Justin.tv app upgrades

Best Buy is offering a trade-in program that provides people with instant credit for older iPods, while Justin.tv has released an update to its mobile software that adds live video streaming.


Best Buy has launched a new trade-in program, offering people instant credit in exchange for older iPod models. Those interested should check the company's website for an estimate of their iPod's value, along with information on any exclusions that might apply. To receive an actual evaluation of a device, people must bring a player to a Geek Squad counter at a US Best Buy store. After the condition of an iPod is checked, an appropriate gift card should be handed out.

Justin.tv mobile app gains live streaming

Justin.tv has released a major update to its free video streaming app. The title was previously limited to viewing streams, but can now broadcast over a Wi-Fi or 3G connection. The option is restricted to the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, and also requires iOS 4 or better. Some other features of the app include search, two-way chats with viewers and Twitter and Facebook integration. On an iPhone 4, users can exploit twin cameras and the LED flash.

    what?

    Justin.tv is "official"? I always thought it was a semi-secret and that it was highly illegal!

    $57 ???

    I looked at the Best Buy trade in value for a 3rd gen 8GB iPod Touch in good condition. The website said that a $57 gift card would be given for it.

    eBay seems to be the obvious solution.

    What a crock

    My 80 GB iPod Video with fully functional and long lasting battery, in the best condition they have listed has "No Value" That leads me to believe that most of the ones they have listed have no value.

    Re: $57

    If Best Buy were going to be using your iPod, they probably would go for a higher price. But since they have to turn around a sell them, or scrap it for parts, or do whatever it is they do with them, you're not going to get as good a price as perhaps to someone else.

    It's like selling your call yourself or trading it in to the dealer or CarMax.
