Steve Jobs and Co. crept under the radar with a secret press conference and announced the new wares it will be pushing this holiday season. In addition to an all-new, streaming-only Apple TV, Apple showed off its true moneymakers: an entirely revamped iPod line. The Shuffle got its buttons back, the Nano shrunk and received a touchscreen, and the Touch was updated with an extra camera, a faster chip, and Apple's newest mobile OS. If you listen closely, you can hear Jobs rapping to himself: "The winter's mine!". [Time]
