Apple went iPod crazy on Tuesday, and released an updated Nano, a new Touch, a larger (and cheaper) Classic, and Shuffles in all new (for them) colors.
The tech blogs have all managed to beat this news into the ground already, so Iâ€™m not going to dive into the details, but what I am going to wonder aloud about is this: Why did it take Apple so long to release an iPod in a rainbow of colors? (Or Nano-Chromatic in Apple speak.)
While Apple was busy doling out doses of iPod five flavors at a time, ColorWare managed to make an entire business out of taking your iPod and adding color to it, and they even charge an extra fee to do so.
Itâ€™s obvious that the demand for colors has always existed, as evidenced by Appleâ€™s decision to release their products in various (limited) colors along the way, and the mere existence of ColorWave, so why hasnâ€™t Apple jumped on this bandwagon before?
The world may never knowâ€¦
