Australian iPod users finally got the chance to plug into Apple's online music store iTunes, two and a half years after it opened in the United States.
The iTunes store allows music fans to download songs onto their iPods or other digital music players for 1.69 dollars (1.27 US dollars).

Albums cost about 16.99 dollars, significantly less than the retail price, and videos 3.39 dollars.

But the music of some of Australia's most famous artists will not be

Apple Computer could hardly have asked for better reviews for its first iPod digital music player four years ago.
"There's hardly anything not to like about the iPod," wrote the Houston Chronicle.

"IPod is fast, looks great," wrote The Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette.

Such praise didn't spill over to Motorola's just-released Rokr cell phone, the first mobile phone equipped with Apple's iTunes software.

"New Rokr's lack of choices not cool," wrote the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"Limits to iTunes

Delivering "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives" television show content to wireless and mobile devices such as Apple Computer's video iPod may be only the beginning for the Disney ABC Television Group.
The future growth for the division will come from delivering media content on mobile devices, said Albert Chang, executive vice president of digital media for the Disney ABC Television Group. He spoke Monday at the Yankee Group Mobile Entertainment Summit in San Diego.

Chang recently stepped into a newly

The surprise of the new Apple iPod is not the novelty of portable video. It's that, right out of the gate, such an ambitious feature works so seamlessly. This kind of performance usually comes after years of trial and error, consumer give-and-take, fevered debugging, and quality control.
It's just too bad you can enjoy it only for two hours before having to recharge.

The next-generation iPods have arrived with much-heralded video features. The devices are slimmer, smarter, and, in

Apple Computer Inc. faced a lawsuit that alleged the company knew its nano portable music player was defective but still decided to press on with the product's release last month.
The credit card-sized nano, which replaced the best-selling iPod mini and is smaller than the traditional iPod, met with rave reviews. But users quickly started grumbling on Internet message boards that the device's screen scratches too easily.

Consumers have filed a proposed class action lawsuit in San Jose, California

A class action lawsuit has been launched against Apple Computer claiming the company’s recently released diminutive iPod nano scratches too easily. The lawsuit, filed in US District Court in San Jose California, seeks to represent up to 125,000 iPod owners the law firm that launched the case said.

The suit claims that the iPod Nano is defectively designed, allowing the screen to quickly become scratched with normal use. The suit also claims that the excessive, rapid wear renders the device unusable.

iSuppli Corp.'s teardown analysis of Apple Computer Inc.’s new video-capable iPod reveals an important new component supplier for the unit: Broadcom Corp.
While Apple continues to rely on its mainstay component vendors for the new video iPod, including a possible problematic screen vendor, Broadcom is providing its new BCM2722 VideoCore Multimedia Processor to handle the video functionality for the system, according to iSuppli (El Segundo, Calif.).

The Broadcom chip and other integrated circuits account for 17 percent of the

Given the brouhaha surrounding Apple's latest player, one might assume its name is the Video iPod. Think again: It's simply an iPod, the fifth generation of the device since its introduction four years ago.
And that's probably the best way to think of it. Although the big story is its ability to play videos, it's really just an audio player (and a good one) that can do video, not a dedicated video player.

In its recent release of its new Power Mac G5 line, Apple Computer has shown that it will rely on the dual-core PowerPC processor for at least a few years longer.
Although the company has noted that it will start moving its computers to Intel's x86 chips in the next year, putting a PowerPC chip into a new line could be an indication that it will use IBM's PowerPC 970MP longer than some analysts had expected.

Scarcely a week after Apple Computer Inc. launched a new video-enabled iPod with much ado, iRiver has responded by announcing a video-equipped player dubbed the U10.
Like the iPod, the new device allows you to listen to music or view specially formatted videos on a small built-in screen.

However, the flash-based U10 only offers 1GB of storage and a 2.2-inch screen, which makes the device considerably more portable but somewhat tougher to read than the latest iPod. Read More...

Apple Computer executives have said that the company will not license out its OS for Intel-based PCs, but that has not stopped speculation that Apple will pursue that strategy to go after the Microsoft Windows empire.
If Apple does -- and it would not be the first time the company has voiced denials all the way up to a product launch or a new direction -- it could make for quite a battle in the OS world.

Apple's latest iPod, a video-enabled music player that serves up some of the season's hottest television shows without commercials, will likely prod advertisers to get serious about finding a foothold in portable media players, media buyers said.
Apple Computer Inc. last week unveiled the new model in its popular iPod lineup. The company reached a deal to sell downloads of top-rated ABC network shows such as "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" the day after broadcast for $1.99 per episode.
