Apple Music Event - new iPod TouchToday, Apple announced a slew of new products including the new iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, Apple TV and iTunes 10.

iTunes 10 comes with a new feature called "Ping", that enables people to see what songs friends or music celebrities are buying. Users "follow" each other (like Twitter) and get updates of their friend purchases, much like Blippy does, but iTunes stuff only. You can also rent TV shows for $0.99 but we'll see if that hits our shores or not.

The iPod Touch is basically an iPhone 4, without the cell service, in the fact that it has a retina display, HD video recording, FaceTime, etc.

Apple TV

The Apple TV gets Netflix, YouTube and more. By more they mean, Flickr and your MobileMe Gallery. Again, Netflix is not available in our country, so pffft meh sif as the cool kids would say. Still, the price is very good and I think Apple will sell a lot more of these than they did of the first generation.

For iPad users, there was also confirmation that the new iOS 4.2 will be available to them by November, 2010. This is good news, because I really want that PDF ability in iBooks, that I currently have on my iPhone 3GS, oh and not to mention background tasks.

Anyway, check out the live stream for full details.
