New iPod Launched

The new iPod line announced by CEO Steve Jobs at a press event in San Francisco, which Apple calls “Let’s Rock.” Among other things, Jobs cut the price on the year-old iPod Touch and unveiled a new Nano video player.

The new Nano is thinner than previous models and slightly curved. Among other features, the display screen changes orientation from horizontal to vertical depending on how the user holds the device. An 8-gigabyte model costs $150, the same price as the original 1-gigabyte model from two years ago.

The Nano also features a new service called Genius, which recommends songs or movies based on a user’s interests and creates playlists based on songs the user has chosen. The device will also shuffle the playlist if a user shakes it.

Jobs also unveiled cheaper models of its Touch music player, a touchscreen-only device. An 8-gigabyte version now costs $229, down from $299. A 32-gigabyte model costs $399, down from $499
