Hmm...looks like many people who just bought video iPod will be pissed off
Never saw it coming.
Lol, didnt you make that?
It was on your site when someone asked for some examples of your work...
Fingerprints & smears constantly on the screen from the "digital wheel" ftl.
if true I'm getting one
Not if they use the same screen finish as they do on the ACDs. I can't put a fingerprint on my 20" if I tried.
That's a hard anti-glare coating. Plus, you rub some oily fingers on it and it's going to look like the LCD of an old digital-camera after a while. Gunky.
that's awesome, but you don't get any credit it for it unless you work for apple
I've owned plenty of touch screen electronics, even designed and made a few. I would gladly exchange a couple of smudges for twice the screen realestate.
Honestly, I can care less if they actually made it because I just want to actually own one. I'm not a big fan of the white and black flat front plastic designs.
I see 2 problems with that kind of design.
1 battery life will probably be down from the high of 20 hours to just 8-10 hours from all that screen realestate
2 scratching - i hope it isn't made from the same materials as the other ipods are. if you see mine, its completely battle harden
Or one of the OTers might be working for Apple and stole a design from him... or maybe Jonathan Ive is on OT?
Good luck with that.
second one is more realistic, but the demo of the first is damn cool.
The biggest screen you can get with the iPod's size AND wide aspect video is damn cool.
