Apple’s slow but steady takeover of mobile computing continues

  • 5.3M iPods were sold by Apple during their fourth fiscal quarter of 2012, according to the company’s most recent earnings call.
  • 14M iPads were sold during the same period of time, though both the iPod and iPad product lines undersold analysts’ expectations. Yes, apparently, only selling 20 million devices is disappointing to some folks. 
  • 26.9M iPhones were also sold during the company’s fourth quarter, underperforming yet again; however, we suspect the imminent release of the iPhone 5 may have played a significant role in dwindling numbers. source

Camera Upgrades: The iPod Touch will also feature an upgraded camera, though not as powerful as the cameras found inside the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5. Fortunately, the new 5-megapixel iSight camera will include the same 5-element lens and crystal sapphire lens cover built into the new iPhone 5. Also, like the iPhone 5, the new iPod Touch’s FaceTime HD camera will capture 720p video. (Photo via Engadget) source

Magnets and an iPod Nano are all it takes to make a tiny music player part of your body: It’s not for everyone, and we’re not just talking about the video above. Dave Hurban implanted magnets in his skin to hold the iPod in place, much like a wristwatch. But why, WHY would someone ever do this to themselves? “I just thought it would be cool,” Hurban said. Unfortunately for Hurban, it’ll be harder for him to upgrade his Nano the next time around, especially if Apple changes its style — like, you know, it does nearly every single year. source
