YouTube is coming to Apple TV. Middle of next month they say. The hard drives are getting bigger too – but that isn’t that important what with the incredible streaming job it does.
All this was announced today at D 2007. You can read the Engadget commentary here. I won’t bore you with the details – but do read every stinking word.
The truly geekly will notice that I added a YouTube category today. Until this point I really didn’t care because there were two audiences: those who watched on the computer and those who watched on the television.
YouTube.com now handles both audiences. Nobody else does it better. They call it “convergence.”
Everything changed today – and new media is better off for it. His/her voice cracked today in a first sign of puberty. I’ll stop with the analogies – but I hope you get what I’m saying.
Oh yeah, and there’s that whole new version of iTunes with non-drmed tunes as well.
It’s been a good day. I’m gonna eat me a steak tonight.
Tomorrow I start working, finally, on my YouTube strategy.
