If you didn\’t see this coming, your blind. Many of you have iPods that play mp3s. Many of you have iPods with color screens. Many of you have the ones that can hold photos to show friends. Let\’s see, sound, display, massive amounts of hard drive space… Oh I know what the iPod should do next… It should play movies… Guess what… as of today… It does! (can\’t say I didn\’t see it coming).
If you just have to have one: store.apple.com
Really, that\’s all I\’m going to say about that. Next thing you know, iPods will come with a built in TV reciever and a video camera attachment for high quality video editting. I tell ya… Let the iPod rule the world… Right after Google and Microsoft get done with it… Oh I got it… An iPod running Windows Internet Explorer but only on Google Websites… That\’s the next big thing… I tell ya 😉 (Maybe that\’s to much of a good thing).
In other news: I have no other news.

You know, when you were talking about this the other day I honestly figured it probably existed…and now it does. Wow…amazing. Sick…yet amazing.
Wow, I can't believe how short the battery life is when playing video on this thing. Apple's specs give it only two hours.
WTF?? I'm better off using my laptop. 3-4 hours of battery, plus a bigger scree.n 🙂
ipod battery life is reduced for two reasons: they have gotten thinner, reducing available battery space (despite hard drive advances) and a big screen needs a big backlight. we hope that their TV out performance will be greater since the screen will not be on (though that is doubtful, given processor-intensive decoding).
more interesting is apple's "Front Row" application, which as some say is "begging … just begging" ( daringfireball.net ) to be put onto a TV. front row, then would mark an important step in apple's march to the living room. here is what has been postulated ( <a href="http://www.pbs.org” target=”_blank”>www.pbs.org the mac mini (perfectly suited for the living room with its diminuitive size, quite operation, and elegant appearance) further advances in specs, and apple cuts an h.264 deal with studios to distribute movies online. mac mini with DVI out (and a dongle for those in the stoneage RCA / coaxial connections) is the player, an evolved iTunes media store is the deliverer.
suddenly, there's no reason to ever visit blockbuster again.
I should start up the imovie shop… But i bet apple already has it.
