    Not only is Apple's next iPod Nano said to bring the camera back, but it's also going to run new software for games. Not just Klondike and Vortex, last seen in the fifth-gen model, I'm hoping.

    The addition of new games was brought to light by a patent application Apple filed with the US Patent and trademark Office, called "Environment Sensitive Display Tags." Inside the patent application, Apple has listed the addition of new sensors (a motion sensor, temperature gauge and microphone), alongside features like a screensaver, 1.3MP camera and yes, some sort of new software for running games on. Could the App Store be coming to the iPad Nano? Time will tell, with Apple traditionally announcing new iPods in September.[/p]

    If only it was BIGGER. If it was the size of... my mouse, I'd totally think about it.

    Haha, so true.
    It's impossible to have the newest one.

    Why bother with that when I have a 5G?
    Those newer models can't even play videos.

    A small improvement, but the whole thing is still a downgrade.

    Particularly Apple. They outdate their own tech on a regular basis and expect you to buy another one immediately because it's 0.000025% lighter.

    I feel sorry for people that buy Apple products.

    I've seen a lot of people buying some form of iCrap then a few weeks later "NEW iPOD TOUCH, OUT TOMORROW".

    Actually, there's one blatant exception to this: The Classic. Hasn't had an update since like 2008. And it probably won't get one, for good or for bad.

    What? I'm just a guy who prefers having a huge MP3 player rather than a shite multimedia device with bad storage.

    Real news would be a new Classic, with a bigger drive.

    On the flip side, I've lost count of the number of people who buy Android smart phones or computers only to find out that they could have gotten better hardware for cheaper literally a month later. At least with Apple, you know when they will release a refresh because they do it with such rigorous regularity.

    Stupid new fangled iPods with cameras. They add no useful function whatsoever and are inferior to most smartphone cameras. I can't bring them to my Army camp because of those damn cameras

    That's true with most electronics, unfortunately. Computers, mobile phones, mp3 players, cameras, TVs, monitors, everything. Whatever you buy, there's an "new and improved" version out in a few months.

    I bet you hear that a lot.

    The current Nano is just retarded. Just get an iTouch/iPhone!
