Ear pods

engineered to minimize sound loss and maximize sound output better remote to control volume, playback of music and videos and answer/end phone calls greater protection against sweat and water available today for $29 will be included with new products The new line of products are a solid evolution from the previous models or versions. I am not completely convinced that the earpods are going to be much better than the earbuds. I will reserve judgement until I have a chance to use them. I am looking forward to iOS 6. I am particularly interested in how Apple's maps will work compared to the google maps now. Thankfully my devices are compatible. Surely there will be some features that either do not work, or do not work well. That is to be expected. The tech world does not sit still, nor does it wait for stragglers. Even ones that are not all that far behind. What are your thoughts. Did Apple live up to its hype? Are you interested/excited by any of the announcements? Let us know in the comment section.
