Super Tuesday: Nike Pro and iTunes unlimited?
With Tuesday's iPod event beginning to take shape, a couple of Super Tuesday rumors slipped through the cracks in my fortune teller piece yesterday.

1. TUAW thinks that we may see an updated Nike+ rig (Nike Pro?) for the runners out there. Since the original Nike+ kit came out in 2006 it kinda smells like an old gym sneaker these days. How about adding using the GPS chip and maybe make it work for walking too? Nike could take a page out of Loopt's book, IMHO.

2. Also lost in the excitement is iTunes unlimited. Apple's rumored subscription service is rumored to cost US$130 per year and I think that it's only a leak to gauge interest. Mostly because I'm not a big fan of renting my music, or DRM.

3. Sirius satellite radio. Content is king and what better way to boost iPod/iPhone sales than with more content. Don't look for a satellite radio radio though. Sirius/XM content will most likely be streamed.

4. Oh and NFL. Kickoff for the world's greatest sport begins tonight and Apple really needs an NFL app for us junkies. I need something to replace wap.nfl.com and myiphonefootball.com. Please?
