SAN FRANCISCO, California ( TheStreet) -- Apple's ( AAPL) big music event today saw the consumer tech giant overhaul its iPod and iTunes offerings and renew its efforts to turn Apple TV into a success

Anyone waiting for news about a Verizon ( VZ) iPhone, however, was sorely disappointed, as Apple CEO Steve Jobs refreshed the company's line of portable music players. This included new versions of the iPod nano and iPod Touch. The Apple boss also took the wraps off Ping, a music-focused social network for iTunes users.

The Apple event took place at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center, although the tech giant broke with recent tradition and offered a live stream of its press conference.
