Apple - Mac: Why no video iPod?
Why no video? That's the question everyone has been asking since Apple introduced the iPod Photo. Critics charge that Steve Jobs has missed the boat this time; he's wrong, wrong, wrong about handheld video players -- perhaps even deliberately misleading the public "because of his ties to the movie industry." I don't think he's wrong. I think he's right. Jobs is hanging back while Microsoft leads its hardware partners over a cliff.

MPAA to Sue Over Movie File Sharing
The movie industry announced yesterday it will file its first wave of lawsuits later this month against those it alleges are illegally sharing copyrighted films on the Internet, joining the music industry in its fight against piracy.

The Motion Picture Association of America, which represents major Hollywood studios such as Sony Pictures Entertainment and Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures Corp., plans to file about 200 suits against computer users who put illegally obtained movies on Internet file-sharing services for other users to download and watch for free.

Win - MS: Gates: Broadcast TV on its way out
Bill Gates predicts a future for the entertainment industry in which traditional broadcast television is rendered irrelevant. It's a positive vision, however, because new and better business models made possible by technology are emerging.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Microsoft chairman and chief software architect recalled a conversation in 1991 during which Larry Tisch was having buyer's remorse over his investment in CBS, noting that the impending changes were evident even then.

Apple - Mac: Rumored Color iPod is not a Photo Viewer

Contributed by: Harry Rider
:: Open Content

Mac rumor site Think Secret published details for a soon to be released update to Apple's iPod that features a color screen. Harry Rider submitted the following editorial to osOpinion/osViews which suggests that the general consensus of the color screen being for photo previewing is wrong given the fact that its small size is not conducive for portable photos. He believes that the color screen is instead the viewer window for recorded video from an iSight/iPod combination.

*NIX - UNIX: Linux blunder Down Under could land MPAA in court
What seems to be an embarrassing blunder by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) in its hunt for online pirates has prompted Linux Australia to contact its legal representatives and warn of a possible breach of Australian law.

Linux Australia president Pia Smith told Builder AU the MPAA had issued Linux Australia with a notice of claimed infringement demanding the group cease providing access to two copyrighted movies -- one called "Grind" and the other "Twisted" -- and ordering it to "take appropriate action against the account holder". However, the files in question had nothing to do with those movies.

Apple - Mac: Is TiVo NeXT? Company is ripe for an Apple takeover.
Everyone who has TiVo loves TiVo; it is to television what Macintosh was to computing -- a revelation. Which is exactly why Apple should buy TiVo and once again redefine the intersection of culture and technology.

Folks love TiVo for the same reason they loved the Mac in 1984 and the iPod in 2001: It gives control back to the end user. TiVo viewers call the shots regarding when, how, and -- soon -- even where they watch. Once content or access is purchased, the end user is in charge, just like with the iPod.

Portable video may have tiny audience
"We see the video player market as a natural progression for MP3," said Archos chief operating officer Brad Wallace. "We can do everything you can with an iPod."

Analysts are less bullish about the category. "As a mass-market device, I think it's unlikely to succeed," said Paul O'Donovan, a principal analyst at Gartner Inc. "I think it's a very neat, very clever technology, but that doesn't guarantee a market."

Illegal Movie Downloads Are Growing, Hollywood Says
Despite the movie industry's efforts to nip online piracy in the bud, the Motion Picture Association of America says its worst fears are coming true. People are illegally downloading more movies, and as a result they're paying to view movies less frequently, according to a study conducted by the MPAA and online research firm OTX.

The study, released Thursday, indicates that nearly a quarter of Internet users have downloaded unlicensed copies of films, and that half of those did so for the first time within the past year.
