Update at 1:40 ET: Jobs is now showing off a new iPod with a touch-sensitive screen called the Touch. It looks much like an iPhone. It has the same size screen as an iPod -- a 3 1/2 inch video display -- but is just 8 mm thick. Jobs calls it "one of the seven wonders of the world." It's WiFi-enabled, comes with the Safari Web browser, and can play YouTube video. Bottom line: It's an iPhone without the phone.
Update at 1:57 ET: The new iPod Touch comes in two models: 8 GB for $299 and 16 GB for $399. The Touch ships later this month.
Update at 2:09 ET: Apple just announced a Starbucks partnership. At the chain's stores, a Starbucks logo appears on iPhones and the new iPod Touch, showing what song is playing in the store and letting you buy the song. You'll also be able to find the last 10 songs that played in the store. Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz has Jobs in making that announcement.
Update at 2:16 PM: Apple just announced that it dropped the price of the 8 GB iPhone by a whopping $200, to $399 from $599. And it's eliminating the 4 GB version all together.
This is flippin sweet! I waaant the new iPod *drool* It's gonna have a touch scree AND free internet? Freaking sweet man...and for the same price as the one I have too? I tell ya, modern technology.....just can't keep up with it.
But then...I dunno. The new one's memory sucks. Sure it LOOKS good, but if it won't hold all my shit, what is the point?
Damn you Apple.
