  • [Rumor] iPod Touch Firmware 2.1 and iTunes 8 in 3-4 Weeks
    Do ya'll know who Kevin Rose is? He's the co-founder of Digg. These days he seems to have a hobby of making predictions of what Apple is going to do next. His latest great super secret info says that the iPod Touch will have firmware 2.1 and iTunes 8 will be released in the next 3-4 weeks.



    Of course if history repeats itself don't hold too much weight in this rumor -- Kevin isn't on a great streak with his most recent predictions.

    - The iPhone 3g would have a front facing camera Nope
    - The iPhone 3g would be launched in June Nope
    - The iPhone 3g would be launched the second week of June Nope
    - A low-end iPhone would be added to the lineup for the price of $200 coinciding with the 3g launch So close, except subsidizing, not a cheap low-end version so Nope

      google maps supports the entire planet, but I'm not sure about the LocateMe feature (for 2g phones) and/or gps feature (for 3g). The locateme uses a combination of cell tower triangulation and wifi hot-spots to get a fairly good idea of where you are.

      I think Street view would complete google maps on the iPhone

      if we could send more than 1 pic at a time it would be better but the phone takes so long to open up the photo's, find which you want to send, send to email takes a few secs, wait for it to send.....

      all this would have taken 1/2 the time with MMS and PLUUUUSSSS, not everyone has pimp phones like we do that get emails

      Hopefully mods will ban vinny for making **** up. If you actually are an apple dev why not post a vid? You're already breaking the nda by talking about it. 2.1 will come and go and none of the features you mentioned will be in it.

      He already said that it will be GPS using Edge and Wifi. In other words, it will improve what the iphone does already. I wouldn't be surprised if what he said is true, its nothing impossible you know.

      Very little he said panned out, which anyone could have easily guessed like fixing the bugs that people's been complaining about (like slow backups and stability issues). No new itunes 8 design, no mms, no copy/paste, no push, no gps, no nothing.

      Hopefully the mods start banning people for making up ****. All it does is make MMi become a source of rumors instead of a reputable iPhone community.
