Apple's Continuous Innovations

Apple has introduced a whole lot of additions for their fourth generation iPod Nano, as well as improvements to the second generation iPod Touch and some new features incorporated across the new iPod range as well as iTunes.

The new Nano will be the Apple's thinnest iPod to date and features a sleek new design with a curved aluminium and glass enclosure, available in nine colours. Along with a refined interface and high resolution display, the device also has a built-in detector, which automatically flips the image on screen to fit the way the device is held, and automatically goes into Shuffle mode when lightly shaken -- dubbed "Shake to Shuffle". Also included is the Apple's "Genius" technology, which automatically creates playlists from songs in your music library that go together, as well as automatically going into 'Cover Flow' with just a turn of the wrist.

iTunes version 8 includes the Genius feature and for the first time offers television programmes in high definition for sale on the iTunes Store.
