So I was pondering movie download services today and thinking about what I think a lot of the analysts miss when making comparisons of streaming devices. Everyone points to XBox 360 and how it can play Netflix, or Vudu with its 1080 streaming service, but I think they miss one of the biggest advantages of the Apple approach: you get to take your media with you on your iPod! I don't know of any other system which handles portable devices elegantly (some players like the Zune are technically capable, but awkward in practice). I wonder, however, how many people take advantage of the capability. I personally watch TV shows on the train ride to work at times and we plan to take movies with us for my baby daughters to watch on the Thanksgiving plane ride, but how many others out there utilize that capability?
