Jon Fortt writes about Apple’s recently announced Power Mac G5, iSight and upcoming Panther OS X. In the article, Fortt speculates using iSight with iPod for recording video.

“Slap the iSight onto a 15-gigabyte iPod and all of a sudden you’ve got a hard-drive-based camcorder that can hold hours of Quicktime video, plus play music.

Jobs didn’t have Apple build the iSight just to make a Web cam that mounts to the top of a monitor. If monitor mounting were his big stroke of creative genius, he could have simply asked a third-party developer to make monitor mounts. Jobs is thinking bigger than that, and Apple is staking out strategic territory. It’s focusing on audio, video and voice communication, which translates into MP3 players, camcorders and phones. If I were a betting man, I’d wager that an Apple-branded camcorder and an Apple-branded phone aren’t too far off.”
