The Crunk That's Getting Me All Hot
Posted by Sam at 3:12 PM | tags:

Holy shmoly. That was a massive, jam-packed hour of new and updated Apple crunk. I'm not going to go over all of it here... there are others who can do a much more thorough job than I can. What I will mention, however, is the particular new crunk that's getting me all hot.

First up: New, big-ass capacity, 6th (5.5?) generation iPod. 80 gigs. $350. Spotlight-esque search feature. Games. And... GAPLESS AUDIO PLAYBACK! Dude. Really. Did it honestly take six generations of iPod technology to get the tracks to play without a gap between them? Well regardless, the iPod is gapless now... just like my teeth.

Next up: iTunes 7. It's got a movie store. Come on now. We all saw that coming. But interestingly, this newest iteration of iTunes comes equipped with an album cover finder. That's nice. I've been waiting for something like this for a while. It'll be interesting to see how it works and how long it'll take to get cover art for my 59.55 gig iTunes library, where not a single album has cover art attached. Once that's all set, I'll be stoked to try out the Cover Flow feature.

Finally: No iPhone. And once again, I told you so.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
