?Now, a lot of people watch DVDs in their iMac, and it would be nice to control them from across the room. Now you
can.? [Loads DVD of The Incredibles with menu that blurs out the typically unusable menu on the DVD with an iPod-style

The iPod. We announced yesterday that we had shipped almost 30 million iPods. Our market share, 75% of all MP3 players
shipping. Five weeks ago we introduced the iPod nano. And you know what? We shipped over a million iPod nanos in the
first 17 days, and we could not meet demand. But what about the white iPod? It?s been a huge success for us. And
therefore, we?re going to replace it. The new white iPod. And yes, it does video.
Specs: Same width and height as current model, but thinner. QVGA (324 x 240) pixel 260,000 color 2.5-inch display.
h.264 and MPEG-4 at 30 fps. TV out. 30GB and 60GB models. Same width and height. 30GB is 31% thinner than the curent
20GB model [Making it 0.44-inches thick?say wha?]. 60G is 12% thinner than 20GB. 30G up to 75 hours of video,
$299. 60G up to 150 hours video, $399. Shipping in one week.

The new iPod will be 30% thinner than the current 20GB iPod (making it 0.44-inches thick?say wha?), and will feature
a 60GB version (which should be thinner than the current 0.63-inch thick 20GB iPod), and editions of both in black.
What?s the device named, you ask? The iPod. That?s it, just The iPod. Well spare you the Prince jokes. The iPod will
have TV out.
iTunes. You know, we have distributed over 200 million copes of iTunes now in the world, and those are only the copies
we know about. iTunes in the US has an 84 percent market share for all legally downloaded music. We released iTunes 5
just five weeks ago, but a lot has changed. And so today we?re introducing iTunes 6. We?ve been busy!
Gifting. This has been the most requested feature. You can gift (i.e. buy) iTunes songs for someone else by
song, album, or playlist.
Just for You. Personalized recommendations. We?re going to be recommending albums and singles based on what
you?ve bought before. It?s going to be a beta, we?d like your feedback on it.
Video. If we?re going to be able to play video on the iPod we?re going to need away to buy video. Starting today
we have 2,000 music videos for sale.[Shows Madonna catalogue]
What do they cost? $1.99 each. But we didn?t stop there; we?re adding some other videos you can buy. Pixar is
putting up six of their award-winning short videos. $1.99 each. We are downloading videos 320 x 240, which is the
native resolution of the iPod. They?re about the size of six songs. All songs are governed by FairPlay. You can play
them on up to five computers. They?re not rentals. You own them ? they never time out. [Demo of gifting, customer
reviews, Just for You, and videos including ?Vogue,? a U2 live exclusive. Demo of watching U2 video using Front Row on
an iMac, playing photos and videos from an iPod on a big screen]
One more thing?
We have one more thing today, a pretty big thing. We?re announcing one more thing that you can buy off the iTunes
store today, and that is TV shows. What?s the number one show on TV? What?s the second? Lost. And who has these shows?
ABC. And who owns ABC? [Disney logo on screen.] I know those guys!
Lost, Desperate Housewives, Night Stalker, That?s So Raven, The Suite Life.
Yes, you can buy current episodes, and you can buy them the day after they are broadcast. They?re ad free so you don?t
need to fast forward through the commercials, 320 x 240 again. An hour show is about the size of five albums. Depending
on your speed it?s about 10-20 minute to download an episode. What are they going to cost? $1.99 an episode for current
season and past seasons. We have free previews on every episode.
