Awesome. With a dash of “finally”.
iTunes in the Cloud is great for music, but it’s really necessary for video. I have something like 500 GB worth of video content now just sitting on my hard drive. HD TV seasons are the worst culprits. I’d love to delete some of them and just stream as need-be. Hopefully this means I can do that now.
Also, the TV rentals on Apple TV were an absolute joke. It’s why the same four shows (24, Glee, Bones, etc) were always the top shows. There really was nothing else. And the problem was that while iTunes itself has plenty of TV content, most of it is for sale, not rent, so none of those previously showed up on Apple TV. You had to buy them on your computer (or iPad/iPhone). Now they’re there for the buying on Apple TV too.
Update: John Gruber notes that the cloud features don’t appear to be enabled for all shows. At least not yet.
RISD Industrial Design woodshop. One of the coolest places to be.
A band-saw in a workshop at RISD. It used to be on a Navy ship, and still has the US Navy signage on it. I liked the lettering a lot.
These three hit particularly close to home:
2. The Media Power Spinsters
In their defense, journalism does ruin your personal life.
3. People We Know That Work in Media Who Are Not Single But Also Not Really Dating Anybody. You Know How It is Sometimes.
Because we really do know too many people in the media.
6. The Shortest, Fattest White Men in New York Media
Writing doesn’t give you a lot of time to exercise, and forget about sunlight.
Funny? Yes. So true they make me wanna cry a little? Even more yes.
