Dateline Hollywood has the best news about an iPod Video at Apple’s October 12th announcement:
The new device, along with the companion iMovies Store, will offer scenes from films for 99 cents each to download. â€œNo longer will big studios dictate that you buy a DVD with every scene from a film when only a few of them are good,â€ CEO Steve Jobs said. â€œiMovies even lets you create your own playlist with your favorite scenes from different films in any order you want.â€
The Wall Street Journal had reported earlier this month that the testing of the iPod Video had run into some problems.
â€œWe had one jogger during the beta phase who was completely gripped by a scene in â€˜Dodgeball,â€™â€ said Jobs. â€œUnfortunately, he was hit by a UPS truck. The iPod screen cracked. Since then, weâ€™ve made improvements to the iPod Video to make it sturdier to withstand such accidents. We learn valuable lessons from these tests.â€
