Full screen video madness

Is this the real Video iPod? MacShrine has a picture of what appears to be a full screen iPod. These photos match up pretty well with the drawings from the US Patent and Trademark Office we posted a few weeks ago detailing a touch sensitive GUI for portable devices. Apple appears to be combining gestures into a form where a user will not have to use any form of clicking or pressing buttons. As it appears currently, the pictures indicate that users will be able to navigate the entire user interface by using gestures exclusively.

Figures that something like this pop up as soon as I pick up a 30GB 5G iPod.

Open the "photo" in Photoshop. Convert to B&W to get rid of all the distracting color information (humans have very low ability to discern color resolution). Play with gamma levels.

See all the black bars pop in around the screen image? That's a copy and paste job.

Agreed. Plus, what's the deal with the Chinese (or some Asian language) characters? Apple is based in the US! I suppose it's possible that an Asian American engineer is working in an Apple development lab, but what are the odds they're going to label things in an Asian language?

iPods are made in China.

Produced in China, designed in the US.
