In all things Apple Speculation, one truth remains, trying to guess what Apple may or may not do next is never an exact science. In one fell swoop Steve Jobs has apparently dashed any hope of a video iPod, speaking from the All Things Digital conference, Jobs is quoted as saying “Portable video won’t be successful”, he explained, “until you can carry around a 50-inch video screen in your pocket”. Word brother, preach it.
At the risk of sounding like a fan-boy parrot, I have to agree. I’ve found myself using my iPod less and less lately, I can’t really think of a situation (other than flying) where I’d ever have use for a VideoPod. The article the quote came from has some other interesting bits as well, such as the up-coming iTunes 4.9.
