Why Apple’s “iTV” Airport AV will be a killer app to drive adoption of fast 802.11n wireless, why n is needed, how it will benefit all users (not just Apple’s), and what users will have to pay (it’s less than you think).

Apple’s new “enhanced fifth-generation” iPod (with video) comes with some pretty interesting new features and I want to take a look at which of them you can expect to work on the previous iPods.
The new iPod e5g comes with several software-based features including searching (pictured) via virtual keyboard, smart scrolling which allows you to scroll through your library at lightning speed, games and a brightness control.
The problem I have is that half of these new software features are available on previous iPods

The Loveliest iPod yet

If you’ve been living in a (broadband-less) cave for the past couple of days you may not have heard that Apple has released a slew of iPod updates (along with a new version of iTunes).
All three designs are attractive, but by far the most gorgeous is the completely redesigned iPod Shuffle. Clad in brushed aluminium, this triumph of miniaturisation weighs in at just over half an ounce. Its dimensions are about as small as you can get while retaining a play button and a headphone socket! It has plenty of room (and battery) to play over 10 hours of music, and the £55 price tag includes a tiny docking station.
It is a superb example of what Apple does so well. I’m still trying to think of a good reason for getting one!
