An interesting story in The Australian newspaper’s IT section by long time Apple watcher David Frith, on video podcasting and rumours of developments at Apple.
‘Video-pod: fact or phantom?’
THE personal computing world has been abuzz over the past week with claims Apple Computer is planning to follow up its phenomenally successful iPod music player with a “video-pod” portable device.
Like many Apple rumours, it sounds unlikely at first: chief executive Steve Jobs has previously downplayed speculation along these lines, saying he can’t see much of a market for the concept.
Mobile music is one thing, mobile video quite another.
Maybe by the time I get around to buying an iPod they’ll have built in a video capability so I get a twofer.
