Watch jkOnTheRun Audio Edition #23 here (WMV format, 640 x 480, 60.6 MB, 11:02 minutes)

Icon_128x128With the new Apple announcements today, it became apparent to me that the new iTunes Movies would be a nice marriage of Microsoft Windows based hardware and Apple software. I decided to download both iTunes 7 as well as a movie. Initial thoughts:

  • 640 x 480 resolution is pretty solid on a UMPC device
  • The new iTunes interface is very slick and usable
  • Audio quality of the movies is very good
  • People have to realize we’re taking evolutionary steps towards downloadable high-def content; this was the next evolutionary step due to bandwidth and infancy of the high-def display market which is just now coming of age.
  • I’d prefer to watch a downloaded VGA movie on a UMPC as opposed to carrying an optical drive and packaged content.

There seems to be 2 places to put comments here, to shorten the other comment: if the movie is in VGA format, how come it displays in 16:9 format.

KC, question to you… what is the side of the movie? And second question, have to checked if you can burn that movie into a DVD?
