Mix: Event video, Nacho Libre, Encyclopodia, Style.com

Inside Mac TV has released a video podcast of the highlights from Apple’s special media event on Tuesday, which brought the iPod Hi-Fi, new Mac minis and leather iPod cases.

An iPod-formatted trailer for “Nacho Libre” is available for download from the movie’s website. The upcoming film stars Jack Black and is directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite).

Encyclopodia is free software that puts Wikipedia on your iPod. “It has been successfully tested on a third-generation iPod and on an iPod mini, but it should also work on other iPod generations,” says the site.

Style.com has released several video podcasts of the designer runway shows in New York, Milan and Paris. Podcasts of Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and more are currently available on iTunes.

iPod formatted versions of all of Apple’s trailers are available on the right side of the trailer page.  Not sure how this one is newsworthy.

they are? i could never find iPod-formatted trailers in the trailers section. How do you access them? I still can’t find them.

As for Encyclopedia, what makes WIkipedia special is that it is constantly being edited, added to, and revised to make it more accurate and expansive. How would trhis work on an Ipod, seeing as how an iPod doesn’t have wireless internet? Plus, wouldn’t it take up all of the space on the iPod?

Actually, the whole English wikipedia takes up 700 mb, not much compared to the 20gb hard-drive.
As for updates, they say they update the files for the wikipedia every 6 months.
It is not as often, but you can still look up anything anywhere, I love it.

Will it also leave a copy and consume disk space on PC (just as iTunes that I do not like)?
