    If true, good catch, and a bit of a disappointment iTunes 8 isn't coming...

    Photo evidence please :)

    Cool :) (in regards the iTunes update), but sad that you actually spent money on that piece of misery known as "family Guy." :(

    What!! Family Guy could be one of the greatest shows of all time! It picked up where The Simpsons left off when they tanked, and has surpassed its comedic wit easily! :eek:

    Interesting... wonder if this is somehow related to the reason why iTunes won't let me buy all of the season 6 episodes (reports that item is currently being modified and is not available)...

    Very true, but I would guess that they would have to have an impressive visual change or feature (other than accomodating new hardware or new type of product in the iTMS) to warrant a new number release. I can't really imagine what else they could do to iTunes. Certainly not much more visually- my work computer can barely handle cover flow, and its relatively new.

    The Order of the Phoenix DVD has a code for a digital download for 'Your computer and personal video player".

    Small print at the bottom says "not available for Mac OS X or iPod devices" :rolleyes:

    IMO Family Guy is indeed the rightful successor to the Simpsons show, but not in a good way.

    The Simpsons started getting bad when they began to go way to far into micro-second "fantasy interludes" and dropped any pretense of internal logic, realism, and character and situation driven story-lines. It quickly descended into the worst kind of drivel, and became sort of an illustrated version of a bad stand up routine from some third-rate Vegas bar.

    Family Guy takes that shift and runs it out of the park with it. They also add a generous helping of cruel, nasty, negativity on top.

    As dumb as some of the later episodes are, at least Homer Simpson is at the bottom of it all, a good person with a heart. There isn't a single character on Family Guy that actually is a "good person" with the exception of the dog, Brian. Even he is constantly being set-up into situations where he has to lie, cheat, or do some other nasty thing so that he won't seem like he's better than the rest of the reprobates on the show.

    The "message" of Family Guy (such as it is), is that we are all shallow, cruel and selfish people and it's humour comes from a very uncool, relishing of that fact. Whomever writes it must have a particularly cruel bent, and an almost hopeless view of humanity in general. I'm betting that he used to pull wings off of flies as a child. ;)

    IMO, if you are the kind of person that laughs out loud at "America's Funniest Videos" when a baby bashes it's head on the sharp edge of a coffee table, then you will find Family Guy hilarious.

    Well, it is a Fox DVD and they have allegedly agreed to do this. However, I'm with Billabong, pictures or it didn't happen.

    Nice. Though I doubt they include anything big. It's been quite some time since the last big update.

    Are you kidding? Watching old Simpsons episodes, I can see exactly where Family Guy got most of their ideas, and frankly I don't find the show funny. It would be fine if they didn't overuse their non sequiturs, "dumb" humor, sexism, etc, but the writers apparently don't know when they're going over funny and onto annoying.

    And to the OP, what happens when you click the Update button?

    Fox DVDs To Include iTunes Compatible Digital Copies?


    MacRumors reader mr echo received an early copy of a Family Guy DVD intended for release January 15th and discovered an included iTunes/iPod compatible digital copy.

    Previously, digital copies included with DVDs were encoded in protected Windows Media format, making them incompatible with the iPod or iPhone. However, indications are that both WMV and H.264 (iPod/iPhone compatible) digital copies will be distributed.

    Including a digital copy on the DVD makes ripping the DVD for use with portable media players largely unnecessary, although the files are likely to contain digital rights management.

    The H.264 copies reportedly require iTunes 7.6, which isn't yet available. However, we had previously heard that iTunes and QuickTime updates would be coming by Macworld.

    The whole reason I buy movies on iTunes is so I don't have to deal with a physical disc that I have to find room to store. This seems pointless to me, surely you won't be able to copy the digital version off the DVD an unlimited number of times? If you could it would just result in rampant piracy of the digital version.

    You have an access code to download the file once.

    Since FOX is one of the studios supporting iTunes Store video rentals, it stands to reason they would launch DVDs with digital content that works on the Mac.
