Here is a possible reason for the upturn in stock prices:<br><br>[color:blue]DVD Deal Lets Films Go From Web to TV<br>By Dawn C. Chmielewski, Times Staff Writer<br>July 19, 2006<br><br>Hollywood studios will cross a significant technological and psychological frontier today when they offer the first downloadable movies that can be legally burned onto a DVD.<br><br>Four major studios struck a deal with online movie service CinemaNow Inc. to offer more than 100 mainstream titles that can be copied to a disc and played on almost any DVD player or television set. Prices will start at about $9 a movie.<br><br><br>The deal was hailed as a milestone in Internet distribution, giving film fans what they've long demanded: the convenience of downloading a movie and playing it on the living room TV.<br><br>Today's launch also previews a likely agreement between the major studios and Apple Computer Inc., which is expected to expand the offerings on its popular iTunes online store to include big-studio movies. Several studio executives Tuesday confirmed that they were holding talks with Apple but did not want to be named because of the sensitive nature of the discussions.<br><br>Apple declined to comment.<br><br>Coupled with the CinemaNow agreement, an Apple deal would cement the Internet as a viable film distribution vehicle. Although studios have offered online movies since 2002, fears over piracy have kept the films locked to computer hard drives or to discs that play only on a PC. That restriction has kept the market for legal movie downloads relatively limited.</font color=blue><br><br>
Shoot, did the stock market go to the ball game too? The stock was going through the roof then flat lined after I went to the game.<br><br>But the Sox win so it is hold on to your hat tomorrow.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Humm very interesting and possible.<br>I just don't think that the stock jump was because of a "what if" rather based on a good quarter , Nike+iPod reviews and Apples better expectations next quarter . Certainly this news does add some extra juice , still I hardly feel the Wall Street anal-list would bank on a what if ? After all they never been fair to Apple so why start now .<br><br>I wonder if this new downloading scheme burns "direct" to DVD bypassing the hard disc ? This is not downloading a iPod size movie "or" is Apple planing to make 200 gig drives as standard on every Mac ? <br><br>
