Apple -- New iPod Lineup


Apple introduced it's new lineup of iPods yesterday. The whole line has been updated with new UI, storage updates, and hardware changes. However the Price Changes introduced for the US aren't quite as nice for Canada even though our Dollar is near equal with the US Dollar now. Tch. When will you learn Apple? Head past the jump to see what's changed in the iPod lineup.
