The other tech conference

So Apple has MacWorld while I'm here at CES. I checked out the announcements. The iPhone looks neat, but it isn't going to replace my Treo. Now, when are they going to release an iPod designed like that? They say the iPhone is a 'widescreen iPod' - but I don't want all the phone crap, give me a REAL widescreen iPod with the same interface and a 60/80GB drive!

AppleTV is just what I said it was when it was announced, and people started going on about being a 'TiVo killer'. It is an Apple Media Center Extender, plain and simple. That doesn't mean it isn't good for what it is, but it is not a DVR, or anything like it. I don't see getting one. TiVo will have more broadband content offerings this year, and I already have those. And I'll probably be getting a SlingCatcher, which will also have options for broadband content - no PC/Mac needed.

I was hoping for a real widescreen iPod. Guess I'll keep waiting.
