Tech WWWorld–iPod Touch, iTunes and Apple

Alright. Apple has launched the new iPod touch that comes with facetime, retina display, HD video recording and importantly, 40 hours battery life for audio playback (details). The best way to describe the new iPod touch is that it’s an iPhone without a phone!

Apple iPod Touch Price

  • 8GB $229
  • 32GB $299
  • 64GB $399

iTunes

iTunes’ latest update, version 10 is out (download link)  and notable feature being Ping, the social network for music (Apple’s first ever foray into social networking). I just downloaded  and apart from icon revamps,the new version is super fast, as compared to 9.2.1 (first impressions).

Detailed review of the social network (follow/follower play) later.

Apple’s Latest Stats

  • More than 50% buyers are first timers with a Mac
  • 230,000 iOS activations daily
  • 200 apps downloaded every second

Surprising that when Apple holds a press release/conference, every other company holds on to their announcements as they all know that media/bloggers will be eating the Apple pie.
