Apple unveils new iPods, cuts Apple TV price

Thursday, September 2, 2010
Apple iPod touch 8 GB (2nd Generation--with iPhone OS 3.1 Software Installed) [NEWEST MODEL]Apple unveiled a refreshed line of iPods on Wednesday and slashed the price of the Apple TV box that streams television shows and movies over the Web to high-definition TV sets.
Apple chief executive Steve Jobs, speaking at an event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, said the second-generation of the Apple TV device would cost 99 dollars, down from 229 dollars.
Apple released the first version of its digital media receiver that routes TV show and movies from computers to HD TVs in 2007 but it never really caught on with the public.

Jobs said Apple TV owners will be able to rent HD movies for 4.99 dollars and television shows from the Fox and ABC networks for 99 cents. US users can also stream content from movie rental service Netflix, he said.
Jobs said the new version of Apple TV would be available in about four weeks.
Jobs, dressed in his trademark long-sleeved black shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes, said he was rolling out the "strongest new lineup of iPods we've ever had.
"It's the biggest change in the iPod lineup ever," he said.
The new iPod Touch allows for video calling. It has front- and rear-facing cameras which allow a user to hold video chats with iPhone or other iPod Touch owners using Wi-Fi and an Apple program called "FaceTime."



Jobs also showed off a new iPod Shuffle for 49 dollars and a touchscreen version of the middle-range iPod Nano starting at 149 dollars.
The new iPod Touch costs 229 dollars for the eight-gigabyte model, 299 dollars for the 32GB model and 399 dollars for the 64GB version.
