Macworld - updates 

iTunes has sold over 2 billion songs; 1.2 bn in 2006.

Paramount will join Disney in selling movies through iTunes.

Appletv was shown - it was previewed in September and is a wi-fi connected device that can store and stream content to you wide screen tv from iTunes including music. Of course, the default encoding on iTunes is not hi-fi....

The way that Jobs presented the features of Appletv seemed to be laying the gauntlet down to MicrosoftTV/MediaCenter - the interface looked like the one I saw for MediaCenter a while ago.

Appletv will be available in March and will retail for $299.


Apple iPhone availabe in the UK in Q4. Disappointing.

Can you please pinch some for Project Redstripe?>
