Apple music event

Apple will reportedly hold a on September 7th, where the company is expected to introduce new music-related products. Previous online reports pointed to a September 7th release for Motorola's iTunes-based phone. It is unclear if the Apple-hosted event will be used to launch the iTunes phone, new Apple-branded products, or a combination thereof. "1000 songs in your pocket changed everything. Here we go again," the invites, issued today, read.

    iPod Video!

    This will truly be the next step in the evolution of iPod. iTunes is already setup with hundreds of music they just have to make them available to buy as well. $2 a video? PLUS, the added option of being able to store and play your own Quicktime movies on your iPod, which must be coming since iPhoto now lets you store quicktime movies along with your stil shots. Seems like eveything is in place for this to be released. Just wondering about screen size. Wish we could shrink the wheel for more screen space.

    Ooh, ooh! I know! I know

    Two words: Implantable iPod.

    Several more words: Forget hard drive. Forget flash. Forget headphones, while you're at it. This puppy is installed into your brain, and uses brain cells for storage.

    This will bring new meaning to "I can't get this song out of my head," to which the standard reply will now be, "Did you try re-syncing with iTunes?" (Note: re-syncing may also be necessary after late night cram sessions, head injuries, and beer binges. College students are expected to require frequent re-syncing).

    Scary! I like Apple, but to give them direct access to my wetware... I think I'll let y'all go first. :-D

    The idea of spending 2 bucks (or anything over 10 cents) to "buy" a music video seems totally preposterous to me. But supposedly, the phone companies have grossed close to 3 BILLION bucks selling ring tones... so maybe this isn't as far fetched as it seems to me. After all, this is the Shopping Generation!
