RUMOR: Apple’s new iPod nano photo leaked, iTunes 8 imminent?

Has Kevin Rose done it again? (Sometimes he gets it close, sometimes he doesn’t.)

Rose, founder and site architect of Digg, and a co-founder at Revision3 and Pownce,’ is claiming to be spilling the beans about Apple’s next-gen iPod nano (see image to left, click for larger image), significant iPod price cuts, Mac OS X, iTunes 8.8, and more, including Mac OS X 10.5.6 which may add official support for Blu-ray drives and playback.

According to Rose, a revamp of the entire iPod line, iPhone, iPod touch software 2.1, new iPod pricing, iTunes 8.0, and more are all coming within 2-3 weeks.

Daniel Eran Dilger writes for RoughlyDrafted, “Kevin Rose has been trying his hand at making broad sweeping generalizations about the next generation of iPods, but sorry, no digg. Most of his predictions are not even original, and those that are are so vague that they’re really just worthless. Here’s what you can really expect.”

“Rose likes to suggest what’s next from Apple, but his guesses only approach reality when they’re based on leaks that occur days prior to an announcement. His flat out guesswork tends to be yet far further removed from reality, indicating that he has no special inside track on things at Apple, nor much of an imagination tempered by realistic appraisal,” Dilger writes.

  1. this is BS. I got the real info from my buddy in sacto. Apple is coming out with the ipod touch nano. The days of the scroll wheels are over. Anybody who believes that pic is a fool

  2. Actually I liked the tall skinny factor. My first gen nano is still working fine and I like the feel of it in my hand. It is easy to use too. A bigger screen would be nice but I do not see the lack of Apples connector on the bottom. How would this unit work in any of the standard Apple third party units???

    Just a thought.


  3. “I vote for Photoshop, and not a very good rendition.”

    That’s what everyone always says. Moon landings: Photoshop. JFK assassination: Photoshop. Bigfoot:Photoshop.

  4. What’s with all the constant complaining about unwanted pop-ups here? I’ve never seen ONE . . . ever! Is Webkit/Safari THAT far ahead of other browsers when it comes to blocking these little irritants?

  5. Look at the source and you question it’s authenticity? You betcha!

    Photoshop has become a generic term, like PC or kleenex or Q-tip. (Funny how my 3 examples are all disposable items.) Hey, Photoshop has even reached verb status.
