Coverflow on the iPod?

Gizmodo posted this video of an iPod enabled with Coverflow. Hopefully it will be here soon! That is soooo cool! They point out that it could be a fake, but I can hope can’t I?


Maybe iPhone After All?

If this article is indeed true, I may have to reconsider the iPhone! I mean with my current plan, that would be over $700 in free service!

From the article:
“Cramer said AT&T (T – news – Cramer’s Take) is one of the most interesting stories coming out of the tech period. In its call, the company made it very clear that it’s going to use Apple’s (AAPL – news – Cramer’s Take) iPhone to get customers from Verizon Wireless (VZ – news – Cramer’s Take) by giving away its service for a year and a half to those customers who buy the phone.”

I guess we’ll see in a few months!

and Finally, Dan brings us a story close to my heart from Musings of a Damaged Mind.


C|NET is reporting a massive rumor. Could it be true? Could Apple be looking to acquire Nintendo? This could be a very interesting development if it were to happen! I think that C|NET points out some very good reasonings in their article about why this might happen.

“Consider this: the Mac Mini currently retails for not much more than the forthcoming Sony PlayStation 3 will. The Mac Mini can play high-definition video, edit music and photographs, surf the Web, word process and edit video — things no console can currently do well, if at all. The Mini also runs Apple’s extremely robust OS X operating system. What if the Mini could also play Nintendo games? And not just play Nintendo games, but play Nintendo games specifically tailored to the strengths of the Mac Mini’s hardware? Would Apple have a viable console on its hands? And if so, could it penetrate the mainstream consumer market with Macintosh computers in a way that has constantly eluded it in the past?”

This will be a very interesting rumor to keep an eye on. Maybe it’s all hogwash, but who knows. Maybe with Nintendo’s strides in design lately, they might just make a perfect fit!
