Yesterday Apple Computer released a snazzy new product. It looks like this:
Very clean and pretty, but what is it?
- A boom box, like the one I listened to nonstop from 1982 through 1985 (until I finally invested in a multi-component stereo system with one of those new-fangled CD players — sweet!)
- Some kind of iToaster: In the picture it looks like you insert your iPod in the top to download new music or videos or brainwaves or whatever they’re selling on the iTunes store now, and when the download is finished your iPod pops out the top and you’re ready to dance! (or watch or think, etc.)
It seems to include that little pack of gum in front of it. I’m guessing that’s something to chew and enjoy while you’re waiting for your iPod to pop back out.
If you’d like to examine it more closely and yet virtually, here’s a rotating video to play with.
