Die Rückkehr von 'Home on (Video) iPod'?

Weitere unterhaltsam sprudelnde Quellen äußern sich bei AppleInsider zu einem zukünftigen Video iPod, so ist weniger von Video Out die Rede als vielmehr von einem erheblich erweitereten Dock Connector: "Once the iPod has been connected to a TV, the player will somehow function in firewire hard disk mode, sources said. Users will then have be able to display video clips located in the iPod's 'movies' directory — such as movie trailers and personal iMovie creations — on the television screen. Likewise, sources said that the new player, along with its rumored color screen, will also allow users manage or preview photos on the iPod display or TV screen."
Zurückgegriffen soll dabei auf einen alten Bekannten werden: Die 'Home on iPod'-Funktionalität, die es aus ungeklärten Gründen nicht in 10.3 schaffte. MacRumors hat noch einen Mirror der ursprünglichen apple.com-Beschreibungsseite online:
"Panther's Home on iPod feature lets you store your home directory — files, folders, apps — on your iPod (or any FireWire hard drive) and take it with you wherever you go. When you find yourself near a Panther-equipped Mac, just plug in the iPod, log in, and you’re “home,” no matter where you happen to be. And when you return to your home computer, you can synchronize any changes you’ve made to your files by using File Sync, which automatically updates offline changes to your home directory."
