Apple announces new iPods, iTunes and "Ping" social network.

The iPod changed the game and now Apple is changing the iPod, introducing an overhaul for every version.

The company's adding elements to the iPod Touch previously found on its iPhone: Front and rear facing cameras as well as its video chat feature, Facetime.

The company's tiny iPod shuffle is seeing a return of buttons and square shape, while the iPod Nano is getting the addition of touch screen technology for managing music.

Apple's newest version of its iTunes software is adding a new social element called Ping that allows users to follow friends and musicians.

The company is also moving to jump-start its struggling Apple TV device.

It's a box that connects to your TV for streaming movies and shows over the internet.

They've cut the price from $299 to $99 and made it smaller, but it only allows high definition rentals, not purchases.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs says the new service will be available within a month.

The new iPods hit stores next week.

The price for the base model of the iPod Touch will rise from $199 to $229 for the 8gb
model.

A 32 gigabyte model will sell for $299 and a 64 gigabyte model for $399.
