Victoria, the first Apple assistant

Do you know about Apple Victoria? Probably not, as it’s the code name for an Apple product rather than its final name. In reality, it’s the Nike+, a small accessory for the iPod nano (and iPhone).

However, the online manual on the FCC website states that ‘Victoria is your personal workout assistant,’ somewhat like a pre-Siri. It’s interesting to compare this draft of the manual with the final version, as some formulations were modified between validation and product release. Interestingly, the FCC manual doesn’t mention the brand with the comma even once.

For those interested, it is possible to hack the receiver and do some fun things…
