Wednesday’s It’s Only Rock & Roll event saw the return of Steve Jobs to the stage, a new version of iTunes with a boatload of features, more-colorful iPod shuffles, faster and higher capacity iPod touches, a video camera-equipped iPod nano, and no Beatles music.

In one of our punchier podcast episodes, I discuss these issues and others with editorial director Jason Snell and senior editors Jonathan Seff and Dan Frakes.

Show Notes

Throughout the podcast we discuss what was announced at the event. Among them:

I had a chance to get my hands on an iPod nano immediately after Apple’s presentation. For far more information on everything iPod, visit our iPod topics page.


Jason makes an impassioned plea for our very own $2 App Gems app. We threatened to put it in the Show Notes and, by gum, we’ve made good on that threat.
