YouTube on Apple TV

In brief: Software arrives for watching YouTube videos on the Apple TV, MacNN reviews a battery for the iPod video, Iconkits produces new collections, and baseball fans witness unusual changes at the iTunes Store. Though it is possible to manually convert YouTube videos for the Apple TV, a plug-in called A Series of Tubes allows users to browse popular categories (Recently Featured, Week's Most Viewed, etc.) without the extra effort. It does however require v0.5 or later of Perian on the settop, and Tubes is installed through software such as ATVLoader.

NuPower ViDEO+ reviewed

Now posted is a review of NewerTech's NuPower ViDEO+, an expanded battery for the iPod video. Whereas the default life of the 60GB player is approximately 20 hours of music, the ViDEO+ multiplies this by four, giving users 80 hours of music, or 16 hours of video. A 30GB player jumps from 12 to 40 hours of music. NewerTech is currently selling the product for $50.

New Iconkits collections

Iconkits has begun selling three new collections for software developers, called Profile Addon 2, 3 and 4. The icons are done in a minimalist black-and-white style, and cover everything from music control to finances and currency. Each pack contains 20 icons in four different sizes, and costs $50.

Baseball comes and goes at iTunes Store

Those who have been using the iTunes Store to watch baseball may have noticed some changes. setteB.IT observes that Major League Baseball has already pulled its Games of the Week feature six weeks in, but that this has been replaced by Games of the Year, which has seven videos for download. In an incidental move, the iTunes Store is featuring older Indianapolis 500 races from 1982, 1985, 1992 and 2006.
