MacExpo UK: iPod launched

Apple Computer Inc. is launching iPod, its digital-music player, today at MacExpo 2001 at Islington's Business Design Centre.

The company, which has booked the largest stand at the show, will also be showcasing its revised iBook and PowerBook G4 range. It's expected to focus on its solutions for U.K. education, and to put Mac OS X 10.1.1 through its paces. Also on display will be Apple's iMacs and Power Mac G4s with demonstrations of iDVD 2, iTunes 2 and its complete range of software and hardware solutions.

The 6.5-ounce iPod can hold 1,000 songs and has a battery life of ten hours. It links up to the Mac using FireWire and can upload songs from a Mac 30 times faster than other USB MP3 players on the market. It integrates with iTunes 2, and can store playlists, track and artist information taken from the application.

The iPod is a perfect example of the company's concentration on repositioning its products as central to the digital-hub vision espoused by Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs at San Francisco's Macworld Expo in January, 2001.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
