In an apparent attempt to unify its iPod product names, Apple has tweaked the name of its iPod Photo to iPod photo (lower case “p”). The product’s name now matches that of the iPod mini. Apple’s Web site appears to have been quietly made over to reflect the name change. According to readers, Apple resellers and members of the Apple Consultants Network received confirmation of the change from the company earlier today.

Actually, a quick check of my iPod photo box shows that that it already uses the lower case ‘photo’.

It’s kind of refreshing to see that even a company like Apple can’t always get everything right. If you go to the Apple site now, you’ll still find a bunch of “iPod Photo” next to “iPod photo”.
