    The strike was basically about what kind of cut writers get out of online sales of their work.

    I wonder what kind of ramifications this has for Apple TV, and I wonder if that's what Apple was waiting for before the "Take 2" update.

    See, I'm sure someone else speculated on this before, but if the TV/Movie industry knew a deal was coming in the immediate timeframe, the delay would make sense.

    A further question would be "Why would this result in a delay for Apple?". If all the deal results in is a different royalty structure that would change prices, I wouldn't think Apple would have committed to the price structure cited at MacWorld and I don't think they would have held up a software release, because they could easily just change the prices in the iTunes store.

    So that leads to the question of if some new feature might make it's way into the update.
