"Now the fifth-generation iPod threatens to do the same thing for a new breed of portable video players. The iPod is dead; long live the iPod."

Would someone interpret the last sentence for me please? Thanks in advance.

it's easy to understand.

过去的IPOD已经‘死’了,出现的是新一代的IPOD.
The former ipod is on a time-shifting comeback. It's coming back in a different form. it's engineered with video play, long battery life, a thinner body.

a phonix is stronger after his rebirth from fire.

两个the定冠词说指不同,前一个the所指的是以前的,后一个the是指升版以后的。

Look to the history of Great Britain.

When the king dies a court official announces, "The King is dead, " then immediately proclaims "Long live the King", meaning there is now a new king on the throne, or if a Queen (Elizabeth I, Victoria, Elizabeth II), "Long live the Queen".
