Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2011

Could this be Apple’s next iPod nano? Taiwan’s Apple.pro website thinks so and since they also recently got their hands on a purported next-gen iPod nano chassis that seems to match the device pictured above, it looks likely.

The obvious change is the built-in camera, which is apparently 1.3 megapixels. Take this with the usual grain of salt for now, as we don’t have any confirmation, but it is looking like this is the real deal. We will know for sure before long.

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on June 7th, 2010

It’s been some time since we’ve used 8-Tracks. Here’s something that can hopefully make them cool again. This modder has made a Beach Boys deck connect to his iPod nano, complete with a headphone socket and USB port on the front for portability and charging.
