Also, rumours of an Apple event on the 5th Sept are circulating, this time for the new iPod. Expect the new iPod to be running OS X (like the iPhone) and maybe up to a 160gb hard disk.
Yes indeed, a blinged out Shuffle, made in gold, platinum and diamonds.
You either love it or hate it, but the iPhone ringtone is certainly distinctive.
Can't wait for the iPhone.

Named Moviestar, it supports the playback of video encoded using the H.264 standard, which allows for greater compression of video files than previous standards while maintaining quality. Adobe already supports H.264 encoding in products such as Premiere Pro and the After Effects video editing software. Moviestar also includes High-Efficiency AAC support, an improved audio compression technology.
Currently in beta format. The finished version will be ready by the end of the year.
Its been a hectic quarter for Apple.
The iPhone launched in the states, selling in the region of 700,000 in the opening weekend. Speculation of who the UK provider is going to be is doing the rounds on the internet. Remember that until Apple do a press release, everything is just speculation. ( I do hope Vodafone get it )
The Mac Pro tower range got speed bumped and now the flagship model has 8 cores. Now thats processing power !
Last week saw the release of the new iMac range. Super slim, glass scratch resistant gloss screens, speed increases. These machines are great !
And the new super sleek keyboard.
And there is more to come too.
