So not only has Steve Jobs gone and replaced his liver with a new one (thanks to a 20-something car crash victim) but he surprised the Apple faithful by turning up to the big Apple launch convention in San Francisco.
Looking remarkably well for some one who has also recovered from pancreatic cancer five years ago, Jobs announced details on the latest version of iTunes (version 9), and explained how ringtones will be available to purchase from the iTunes store with more than 30,000 different ringtones being made available.
Of the most interest was the updated Nano.
The most popular version of the ipod, the Nano now comes with video camera, mic and speaker as well as several new colours (now available in pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, silver and black), with prices for the 8GB model being $A199 and a 16GB model for $A249.
This new iPod nano features a larger 2.2-inch color display and polished aluminum and glass enclosure.
"iPod nano is the world's most popular music player with over 100 million sold," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "And now we've added a video camera to its incredibly thin design, without any additional cost to the user."
You can share videos with friends using its display and speaker, or sync with a computer and share them on YouTube, MobileMe, Facebook or via email.
An interesting feature is the built-in pedometer that will sync with the Nike Plus application.
Should be a great tool for all those people that you see using the nano while exercising as it counts your steps everywhere you go. You can set daily walking goals, and the iPod will keep records in this neat calendar view.
How much battery will this eat though we wonder? Apple claims the new iPod nano provides up to 24 hours of music playback or five hours of video playback on a single charge, so we'll have to try that out!
There's a built-in FM radio which you can "live pause" and iTunes Tagging, which means that when you sync the ipod up to your itunes you can download that song to your library - the catch is that this is only available in the US!
Norah Jones performed two songs: 2002’s “Come Away With Me” and an upbeat, poppy new one called “Young Blood,” which will appear on her upcoming album "The Fall."
