Video iPod

Apple introduced their much-anticipated and heavily-demanded video iPod today, along with a few other tidbits that are also just as juicy. The amazing thing that Apple's been able to pull off is to produce this new iPod, and deliver the content. For $1.99 you can download the latest ABC television episodes, Pixar shorts, and also music videos. The other great new products are Front Row and the iPod Remote.

I'm not too excited about the new iPod Remote, as it points at a new iPod dock. Which is very convenient if you happen to be using your iPod to move music around and for playback, but I don't. Front Row, however, is the launch of the Apple media center. Too bad it is currently only available for the new iMac. There is speculation that it may not be available for older machines; the IR requirement would need to be addressed.

Before I use a Mac for my DVD playback though, Apple needs to greatly improve its DVD Player image quality.
