MacNotables #941: Ted Landau on iPod nano Video, Ringtones, the iPhone Closed Platform and More

Ted LandauTed Landau and host Chuck Joiner start out by debating the burning question, “Is a video camera a compelling addition to the iPod nano,” covering uses both serious and frivilous. Then the new ringtone options take center stage for a discussion of the inconsistencies and challenges over the way this all works in iTunes 9. If you’re a ringtone fan, you need to hear about Ted’s adventures with what works and what doesn’t. Ted tells a story about “old” iPod options, covers the video camera you already have (but might not think about), compares the iPhone vs. the Mac as open platforms, and clarifies that his last column at MacFixIt was not his obituary.
