I was thrilled to bring you the news that you will be able to watch Olympic events on your laptop, and even download them for later watching offline. And all for free.
And then I read the announcement more carefully. The system is available only to users of Vista. No Macs need apply, nor Linux users, nor even other Windows versions, like us XP users who are hanging in there as long as possible.
David Chartier at Ars Technica explains it all. Dang.
No word yet on NBC's plans for Olympics coverage adapted to mobile platforms like iPods and video players. But surely there will be some? Won't there?
With the new, lower price of the iPhone 3G that Apple releases July 11th, it is expected that demand will exceed supply.
Reuters.reported this statement from Morgan Stanley: "We believe the market generally expects a doubling of iPhone units with the lower price point ($199) and we believe this is realistic, if not conservative." The bank expects 27 million iPhones to be sold in calendar year 2009 "with an average revenue of $550 per unit."
As Mia wrote recently, the next-generation iPhone features a faster Internet access that will run on advanced wireless networks. That in itself is enough to get most of us iPhoners excited. See you in line.
