having read about “its showtime“, i’m blown away.
on an unrelated note, the yearning for a macbook, just for the sake of the beauty of those things grows..
itunes 7, movies, and updated ipods & nanos were always a given. the tiniest possible shuffle ? itv ? you kidding me ? have the mac-men taken the lead in the “digital home” race ? they’ve completely knocked the socks off the rumours out there anyway. most of them, actually came true !
all the DRM, lack of compatibility be damned.. you fall in love with the sheer “sleek” of the apple gadgets. never have i wanted things so much. and known that i’ll probably never go for fulfilling it. dammit.
DRM reminds me, the new feature of itunes involves allowing authorized computers to access the music off the ipod. music thats been bought off itunes. but transfers are allowed, provided that both computers are authorized. very interesting compromise between RIAA and user-requirement.
and then back to “wow. just wow.”
