    The Wall Street Journal (paid subscription required) claims that CEO Steve Jobs may announce today the availability of Paramount Pictures' catalog, which includes titles such as "Forrest Gump," "Mission: Impossible," and "Star Trek." However, it does not appear as though new releases would be included in the deal (yet).

    Oh, I'm sure we've missed some stuff. For instance, we haven't gotten ANY reliable recon on any Mac stuff. I guarantee you an iMac or something is going to be updated today :)

    Seems a bit dumb if new releases aren't included in the deal...

    I am excited about what The Wall Street Journal and the rest of us don't yet know.

    I am getting my hopes up for one big surprise! And it's only hours away :)

    But we won't know what we hit or missed for another three hours. Who knows maybe they won't preview iWork '07, of course then again maybe Bill Gates will come on stage and announce they just aquired Apple, and Microsoft is indeed the leader in the Digital Music Player Market ahead of schedule, and Vista will be delayed for the consumers for another month due to critical updates.

    Of course I could have avoided MacRumors, ThinkSecret, Macintouch etc if I had wanted everything to be a surprise. ;-)

    The speculation is part of the fun for me. :)

    Cool if true. We need more content that is not Disney! Nothing wrong with the house of mouse it's just more content means drawing more folks. I am waiting to pick up a refurbed video iPod so it draws closer.

    I think the phone may be a red herring (for the moment). the iTV and the film thing in iTunes may be the big announcement.

    That coupled with new iPod video (to watch those films) could be the whole push.

    The iPod video (6G) will have wifi though so it's a wifi capable phone too. :)


    ....3 hours to go!

    If the iTV (or whatever ) is going to take off, it will need more content than just Disney titles

    I really hope so, I'm getting a bit fed up of half the announcements/rumours only applying to the US. Cingular phone, movies on demand etc. I want my iphone!

    Sounds like a smart choice for Paramount. Get more money from the catalog while not pissing off the retail channels too much. :rolleyes:
