Download media and apps from the iTunes and App Stores, then organize your collection. Tackle the Touch.

Relish the Nano. Enjoy video and photos on the Nano's new big screen, and chart your workouts with the Nike+ pedometer. Master the Shuffle and Classic. Get mucho music on the little Shuffle, and use the Classic's giant hard drive to tote around your audio and video collections. Pump it up. Blast iPod tunes through your home and car stereo.
