iPods iPads ePads (that’s about the size of it)

While Apple makes us wait until the end of April for the iPad it is interesting to compare my original (2005) 1 GB iPod Shuffle and Martine’s new (2009) 8GB iPod Nano.

Mine plays music. Her not very much larger but considerably thinner one plays music… and videos and has a radio and a video camera built in and records audio memos etc. etc..

It was back in 2005 when [W:Saturday Night Live] were predicting that things would become even smaller…

But then we may not bother waiting for the iPad and just go with the ePad instead…
