Bye Bye iPod HiFiApple has imposed its retail death sentence on the iPod HiFi, with the product at 'end of life' status.

The news is likely to be buried by the avalanche of iPod and iTunes-related news emanating this evening straight out of Apple HQ.

Speaking under conditions of strict anonymity, UK resellers confirmed the news during a huddled virtual meeting with Macworld UK tonight.

It's not clear whether the company intends releasing a revised version of the system, but the iPod HiFi is no longer available for purchase from the company's UK online Apple store.
