Apple iPhone may be released as soon as January  

The Apple rumour mill has let the wireless iPod topic drop for a bit in order concentrate on the anticipated iPhone mobile.

According to a report by Prudential Equity Group analyst Jesse Tortora, Apple will launch not just one, but two mobile phones a soon as January. One will be a slim mobile based on the iPod, while the other will be a smartphone; one will also include Wi-Fi.


Some 5G iPods shipping with Windows virus  

From the "Seriously. WTF" department, Apple has posted a notice on its website warning users that a "small number" of fifth-generation iPods are leaving the factory with a Windows virus—RavMonE.exe—on the hard drives. We'll let the release speak for itself:

We recently discovered that a small number - less than 1% - of the Video iPods available for purchase after September 12, 2006 left our contract manufacturer carrying the Windows RavMonE.exe virus. This known virus affects only Windows computers, and up to date anti-virus software which is included with most Windows computers should detect and remove it. So far we have seen less than 25 reports concerning this problem.

iPod Helps Special-Needs Students Make the Grade  

Letts, IA — On test days, Louisa-Muscatine third-grader Samantha used to have a pretty tough time. A Special Education student, she needed the services of an onsite paraprofessional to read the questions aloud to her, in an entirely different classroom. Now Samantha can grab an iPod, put on her headphones, scroll through the menu to find her test, and get to work. By listening to the test questions as she sees them on the iPod screen and on her paper, Samantha and several of the school’s other students with special needs are beginning to work more independently. At the same time they’ve increased their self-esteem, and have found a way to join the mainstream of education.

Gear4 unveils BlueEye for iPod  

Gear4 today unveiled the BluEye, a device that attaches to the dock connector found on most iPods and synchronizes key calling features of Bluetooth-equipped cellular phones with Apple's music player.

The gadget allows users to pause music during calls and displays caller ID information through the iPod, but also adds the ability to dial the most recent number through the iPod itself -- a feature useful to owners who miss an important call while the BluEye is connected.

Gear4's device also serves as an alternative to Apple's Radio Remote, offering both an FM tuner with 15 presets and basic music controls for pausing as well as skipping tracks, according to Electronista. The company plans to ship the BluEye in early November for £50.

Apple's Patent App Possible Sign of iPods to Come  

The multi-touch sensor device described in a recently published U.S. patent application filed by Apple includes sensor areas over different parts of a display. The touch-sensitive interface described in the application looks appropriate for a new iPod model that would do away with the Click Wheel in favor of an on-screen interface or an Apple phone with a secondary display on the backside.

Hundreds of first-generation iPod shuffle owners are crying out to Apple for resolution after upgrading to iTunes 7 and trying to update their iPods. Many of these users report that updating the iPod renders it unusable with an "Unknown Error (1418)," effectively corrupting the iPods with no way to restore them.
