    Cinematology.com Launch

    FYI, http://www.Cinematology.com is launching soon with DRM-Free, H.264/AVC MP4 video downloads. Should work great on the upcoming video iPod!

    You're all wrong...

    I have it on fairly good authority that the soon-to-be-announced product will be the "iPod iMplant" consisting of a 4 or 8 gig SD card implanted in the skull, along with a Firewire port just above the bridge of the nose. Headphones are no longer necessary, but a banana shaped antenna can be installed, at additional cost, a few inches below the navel. Should make for some interesting "silhouette" advertisements.

    no laptop/desktop

    Apple will only announce something that they will begin shipping immediately. This is the holiday buy period.. I don't think they'd show a laptop and desktop now, which would ruin sales until they came out (and those machines aren't ready to go yet)--

    Vid iPod is in works

    The video iPod will take advantage of the following:
    -the same "playback" hardware interface as iPod photo.
    -Fairplay for DVD ripping: encodes DVD's into Quicktime & Fairplay encoded files which will render sharing virturally impossible.
    -Will allow limited burning.
    -iTunes will begin offering full length programming.
    - And finally, Apple will become the first internet television provider. How? Look at Tivo and the use of digital video recorders. To be able to download a show that would normally be available via cable and watch it anytime you want. This business model will compete directly with "on-demand" television currently offered by Cable providers, and soon-to-be telco providers new fiber-optic broadband service.
    Apple will beat them all with the iTunes store that will now start selling video.

    How technically. Anyone know Akamai? The same distributed server system will be utilized to conserve bandwidth. And besides, much of this back-end stuff will be located at the growing network of Apple Stores.

    You think I'm kidding? Keep watching.
