Everything is out, and all of them got something new. That's what the people of the Infinity Loop did in their recent annual product announcement. And if you missed the fun, we have a scoop of the Apple press event just right here.

It seems like yesterday when people crammed their way in front of the Infinity Loop to hear what has to say about Antennagate. Last September 1, broadcast men and gadget writers made their way to San Francisco for the company’s annual product announcement. At 10:00 am PT, press people went inside the venue while a song from The Beatles fills the air. Then a round of cheering takes over as the lights started to dim and Steve Jobs and his partner Steve Wozniak takes the stage.

Wozniak initially talked about the Apple Retail. He pointed out that the company already has 300 retail stores, with the third London shop as the 300th. Plus there are now Apple Retail in US, UK, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, China, France, Germany, Italy and Australia. After that came the iOS. The iOS, that made iPad, iPod and iPhone possible, now has version 4.1 where all bugs that were reported are already fixed — plus a 4.2 that will be available this November. The 4.1 makes HDR photos, HD video upload through WiFi, TV Rentals and Game Center feasible. Meanwhile, 4.2 turns AirTunes to AirPlay, wherein users can stream music, photos and video over WiFi. So, 4.1 will be out next week hitting iPod Touch and iPhone, while iOS 4.2 will make its way to some iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Next on the list is the new line of iPods. The iPod Shuffle got the second generation’s button and design combined with the third generation’s voice over function. More over, the iPod Nano has a multi-touch screen instead of a clickwheel, FM radio, clock, photo app, and runs in iOS. Last in line is the iPod Touch that looks thinner, comes with Retina Display, Apple A4 Chip, 3-axis Gyro, and iOS 4.1 that anchors Game Center. With the new Touch, you can do FaceTime because of the front facing camera, and HD video recording with the rear camera. The new line of iPods will be available in the market starting next week.

Following the iPods is the 10. Available starting today, 10 got a new logo, clean list of songs, New Discovery feature, and Ping — a social network for music. The Ping will be available to 160 million users and will take your computer, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Last came the new and more affordable . Dubbed as and costs $99, it is 1/4 the size of the first , silent and cool. It has power supply, HDMI, Ethernet, and Optical Audio at the back, a built-in WiFi and a cord to the wall. The best feature of the iTV is the rental services that eliminates storing things on the device. It supports Netflix and YouTube streaming, plus photos from Flickr and MobileMe.

Wrapping it all up, we will have the new iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, and Apple TV. Have you decided what Apple gadget are you going to buy next?
