Other Points of Interest: iPod Hi-Fi, Universal Dock, iPod Component Video

With help from various readers, we've pulled out some other points of interest that were buried in today's announcements.

Demise of iPod Hi-Fi?
While Apple still has a product page for its high-end iPod Hi-Fi accessory, readers have noted that the product has been removed from Apple's online store. Think Secret had previously predicted the Hi-Fi's demise, apparently due to lackluster sales.

New Universal Dock, Component Video
Apple has quietly unveiled a new Universal Dock. It appears to be largely similar to the universal dock it replaces, and it supports all iPods released today as well as the 5G iPod (5G iPod "classic") and iPhone.

Apple has also added component video output to the iPods announced today via a component video cable. Apple states that component video output is currently supported with the iPod Nano (3G) and iPod classic (6G) at 480p or 576p, and the iPod Touch at 480i or 576i resolution.


Stay tuned for an analysis of today's announcements and how the rumor community did with its predictions.
