Booked a meeting room and spent most of the day locked inside reviewing documentation. No e-mail, no phone calls, no interruptions, no nothing.

Sheer bliss - easily the most productive day this year.

Some news I picked up before dinner:

iTunes has been bumped to version 4.8, and besides starting to subsume iSync where it relates to iPod data syncing (what happened to the "single sync interface" concept?) it has enhanced support for... video, which means Cringely got some of it right. As I pointed out myself, this will probably be the year of H.264, and an iTunes video store would be just the sort of thing for Apple to do. We'll see.

Update: They just got started selling videos. I don't expect them to start selling full-length movies, but TV series would make a killing.
