iTMS does video

So, it looks like the rumours that started yesterday about apple's latest version of iTunes ( 4.8 ) supporting video are true. Apple's iTunes Music Store is now selling videos (as well as music). But here's the best part (from ):

These videos are simply animated shorts rather than music videos - and in this particular instance - do not utilize any Digital Rights Management.

One would have to think that this is a first step in a move toward distributing movies, etc, via iTunes - which makes the often rumoured 'iHome' machine look much more probable.

It's also one more reason for me to re-consider picking up a mac mini for the living room. I've sold Sandi on the beauty of tv torrents - but the dance i do to hook my powerbook up to the TV is less than ideal, and means that my powerbook has to be available.... ah, if only money grew on trees.
