Once again, Europe has to wait…
I haven’t bought any films or TV from iTunes (DVD still preferred) but I can easily see myself renting. DVD rental with no waiting for the post – decide what you want to watch and then watch it straight away – video on demand has been around for so long but iTunes is the first decent implementation. The pricing seems reasonable, too, if they don’t charge us the usual premium for being outside the US.
Meanwhile, with HD rentals, is this a new player in the field, already over-crowded with Blu-ray and HD-DVD…?
Also from the keynote: the Time Capsule. Presumably it can also be a regular Airport Disk (can it be partitioned?) Has it got AirTunes? (I bet it hasn’t). And the MacBook Air. I guess I was wrong to disbelieve the rumours on the grounds they couldn’t use such a rubbish name. Pricey, but I guess worth paying if it’s a second Mac and you really can’t be bothered with the extra couple of pounds.
