I always just end up pissed off. They always introduce something which will make whatever I have right now look crappy and overpriced.

The only apple product I own is an iPod, and I'm happy with it.  I'm just interested in their designs.

The most commmon rumor is that they will release a 1gb flash player with *no screen* called the "iPod Shuffle".

 Apple have been buying flash memory, most likely for a micro ipod.
 
 The big announcement is the phone deal with motorola. It lloks like motorola phones will run a version of itunes. Alhough mac geeks are still hoping the whole phone and interface will be of apple design......

I've heard 2 things, a flash memory iPod (prev mentioned) and a sub$500 Mac computer sold without monitor.  Neither of which will replace my current iPod and Powerbook, both of which keep my credit card debt alive.

There will also be a wireless remote control unit for your iPod.

I did hear the new 3G phones were incredible.  Video and streaming music delivered at DSL speeds to your cell phone (in America, finally!).  Likely to be a part of the Motorola plan for Sprint and Verizon customers.

Yep, surprised me....

 I thought the main thing about the ipod was its navigation via the screen. I guess the only thing the shuffle has going for it is its integration with itunes.
