Hidden details from Steve Jobs’ Apple iPhone keynote

For those who haven’t yet seen this, ACTV near the end of February posted a video on YouTube that looks at “four things about the iPhone that you probably overlooked from Steve Job’s MacWorld keynote. They include what the calendar application looks like, how you’ll view traffic in Google Maps, another way to scroll through long lists and how ringtones may ultimately work.”

  1. Re: ringtones.

    I bet that there will be an option when buying tracks from the iTunes store to also download a version of the song to be used as a ringtone. That way, the ringtone would already start at an interesting part of the song. Or, Apple could alternatively offer a ringtone creation tool built into iTunes to select the portion of the song you want to use as a ringtone, and then save it as such. The ringtones tab would then allow you to set your ringtone preferences as far as assigning different tones to different callers and such. I don’t see Apple offering seperate ringtone purchases in addition to regular song purchases…and raping everyone on the price. That’s just one of the many ways the carriers screw us consumers (actually not me, since I’ve never bought one). ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

    Buying the song and then either offering the free corresponding ringtone or the ability to create one from the track seems much more Apple.

    That would be the coolest, and that’s certainly what I would want, so I’m hoping Apple does this. I will be very disappointed if they perpetuate the over-priced download model.

  3. HAH! I’m not buying a 30 second Ringtone for more than a 99 cent full-track from the itunes music store…chances are, the ringtone would be the 30-sec clipped sample that iTunes already has for the preview of the full track. LAME if they try to charge more for these.
