Mix: Most-admired, AOL video, Flux, Murdoch

Fortune has named Apple to its list of the world’s top 10 most-admired companies. “Globally, innovation proved the key to success, with Apple’s iPod revenue launching the computer company straight into ninth place,? the magazine states.

AOL has announced that it plans this week to launch one of the largest free video services on the Internet. The ad-backed service, called In2TV, will offer vintage shows and short clips.

Flux, the first iPod film festival, has kicked off the viewing and voting process. “Visit our fest page to view, download, and vote for our winners! Entries from eleven countries, with something truly for everyone awaits you.”

News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch has warned the media that they must adapt to new technologies. “Newspapers will have to adapt as their readers demand news and sport on a variety of platforms—websites, iPods, mobile phone or laptops,” he said.

Talking out of both sides of your mouth again, eh, Rupe old boy?
