First, a thank you and apology to my old friend Jason Dunn for my bungling the audio recording during our podcast last week.
This week Jon and I are taking a break from our Windows CE 25th anniversary reminiscing to look back at a truly world changing product anniversary
The Apple iPod was
- first announced on October 23, 2001. Became available on Nov. 10, 2001
- Jon bought an iPhone 13 Pro because of a great trade-in deal with Verizon. Camera does seem markedly better, which is saying something because the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera was no slouch!

Todd Ogasawara, Jay Stone, and Email Reyes discuss some of their favorite mobile games in MobileViews Podcast 64. They start off with the recently released Plants vs. Zombies 2. This long awaited game was released using a freemium model. It moves on to Candy Crush, Angry Birds Star Wars, and the surprisingly expensive but apparently satisfying retro games brought from the PC and console gaming world to the iPad.
Thirty-four apps for my iPhone or iPad were updated in the past week. Here’s a summary of some of the updates that interested me.
I received a Christmas (or perhaps, more accurately, Festivus) gift of sorts from Apple this afternoon.. My recalled first generation 4GB iPod nano was replaced by a silver colored sixth generation 8GB iPod nano (the one with a touch screen).
Am I a satisfied customer? Yep!
Happy Festivus Day!
I have not received my first generation recalled iPod nano replacement. However, MacRumors reports that others have and are reporting that some have received current generation sixth generation nano devices.
Apple Indeed Replacing Recalled iPod Nano Units with Current-Generation Models
I’ll report if I received a first or sixth generation nano after my replacement unit is delivered.
