Steve Jobs has been demurring about the next evolution of the iPod, but things are happening.
Today’s a scoop bonanza on Apple’s rumored upcoming video iPods. No sooner did I post an item earlier today on Apple’s plans to make music videos available through iTunes than my fellow B2.0 editor-at-large Paul Sloan shoots me an e-mail saying that he’s confirmed exactly the same thing. But my man Sloan, who wrote our April cover story predicting the video iPod and other upcoming Apple products, says that the content for the video iPod could be more than just music videos. According to him:
Steve Jobs has spoken with Disney President and soon-to-be CEO Bob Iger about ways to license various Disney content for a video iPod, according to an internal Disney email I have obtained. That could include anything from clips from ESPN and ABC News to short cartoons.
