MacNotables #832: Christopher Breen on “Let’s Rock,” His New Lynda.Com Video and His Banjo

Christopher BreenMacworld Senior Editor Christopher Breen tantalizes us with what he thinks we will and won’t see at Apple’s September 9 “Let’s Rock” special event in the way of iPods. A new widescreen iPod nano? An enhanced iPod Classic? New features for the iPod touch? Chris talks about the viability of all of these, why more features dictate performance compromises, and his thoughts on what should happen to iTunes to make it a bit more approachable. Not just an iPod guy, Chris also talks about his newest title from that covers MacOS X 10.5 Leopard “Beyond the Basics,” and some of the behind-the-scenes aspects of producing a top-notch training video. On a more personal note, Chris also shares some news about personal acquisitions, and why we may soon introduce him as a banjo hero (yes, *banjo* hero).
