Last month's Apple Expo in Paris came and went without any announcement of iPod peripherals, a rumor that had been circulating the web in recent months as well as echoed by one Think Secret source.
What happened? One source explains that Apple is ironing out some issues with the next update to the iPod firmware, iPod Software 2.1. As soon as that update is ready, the company will reportedly announce the new peripherals. While Apple had indeed hoped to release the accessories in Paris, the software issues made such a release impossible. Separately, another source says that iPod recording is still coming, but is being held up due to a software issue -- likely connected to the iPod Software 2.1 delay.

"iPod recording?!" I would jump at the chance to buy a recordable iPod. Forget about a powerbook or new desktop. I've been waiting for one for nearly two years. I'm somewhat regretting earlier portable music purchases. Hell, I'm already feenin' for iPod accessories.
