New iPods ‘Live On Stage’

At 6pm people poured into the Fashion Island Apple Store in Newport Beach, CA for the debut of new iPods at Apple’s Live On Stage event. DJ Hawkeye provided the atmosphere “spinning” two iPods as a saxophonist accompanied him. There were favorable reactions to the iPods as one person exclaimed, “Look how small they are!” And another said, “Those are cool!” We bought our 15GB iPod and received a free black t-shirt with purchase. They were selling them for $10 without purchase. The t-shirt depicted a white outlined iPod on the front and “Live On Stage 5.2.03” on the back. Many were also entering for a chance to win a $1800 JBL sound system. The same system that was being used by the DJ. Upon existing the event, free posters were being handed out. It was also nice seeing iLoungers in the flesh. We’ve posted photos from the event.

Great, I just wish we had Apple Stores over here in “Old Europe”.
Two things however:
- Seems I have a different idea of what “pouring into” means. The queue outside doesn’t look too impressive ;)-~
- As much as I love the iPod, it’s definitely not meant to be used for DJ’ing. It just looks pathetic and the guy also doesn’t look too comfortable dealing with the rather small interface. Well, still nothing beats vinyl + turntables for DJ’ing. Perfect concept, just as perfect as the iPod is for mobile listening.
