Just weeks after being purchased by Cisco, Flip appears to be releasing a new device in its hugely successful range of pocket-friendly digital palmcorders. The Ultra HD was purchased at Best Buy for $200 by a fan, who spared no time posting all about it on his Web site.

At an event in San Francisco this morning, Steve Jobs announced a new version of the iPod Nano and of the iPod Classic. It now has an aluminum shell with a long form factor and an oval shape, and is now "the thinnest iPod ever." The iPod Nano comes in 8 and 16 GB models with a respective $149 and $199 price. The Nano now detects portrait or landscape orientation like the iPod Touch and the iPhone. And the new iPod Nano comes in a rainbow of colors!
