Videodrome

iTunes 4.8 now features support for video playback within the application, fueling speculation that a video iPod and download movie service is imminent. You now have the ability to drag and drop movie clips from your computer into the iTunes Library for easy cataloging and organization. Clips appear with a new movie camera icon in your library; however, categories such as “album” and “composer” continue to be used for these files, and no new “videos” or “movies” genre has been added to accommodate them.



Given that PIXAR is owned by Steve Jobs, Apple is ripe for further repositioning as a content delivery platform light years ahead of propositions from TiVo, Xbox 360 or PS3!
