7/15/2015: Apple introduced an updated iPod line today. On the good side, lots of power bringing it up to iPhone 6 specs with a new 64bit A8 processor, access to Metal for gamers, M8 Motion Processor for fitness benefits and a 8 megapixel camera with stabilization. Overall 6x speed inprovements 10x Graphics compared to predecessor.Starting at $199 for 16gig five colors Space gray, blue, gold, pink, and silver as well as a Product Red option.
Under missed opportunities: As my readers know, I do feel vindicated, barely, although Apple did finally update its iPod line supporting my prediction, they have not chosen to increased its screen size (hoping for 7″) to better facilitate gaming nor have they increased its audio quality along the lines of Neil Young’s Pono player. Both moves I believed would have reinvigorated the line, ignited the Apple Music (Beats) brand and disrupted the hand held gaming market.
Oh Well 😎
