iTunes movies are too expensive

I love iTunes, and I use it on my Mac and PC for managing my music. I recently rented a movie from iTunes just to check out the technology. It was pretty slick as I downloaded a movie before a long flight and watched it during my flight. I paid $3.99 for the download even though I thought that was a little high for a movie rental. $2.99 seems more like it to me.

The movie played fine and the near-DVD quality that Apple promised was okay. I thought I could purchase some movies but was shocked to see the $14.99 price that Apple charges. I think this is simply too much for a download. I can purchase DVDs for $10-$12 most times, and you get the DVD with inserts. To charge the same price for a lower quality file, and have no backup DVD is just ridiculous. I say Apple is too proud of themselves and I won't be buying from them until they lower the prices. I suggest others do the same.

Sarah Palin - Only time will tell

I have to admit to being very disappointed yesterday at McCain's VP pick. I wanted someone with the stature of Colin Powell and thought the pick of Palin was a purely political pick. However, the more I find out about her the more I like her. She does have executive experience and is apparently scrappy and tough.

Only time will tell if this is a good pick for McCain so I'll hold further judgement for awhile.

Draft Colin Powell for McCain's VP

Multiple stories have come out in the last few days about the possibility of Colin Powell being McCain's VP. Unfortunately, the stories are probably bogus. I wish they were true because Powell is about the only individual that could add so much gravitas to McCain's ticket, that it would offset the celebrity of Obama. Powell could have been the president in any of the last 3 elections if he wanted it. Unfortunately, he just doesn't want to hold elective office.

Someone please convince Powell to accept a VP position with McCain. We need him.
