Help, Guides, and News on making the Switch To Apple Macintosh Computers
Did Apple's Response to a French bill indirectly hint at a Movie Download Service?
Apple Computer responsed to the effort by French lawmakers aimed at forcing the company to open iPods and Tunes to work with competing digital media products. Did Apple's statement hint at a Movie download service?
I find the following from the Apple statement quite interesting:
"Free movies for iPods should not be far behind in what will rapidly become a state-sponsored culture of piracy."
As I read that, I was inclined to intrepret the statement to mean that Apple would oppose "free movies" on iPods. If that's the case, is this an indication that Apple is on the path of a movie download service and a true Video iPod? Apple has not indicated if they will offer such a service, but the sentence from their statement could mean that the service is planned.
