Today, when Mr.invited the media to an Apple announcement, it seemed like things were moving too fast in the Apple world – or maybe it was that time of year again when the company needed that extra boost. It was only when we got the live coverage from the Apple announcement in San Francisco did we realize that Jobs meant business. The most recent Apple announcement has unveiled upon the world a brand new social networking system that has been incorporated into the more recent iTunes edition. The social networking system will be called 'Ping' and will allow users to add friends to their iTunes Ping, thereby, knowing what is going on in their friends' world and what kind of music they are listening to.
This was, by far, not the most interesting bit of news revealed to the masses in today's Apple announcement as Jobs announced that Apple will be revealing the all new iPod touch to the masses sometime next week. Pre-orders can be made at any local Apple store. The new iPod touch is thinner than the previous one, has cameras on both sides so one can use online calling services like Skype and has a stronger battery, giving it a longer playback time. The new Touch is coming in three sizes, 8 GB which is for $229, 32 GB which is $299 and the 64 GB one which is for $399. The prices for the new iPod touch are not all that different from the previous model though the facilities provided by it are.
The Apple announcement still had more to tell the masses and one of the latest addition to the Apple network was the introduction of streaming to Apple TV. Jobs in the previous years has realized the unsuccessful sale of Apple TV and to remedy these lackluster sales of the app, he has announced that Apple TV will now allow users to stream television shows for just 99 cents a show and allow people to stream HD movies which will cost $4.99. Jobs told those present at the Apple announcement that Fox andhad joined the Apple TV network though others hadn't.
