Shows over, some will be happy, others will have had higher expectations*.

The biggest expectations were for the iPod touch.  Those who hoped for a camera were probably unhappy at the results today.  The iPod touch got a faster, double memory for the price sized 64GB and 32GB version and the 8GB version got dropped to $199 from $229.  No camera or anything else it appears.  This lends credence to the HardMac reports of delays.  We’re not telling you what to do, but you might want to wait a few months on any iPod Touch purchases.

The iPod Shuffle got colors and some headphones compatibility.

The Classic got a bump in size to 160GB.  No camera.

The Nano got the most improvements with that camera that was expected.  Video, stills, a mic, and some new apps like Voicenotes and Pedometer. Also an FM radio (at last)  Very nice additions for Nano customers.

iTunes 9 got an overhaul which was nice and expected.  iTunes LP (Cocktail) we’re looking forward to playing with, though not with the Beatles.  We’re downloading iTunes now.  It is here.

iPhone OS 3.1 hit with Genius lists and other minor improvements.  DO NOT UPGRADE if you enjoy free tethering.

A lot of sales figures and game demos also went by.  We’re excited for EA’s Sporting games (Madden!).

Although this wasn’t a spectacular show, it was good to see Steve Jobs back after all. 

Everyone cheered, we think if the internet was wired for sound we’d have heard cheering from all over the place.
