Mix: Ford, iTunes Germany, 1GB nano, Toyota, Flipsyde

Slate’s Seth Stevenson takes a look at the use of an iPod in Ford’s TV commercial for its Fusion sedan.

The Financial Times reports that the German iTunes Music Store is now the market-leading service in the country, selling over 15.5 million songs in 2005.

UBS Investment Research analyst Ben Reitzes is the latest to speculate that Apple will release a 1GB iPod nano.

Toyota has posted a sneak peek of its new Super Bowl commercial, entitled “Hybrid,” in iPod video format.

NBC and Apple are offering Flipsyde’s “Someday” music video featuring Winter olympic highlights for free on the iTunes Music Store.

It’s pretty cool how important the ipod is. I also want to agree on the 1 gig shuffle, but then either when that day comes or later they will come out with another to keep the “3” family.
If they don’t it will look like they are downsizing.

NO!  Just add a screen to the Shuffle.  I’m sure I’m in the minority here, but that’s what I would like to see happen.

“NO!  Just add a screen to the Shuffle.  I’m sure I’m in the minority here, but that’s what I would like to see happen.”

Uh, then Apple would have to change the name because the whole point of the Shuffle was that you had to shuffle through your songs.

Well, Nobody, you can still shuffle with a screen.  Just look at the nano and iPod video.  They have screens and shuffle right on the main menu.
