Digg founder Kevin Rose is at it once again, following his accurate prediction Apple would reveal the next steps in its digital music strategy at a special event on September 9.


Rose reckons Apple will introduce iTunes 8 and newly designed iPod touch and nano ranges at lower prices – and has now revealed a host of new information concerning iTunes 8.

"iTunes 8 includes Genius," Rose writes on his blog, "which makes playlists from songs in your library that go great together. Genius also includes Genius sidebar, which recommends music from the iTunes Store that you don’t already have.

"With iTunes 8, browse your artists and albums visually with the new Grid view; download your favorite TV shows in HD quality from the iTunes Store; sync your media with iPod nano (4th generation), iPod classic (2nd generation), and iPod touch (2nd generation); and enjoy a stunning new music visualizer."

Rose also adds, "the new iTunes 8.0 visualizations are really trippy – there is one with planet like objects wrapping around each other w/stars/light streams."

The news comes as some reports claim Apple will NOT announce its iTunes Unlimited music subscription service next week.
