ninja will be out this holiday season.
40 hours of music playback, 8 hours of video on the new iPod Touch battery.
iSight camera is going to be built into the Touch for the first time. It's 5 megapixel, with autofocus, flash and Sapphire lens.
Time for some more camera demonstrations, which of course were not taken by professionals. No sir.
iPod Touch gets the cool Panorama feature too. And the shared photo streams.
what's that circle on the back of the iPod touch, at the bottom? Push it and it pops up. You can attach a loop ...
and hey presto, you can attach a camera strap to the back of the Touch. Pretty neat.
So this could be a great digital camera for kids
the Touch gets 1080p video camera, too. And you can do your video editing on it, not to mention FaceTime.
Basically, the new iPod touch is the iPhone 5 -- without the phone, a slightly slower chip, and a slightly smaller megapixel camera.
AND Siri. On the iPod Touch.
And colors -- black, white, blue, yellow, red.
And each one comes with its own color coordinated camera loop.
The Shuffle gets a color update to match the Nano.
Siri on the touch. That's big.
"Apple is one of the biggest providers of speakers in the world ... they're in everything we sell."
But we also include speakers in the white earbuds, 600 million of which have been shipped.
"we've spent 3 years designing an entirely new headphone ... EarPods."
EarPods = headphones with little speakers on the side, basically. We're getting a video demo of them, with Jony Ive narration.
new EarPods look like little periscopes.
"We scanned hundreds of ears, looking for a commonality ..." - Jony Ive
"EarPods are designed to intentionally direct sound, right into the ear ..."
sound ports built into the stem, too.
"and of course, we want to make them available as soon as possible ... today."
get your EarPods at the Apple Store now! Apparently.
