Foo Fighters Help Launch New Apple Lineup
The Foo Fighters were on hand to help Apple launch its new range of iPods with an exclusive unplugged performance last night. Apple also revealed the new iPhone 5 and a fully-revised version of iTunes at the event. "One of the incredible things about being here is that you're meeting people who are shaping our future," said Dave Grohl between songs. "And just like Little Richard, Tom Petty, Jimmy Page, these are just people who took it upon themselves to change our future, but you meet them and they're people! And this one's dedicated to all those people." The iPhone 5 now features a 4-inch screen and blazingly-fast new A6 processor. Some observers believe the larger screen is simply a means to catch up with competing products from Samsung, but a stunning demo of "Real Racing" from EA proved the phone is pretty much on-par with proper gaming consoles. For years iTunes has been getting messy with the addition of new types of media and device support, but has finally cleared away the clutter for a simple and better-performing interface. The full range of iPods has been updated, notably the iPod Touch and Nano. Each now includes a new dock connector, so if you own a speaker dock and plan to get a new iPod or iPhone, you'll need a special dock converter to use it. Watch the Foo Fighters play at the Apple event in this video:
What do you think of the new range of iOS devices? Will you buy one? If not, why? Let us know in the comments.
