…Apple is colorblind?

iPod Nano

Apple went iPod crazy on Tuesday, and released an updated Nano, a new Touch, a larger (and cheaper) Classic, and Shuffles in all new (for them) colors.

The tech blogs have all managed to beat this news into the ground already, so I’m not going to dive into the details, but what I am going to wonder aloud about is this: Why did it take Apple so long to release an iPod in a rainbow of colors? (Or Nano-Chromatic in Apple speak.)

While Apple was busy doling out doses of iPod five flavors at a time, ColorWare managed to make an entire business out of taking your iPod and adding color to it, and they even charge an extra fee to do so.

It’s obvious that the demand for colors has always existed, as evidenced by Apple’s decision to release their products in various (limited) colors along the way, and the mere existence of ColorWave, so why hasn’t Apple jumped on this bandwagon before?

The world may never know…

…The iPod Shuffle loves to touch?

iPod Touch Shuffle SaleIf you’ve had your eye on a new iPod Touch, then it’s time to pull the trigger, because Amazon is offering up a free 1GB Shuffle with the purchase of a 32GB Touch.

(It’s also a good time to note that the Shuffle is now just $49, with a $69 2GB version in the works. I used a Shuffle a lot for running, and it was the perfect player until I decided to get the Nike+ kit (which only works with the iPod Nano), so if you’re looking for a no hassle, easy to use MP3 player, then the Shuffle definitely gets my recommendation.)

…Your iPod packaging can be useful?

Bird-Electron EZ17-B iPod Recycling Speaker

The Bird-Electron EZ17-B iPod Recycling Speaker has got to be one of the coolest iPod accessories that I’ve seen in quite some time.

By utilizing the packaging from the 1st & 2nd Gen. iPod Nano or the 2nd & 3rd Gen. iPod Shuffle, you can turn what would normally become garbage into a usable accessory.

The speaker panel simply snaps in place, and then connects to your iPod without the need for an extra power source.

When you’re done, just tuck the wire and the iPod behind the speaker panel, and away you go.

Nifty!

…Sony and Apple share?

Sony And Apple

Why waste a good idea?

Apparently, Sony (which recently ripped off the bunnies for their latest Bravia ad) felt that Apple’s iPod arrangement was going to be too tough to beat, so they just replaced the Nanos with their own DSC-T2 cameras for their latest press photos.

Don’t feel too bad for Apple though, as they’ve been known to do the same thing from time to time as well.

I guess they should both feel flattered; right?

…It’s TGI Friday: iPhone fakes?

iPhone Shuffle

Following the first TGI Friday, user ihave7stars is now the proud new owner of a $10 iTunes gift card, and had some really nice things to say about DYH:

    You have a really cool site and I’m bookmarking it with the rest of my daily must-reads. It’s nice to get all my important news on one page without the other stuff I don’t care about.

This week, the TGI Friday is a great Photoshop of the new iPhone Shuffle, and a challenge to the DYH readers out there with some great Photoshoping skills of their own. Can you top the iPhone Shuffle? Now that we know what the real iPhone is going to look like, what do you think Apple should have done? What do you think Apple still has in store? iPhone Nano? iPhone Rotary? If I get some good ones, I’ll come up with a prize to give away for the best, so let the ideas run wild and let’s see what you’ve got.
