Showtime: Flashback

Only 5 short days ago, I wrote:

The Apple iTunes music store needed a widely used iPod, easy-to-use iTunes software to get people to switch to the digital format, and the ability to easily burn CDs. For a movie store to catch on, all of these elements need to be in place. There need to be easy-to-use devices that allow people to view their downloaded movies on their favorite TV and easy to use software to manage those movies. And, people should be allowed to burn DVDs.

The software already exists, however broken and feature-poor it may be. The iTunes software already manages movies and Front Row already is Apple’s media centre software. The real trouble is a device that allows people to watch movies at their convenience without a long and tedious DVD burning process.

Nice to be proved correct once in a while- with pure speculation based on common sense, rather than rumors based on caffeine/sugar highs.


  • Except you can’t burn DVDs with movies from the iTunes store.
