Apple TV Moves up a Notch?

Lost in the news that Apple Inc. finally reached $200/share last week was an important item concerning my favorite Apple product, the Apple TV. It looks as though there is going to be a big announcement in January covering movie download rentals. Here is the long lost content we have been craving. I hope the system will allow the conversion of a rental into a purchase should a particular movie warrant it. Bring it on!

Meanwhile media companies seem to be slowly but surely abandoning DRM. Apple has stated it wants to but has agreements in place with dinosaur record companies and film studios that force its hand. 2008 may be the year of the demise of DRM. But then again they said that about 2007!
