    i love itunes

    i wish tuesday was every day of the week, because i love browsing itunes so much. i just wished there was even more of a better way to find amazing music. i have yet to really appreciate the new itunes essentials, i guess because when i toyed with it, i didn't find anything that pertained to my interest. itunes is amazing.

    Once 10.4 is released with the new version of Quicktime I bet we're going to starting hearing knuts-and-bolts talk about setting up a similar service for film distribution. Pair that up with the Mac Mini and you've got yourself quite the tv accessory.

    for adding a movie store. all you have to do is look how they added the music video section to itunes. that may be a test run for buying movies.

    re:iWatch

    That would be iDVD. Just like iTunes evolved, so could iDVD.

    You're all nuts

    You think that Hollywood is going to allow Apple to enable DVD burning of distributed video? Get real, folks.

    IF Apple decides to go with video distribution, the DRM is going to be intense. It is NOT going to be a personal video bootlegging solution.

    It's gotten to the point that the Apple faithful has tossed all common sense into the wind, choosing instead to live in fairytale land.
