OK, looking at the review of the iPod photo, I see the SVHS port and its ADB style connector

I suspect Apple is going to allow ADB keyboards and mice to plug into the iPod photo, and with the photo's colour screen and ability to display a rainbow apple logo, we shall soon see the obvious switch back to beige.

And of course, keyboard+mouse means PDA. Obviously.

don't believe it? that's fair. Make up a rumour of your own that's better, then :).

I rather the apple logo of today, then the rainbow logo.

I dont think they could ever go back the rainbow days.

I saw steve holding a beige iPod at the WWDC when i was there. I pointed my camera and he scurried away before i could get a shot of it.

This is as good a shot as i could get of it...

I've just gone through much personal risk to bring you this new shot from inside Apple offices.

It appears support for iPods on older macs is seriously close to full release, and is expected in Tiger (10.4). To facilitate this, Apple will be offering alternative docks for various macintoshes.

Left, we have the SerialDock, for the original Mac 128 and 512k models. Connecting through a cable that converts their dsub serial sockets to the newer style mini DIN serial.

On the right for the Mac Plus and upwards is the SCSIDock , which allows an iPod to be used on - yes you guessed it - SCSI.

Pricing is estimated to be $1599US for the SCSIDock, and $2249US for the SerialDock.

Belkin have just released their BatteryBack for the iPod 3G.

The BatteryBack is an extended battery housing for the iPod which contains (among other things) a larger size battery, UPS, and car battery charger. In a simple operation the BatteryBack clips on the rear of your original 3G iPod and replaces it with a slightly reshaped Belkin back to house the new electrical system. Belkin claims the BatteryBack can provide an iPod with up to 2500 hours of continuous music play, run an electrical camping stove up to 4 3-course meals, and turn over a 1970s V8.

The BatteryBack is expected to cost $199US plus whatever price new pants with bigger pockets to store them in.

DUAL HEAD IPOD!

ok. this ipod micro (saaaay 256MB flash, or something tiny like that) either looks like a really tiny cute iMac, or one of the freebie Carefree purse packs from a few years ago...

I actually found compelling evidence that Jobs and Wozniak workd on the ipod concept together far earlier than we first suspected. Possibly as early as the late 70's or early 80's. I was checking out Blakes 7 (BBC) and I was able to capture these screen shots. A couple of scenes clearly show both the advertising concept and shortly after, the prototype ipod. After a bit of digging I was able to find the following specifications.

A serial version (with a blazing fast 2400 bps serial interface. Code name: "ipodB3ta") designed to integrate with the powerful 6502 based Apple platform. Utilising the latest prototype 400 KB 3.5" floppy diskette drive you can encode your 12 favourite singles as glorious 8 kbps samples. Utilising the latest fast RAM located in a discrete belt pouch you have a 2 second buffer to ensure unbroken playback. The revolutionary sealed lead-acid gell battery (also contained in a discrete belt pouch near the RAM pack) alows you to play your full playlist at least once!

No, surely that is a trackpad and single-button combined.

I actually heard that the iPod was going to go bondi blue, not beige. And I know because I have an inside contact in Apple.

Sneak photo of the new leet iPod for snobs who don't like LCDs.
