iPod Photo

iPod Photo
Apple is selling iPods in the millions this year but there is always room for improvement. The iPod Photo is a new model with a colour screen, a 40 or 60 GB drive and the ability to sync your iPhoto library as easily as it syncs your music. Plug it into your TV with the included cable and have a slide show with music. And, with the iTunes Music Store finally coming to Canada this month, who can resist!
