It's Only Rock And Roll

I'm sure that you're familiar with the announcements from Apple's 'It's only rock and roll' event. Hosted at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, everyone had read the speculation and today Steve Jobs returned to provide the details.

The introduction of new, video camera, mic and speaker equipped iPod Nano, iTunes 9 providing a collection of new features including the ability to share to social networks, and iPhone OS 3.1 which introduces Genius for apps and other improvements.

I'm currently updating to iTunes 9 and also iPhone OS 3.1, should have waited until tomorrow but like that was considered. For further coverage check out the many extensive live blogs and in depth analysis. Disappointed that the Beatles back catalogue weren't made available but I'm not too bothered as I have many of their albums already! [UPDATE] The app recommendations provided by Genius aren't exactly incredible, does that mean the service is flawed or personal choice of applications not being cool enough?! :)
