Greenpeace Much Pleased? Haters Still Hating on AppleTV While Lovers Still Loving iPhone, Indie Labels iTuning, and More

Greenpeace Love Hates MacBook Air: Apple, a company named after fruit, has finally staked its cool claim with the folks at Greenpeace. By making the MacBook Air as green as can be, as well as making the environmental impact of whatever is announced part of every announcement, Jobs and Apple have pleased the folks who have long been pushing for the “green PC.” Early reports indicate the planet is pleased. Later reports allege, however, that the exact opposite is true though and that Greenpeace is NOT pleased. Oh, we see. One of thoooosssseee relationships.

 

AppleTV? Meh.: No lesser journal of note than The Hollywood Reporter (and a few others like the NY Times it should be noted) are not buying all of the AppleTV hoohah. After an early knocking of Blockbuster stock, naysaying heads are speaking up. Balance is cool, but us? We’re still drinking the Kool and the Aid. And apparently are some hackers who are currently working on some native Skype apps for Apple TV.

 

iPhone Love: iPhone updates have the chattering class loving on it deeply and fully mostly on the occasion of the recently Mac Expo announced enhancements. Which seem to be seconded by, um, the world. O2 customer numbers are through the roof. And with the SDK soon coming? The roof will probably have to be raised.

 

The Indie World: DRM-free indie music, to the tune of 200 indie labels’ catalogs, is making its way to the iTunes Plus service. Which could help, probably won’t hurt.

 

What's Next?: Next week? Apple broadcasting Q1 earnings...ooooo, we almost can't wait.

 

Nothing Warm, Nothing Fuzzy here. Move along: And people still seem to be clucking about Steve's recent dismissing of a fan/reporter at Mac Expo to which we'd like to quote a line from Dr. Doolittle: "you want gratitude? Get a gerbil."

Its always great to get a reminder of how people with ADD's minds operate... discombobulated thoughts strung together.
Its taken me 5 minutes to write this comment, as so I can make sure other readers understand what I'm trying to say. Since you're obviously in the business of trying to communicate, I suggest you do the same... at least a paragraph break. and the balance comment, what in the world are you referring to?

[and yes, i have add too]

I don't have a TV right now, but I plan at some point to buy myself a fancy new LCD tv when Grand Theft Auto 4 comes out (so I'd be buying a PS3 as well) However I HATE normal television and refuse to shell out $50 per month for a service of which I only watch about 10 percent of it's content. This is due to the fact that I don't have a lot of time on my hands and most of the stuff on TV sucks.

So with the new ability to download/rent content right on the AppleTV box, it's the perfect solution to me. I whole heartedly embrace the new HD/wireless/disc-less age where I don't have to fill up my shelves with $60 season sets and movies, when I can just treat myself to the new weekly episode of Kyle XY for a mere $2.00. No Subscriptions, no contracts, no poor customer service line with the cable company... And with the price reduction on the AppleTV: Apple, good move.
