    Review: iPod nano (7th generation) combines the best of its predecessors

    Posted October 20, 2012 - 7:42 am

    Along with a new iPhone and a new iPod touch, September's Apple event brought with it a new iPod nano, the first in two years. (2011 saw a notable software update for the 2010 model, but no new hardware.) As has been the case with so many iPod nano models over the years, the iPod nano (7th generation) is a dramatic re-imagining of Apple's most-popular traditional iPod. But unlike the sixth-generation iPod nano, this one is mostly an improvement over its predecessor. In fact, for most uses, it just may be the best nano yet.

    Because so many people were perfectly wrong and ridiculously worked up about the timing of the iPhone 5, ridiculously lucrative sales and profits just weren't enough.
  • iPod nano hacked, jailbreak to follow?

    The touch screen iPod nano doesn't run Apple's iOS, but that hasn't prevented users from trying (and succeeding) in hacking it. So far, the initial hack doesn't offer much, but it could just be the first of many.

    iPod Nano 5th Generation (16GB) Audio Player

    Posted September 24, 2009 - 9:11 am

    The fifth-gen iPod Nano is almost impossibly slim, but somehow the wizards at Apple managed to pack in a video camera. Though you'll find a few other new features in the fifth-generation Nano, the video camera is the marquee addition. Considering how much space your home-video clips might take up, it's unfortunate that Apple didn't boost the Nano's storage capacity this generation.

    You've seen Apple roll out the new iPod nano and new iPod touch. Heck, you've heard what we have to say on both the new models. But perhaps you're wondering what really makes these suckers tick.
  • Apple adds video camera to iPod nano

    Apple announced a new iPod nano with a built-in camera on Wednesday at the "Rock and Roll" event. Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the device by citing the popularity of pocket flash-based video cameras like those from Flip and Kodak. "This market's really exploding," said Jobs, "and we want to get in on this."

    But recent glitches in the new iTunes 8 bring an unwelcome blast from the past to Microsoft's latest operating system. Connect an iPhone or iPod, and some Vista PCs either crash with the dreaded Blue Screen of Death or spontaneously restart.
  • Revisiting iPod mounting issues

    Posted October 16, 2008 - 3:27 pm

    A colleague called this morning to pick my brain about his mother's 2G iPod nano. The gist of that pick was that this particular generation of iPod nano refused to mount on her Mac--every other generation of iPod thrown at the machine worked perfectly well. And that nano mounted on the colleague's computer as it should. He reinstalled iTunes on his monther's computer with no positive results. What to do? My suggestions went like this:

    Remember back when Apple rumors were Mac rumors? Good times!

  • "Funnest" is an awfully strong word for a couple of iPods

    Pretty iPod nanos, spiffy iPod Touches -- so why doesn't it perk me up? At least there are Genius Playlists to console me -- if only I could download the update.
