The scoop on the next iPod

Apple logo

Lawsuit or no lawsuit, Think Secret keeps dishing out the dirt on Apple, this time with some news about the fifth-generation iPod. It won't be out until around the middle of the year, but this one is supposed to have an 80GB drive (which makes sense since Toshiba makes one of those now), and will be more of a break from the earlier versions and sport a "more silver enclosure" to match what you'll find on the current line-up of Macs. They're also confirming something we more or less already knew, which was that the iPod mini is getting a bump up to 5GB very soon and will probably come in a bunch of new colors.
