Gruber on Showtime

John Gruber (of Daring Fireball) has a fantastic analysis of Apple’s “Showtime” announcements from earlier in this week. Go check it out.

I was just glad that Apple didn’t make the mistake I saw coming — charging me once for The Incredibles and then again for Quicktime to watch it full-screen. When I went to the Quicktime download page to update my install, I saw the Pro upgrade teaser and thought, no, they wouldn’t, would they? But they didn’t.

    What I want to know is, will the iTV be able to record shows/films from TV? That would really make it a killer app.

    It doesn’t have TV signal inputs, so no. The way to go would be to record TV shows on your Mac using EyeTV, or MythTV or such I suppose.
