For weeks now, Mac-o-philes have been slavering over the possibility of a redesigned Video iPod, rumored to be slated for release this spring. The latest whispers are that the device will be introduced on April 1, the 30th anniversary of the founding of Apple Computers, and that it will be approximately the same size as the current iPod, only with a full-size, horizontally viewable screen. Today I found this video that supposedly shows what it will look like. It’s pretty neat-looking, but is it a hoax? My guess is probably. Who would leak this to You Tube? And could the click wheel really be a part of the screen like that? Wouldn’t it get all smudgy? Huh. Questions abound… —Megan Miller
