New iPods, better iPods
Yesterday I tried to get access to the Apple Store to build a fantastic Mac Pro and compare it with a friend to prove that a self assembled mid tower PC is ALWAYS inferior to a Mac Pro, regardless of the price.
I did not reach the site. A "Post-It" told me that they were working on some upgrade... I suddenly thought about new products...
And I was right...
Today there are news in the iPod family. From the less to the most important:
