I learned some interesting things, like the GS4 has a monster screen.
Cassette to iPod Converter: Wait, it looks like a walkman and it converts audio tape cassettes into MP3 files and stores them directly on your iPhone? AMAZING! You knew you were saving all those angsty mixtapes for a reason. ($80)
We’re still a ways off from living our dream iPod nano watch scenarios, but here’s a small step in the right direction. As the story goes, on a flight home James Whelton booted up an iPod nano with a modified SprinBoard plist file that “removed” an app from the screens and replaced it with a blank space. What does this mean? Not much at this point, but it could provide a pathway to further hacking, jailbreaking, and yes, writing and installing those dream apps that make this a great wrist accessory. Video proof after the break.
A look inside the latest iPod touch hardware reveals the device has space to fit an iPod nano-style video camera, and also sports a wireless chip that supports 802.11n.

Single-stream doesn't get the full power of N, but it boosts speed enough that — along with space-time block encoding, a feature coming soon to Wi-Fi access points with two or more radios — the iPod touch could be an effective networked media server, for streaming and transfer, possibly through the new iTunes Home Sharing feature."

In 2001, the same year the Game Boy Advance was introduced, Apple brought the iPod to us (and not to universal enthusiasm, either). When I was doing some Google searching last night on Apple model numbers, I found something quite strange.
Who knew that there were first-generation iPods still for sale on store.apple.com! This is the very first iPod model, introduced in 2001. I don’t know how they ended up there, or why they’re selling them, but they’re shipping “within 24 hours” >and are available for $129.00….
