YouTube, EMI and Apple are all over the news today, linked together in different stories. For your reading convenience, I’ll bring all those stories together.
YouTube + Apple = better Apple TV?
Google and Apple announced a deal yesterday to make YouTube clips available on Apple TV. Just yesterday, CNNMoney/Fortune magazine was taunting Apple TV’s failure. The YouTube deal called to mind one of the harshest indictments from CNNMoney/Fortune:
Apple TV’s most highly touted feature is its weakest one: It requires an HDTV, but the video you download is so low-res that it looks as fuzzy as plain old broadcast TV.
And now you can use your HDTV to watch even lower res YouTube videos. I’m sure that’s just the boost Apple TV needed.
