Apple rumors and fakes

· listen

Yesterday I got my first iPod, the black nano. And you know the drill: it's your new gadget, and it's the best of the world. But today, while reading my daily blogroll, I founded two pieces that got me thinking:

  • AppleInsider shows a new Apple fillings for the iPod redesign. It seems Apple intends to abandon the Click-Whell interface, so my brand new iPod nano will soon be a museum piece.
  • A video showing what the author called the OSX Leopard Mobile running on a video iPod, with stylus and sensitive screen. My first reaction was to curse for choosing the iPod nano, but than I realized the video is fake: it's a video simulating the user interface, and you can notice that by watching it very carefully. Watch the video below.
  • Last, ThinkSecret says Apple will deliver a spreadsheet software (Charts? Numbers?) in iWorks'07, scheduled to launch on January 2007.

Imagine the possibilities: a camera attached to a frisbee, able to record 20 minutes of broadcast quality video, with no moving parts (capable of hard landing).
