  1. TODAY is the test…low budget Made for TV movies will sell in low volumes. Perfect for ironing out any issues.

    Had Apple announced a Netflix catalog of first run movies, any issues with their delivery system could jepardize the entire project. This is a smart move by Apple.

    …on the other hand…I am ready for some real movies!

  2. Memorable quotes from “High School Musical”:

    Martha Cox: Hip hop is my passion! I love to pop, and lock, and jam, and break!
    Brainiac #1: Is that even legal?!?
    Brainiacs: Not another peep!
    Martha Cox: It’s just dancing. Sometimes I think it’s better than homework.
    Sharpay: We need to save our show from people who don’t know the difference between a Tony Award and Tony Hawk.
    Gabrilla Montez: When I’m singing with you, I just feel like…a girl.
    Troy Bolton: You even look like one, too.
    Chad: I smell a rat named Darbus.

    And I smell an Emmy. Just brilliant.

  3. this is pretty big ….

    my 8 year old daughter really wants this, and I would buy any format that is the first release (and i know there are many others out there)

    itunes has the first release !

    major success for apple

    i predict a lot of dl’s

  4. This has to be some kind of priviledges issue because there is no links what so ever from the iTunes Music store homepage or from TV shows or Short films… The only way to get to this page is from the link above…
