Mix: Google, BusinessWeek report, iPod bandits, David Pogue

At the Consumer Electronics Show late last week, Google officially announced its Google Video Store, with content from CBS, the NBA, Sony BMG, Charlie Rose and more.

As part of a special report on Apple, BusinessWeek has posted the following articles: “More Apple Miracles in 2006?,” “Just What Apple Needs: Intel,” “The Latest Add-Ons for iPods,” “The Great European iPod Famine,” “Facts from the Apple Rumor Mill” and “How Apple Could Mess Up, Again.”

Two “brazen bandits” walked behind an electronics counter in a Connecticut CompUSA during business hours to steal $8,000 worth of iPods. It was all caught on camera.

David Pogue of The New York Times has posted notes from his “iPod Dynasty” panel at CES. The panel consisted of Apple rivals including executives from Real and Yahoo Music.

Don’t forget that Google is using its own DRM for the videos.

Dammit, do we really need *three kinds of DRM*???

Google Video Store!  Bye, bye, iTMS!

* At least as far as video goes.

Check the prices for the videos for sale.  Some of the movies are more expensive than a DVD!  And there are only 5 music videos to purchase!  I’ll wait and see.

At this point in time, the Google Video Store is hardly a threat to Apple’s dominance.  Besides, I’m sure SJ has something up his sleeve coming up on Tuesday anyway.

So what players will handle their DRM content? I didn’t see anything listed on their press release page. All I read is that their free vids would work on the 5G and PSP, which actually is quite good. EVERYONE should have Evilhoof and Flayed’s hilarious WOW ‘Internet is for Porn’ on their iPod.

Someday I’ve got to make it to NYC just to see that Broadway show…

Well, Google CLAIMS that their freebie vid content can be played on an iPod…but right now it beats me on how to do it.

You can always try selecting the iPod Video option in the drop-down menu right beside “Download for”
