We’re going to hazard a guess and say you might have already heard about the new Apple gadgets. After all, Apple’s cosmetic modifications to their product lines is bigger news than Heidi Montag’s. Unlike Heidi though, when Apple went back to the drawing board they came out with results we can (and will) get behind. Because all you need is a handful, right?

The iPod Touch now comes in 8gb ($229) / 32gb ($299) / 64gb ($399) sizes and packs… wait for it… FaceTime. That’s right, now you can join the amateur video orgy and you don’t even need an iPhone4. Plus it’s got an A4 processor, HD video, and 960×640 resolution.

Apple TV ($99) went reverse Michael Jackson and will no longer feel alienated among the rest of your home theater components. In addition to fitting in the palm of your hand, it has: instant rentals (including HD), Netflix streaming, 802.11n, and a tiny ass remote you can use to program your Harmony.

The iPod Nano got the Huey Lewis treatment and is now totally square. The 8gb ($149) and 16gb ($179) models now pack multi-touch, genius, iPod+Nike, FM Radio, and a clip so you can “keep the music moving with you” (we couldn’t make that shit up if we tried). Since it comes in 7 (SEVEN!) bright colors make sure you save your allowance because you’re going to want to catch them all.
