Apple Unveils New iPod Pica
CUPERTINO, California - In a stunning move today that is sure to send shockwaves through the digital music industry, Apple Computer today announced the new "iPod Pica", the world's smallest digital music device carrying the slogan, "100,000 Songs At Your Fingertips."
According to Steve Jobs, the new device can hold over 100,000 songs, features a color display (and included viewing scope), Photo cabalilities, and the ultimate in portability. "We wanted our users to be able to take their music with them anywhere, without worrying about anything taking up too much space. The iPod itself, the iPod mini, and even the iPod shuffle are insanely great items, but let's be frank, they take up valuable space that could be used for other things, like a comb, stamps, or even a spare roll of 100 dollar bills."
The new iPod Pica also has optional accessories, including an armband carrier, a backpack, car attachment, ski pole dock, glue bottle, tooth mount, and fingertip straddleband, all available through the Apple Store.
