MacNotables #760: Jim Dalrymple on Instant Music Gratification, the NBC Situation and the iPod touch vs. iPhone

Jim Dalrymple
Jim Dalrymple of Macworld checks in following Apple’s music event to share his insights into the latest product announcements from Apple, as well as some current events and where it all fits into the big picture. Jim discusses the importance of Apple’s new Wi-Fi Music Store in a market that is moving increasingly to instant gratification, and compares and contrasts the new iPod touch with the iPhone. Jim and Chuck take a couple detours on the costs of the Mac platform vs. others and how to save money when purchasing a Mac, then come back on track to discuss NBC’s decision to leave the iTunes Store in favor of Amazon in this, “The Way It Should Be” edition of MacNotables.
