Apple Announces the Mactendo (okay, it's the iPod Touch really)

Apple's keynote today wasn't too earth shattering. A new iTunes, which means new Quick Time headaches, and a new Front Row (they all kind of go hand-in-hand).

Except, if you're Nintendo. Hasn't the iPod Touch become the ultimate portable gaming machine now? The Mactendo has the motion sensitivity of a Nintendo Wii tied to the portability of the DS. I'm guessing Nintendo are keeping a close eye on how this effects sales of their systems.

Nice touch Apple (sorry about the pun). I may seriously have to look at getting one.

Reference: Mactendo (n) derogative term PC users used to define Macs back in the early 1980's. Funny really, since PCs became the gamers computer of choice.
