Steve Jobs’ presentation to the press
on Tuesday lasted a little more than an hour. But in that time, the Apple CEO completely overhauled the company’s iPod offerings, introduced a major update to iTunes, launched a movie download business, and—in a major departure from Apple’s playbook—previewed a product that won’t be available for at least four more months.
Not bad for an hour’s work.
In this special edition of the Macworld Podcast, we present some audio highlights from Jobs’ appearance, including the latest on each iPod model, enhanced iPod games, the arrival of full-length movies at the iTunes store, an appearance by Disney CEO Bob Iger, and a sneak peak at Apple’s iTV.
Regular podcast host Christopher Breen will be back Wednesday with a follow-up podcast featuring more on these latest announcements. If you’ve got a question for Chris, send him an
e-mail, or post it in the forum thread below.
