Mac Rumors – Notes From Today’s Showtime Event

From Mac Rumors:

As we begin to soak in today’s announcements, a few tidbits of note:

– In reference to ‘iTV’, Steve only said that “802.11” would be used for wireless communication. Currently, Apple employs 802.11g “Airport Extreme” in its products, but the lack of specificity may hint at an adoption of the upcoming 802.11n standard.

– Many users have noted the iTunes 7 standalone installer includes a greyed-out custom option for “iTunes Phone Driver”. It is not clear whether this driver is for the rumored iPhone or for already iTunes compatible phones from Motorola.

– To the delight of many existing 5G owners, iPod Software 1.2 (included with iTunes 7) will provide capability to playback the increased resolution of new iTunes TV Shows, Music Videos, and Movies. The technical specifications of the 5G had originally stated the maximum resolution for h264 playback as 320×240 px.

– iTunes 7 will confirm if you wish to re-download content, and has a backup utility for backing up your library. Also introduced is a feature called “skip count” which tells you how often you have skipped a song.
