The “main entree” on the menu for today’s Apple event, the fourth generation iPod touch, was largely what rumors have led us to expect, and expectations were high.
As in years past, the iPod touch has followed in the footprint of the iPhone. The latest iPod touch incorporates Apple’s Retina Display, the Apple A4 CPU, and three-axis Gyroscope. The iPod touch also has two cameras, one in the front and one in the back.
The front camera is for FaceTime, which will work both with other iPod touches and iPhones. The back camera does not appear to have a Flash — market segmentation, anyone? The back camera will take HD video and allow editing on the device. Oddly, no mention was made of still photography.
Looking for a simple way to push websites from your desktop browser to your iPhone? If you're using Google Chrome (or Chromium), you might want to take a look at the Prowl extension.
You'll need to sign up on the official Prowl website first and generate an API key for yourself. Once you've got that, grab the extension and add your key in its options screen. After that, simply click the cat icon in your browser actions area to send a push notification to your iPhone of iPod touch via the Prowl app ($2.99 in the App Store). Prowl is a nice alternative for users who don't need to push items frequently -- if you do, you're probably better off with an app/extension combination like ReadItLater.
If you're not familiar with Prowl, you might be asking why it costs $2.99. It's actually a very powerful little app and can redirect notifications from a ton of other sources -- including Adium, Transmission, Google Voice, Twitter, Drupal, WordPress, and many others -- so it's well worth the price if you like being kept in-the-know while you're out.
