Gruber on the Keynote

John Gruber writes :

But, on the other hand, if Apple is charging for the iPod Touch upgrade to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley, why is the Apple TV upgrade free? As far as I know, they’re not accounting for Apple TV sales on a subscription basis. I’m left with the feeling that they’re charging $20 for the iPod Touch upgrade simply because they can.

Actually I think Apple did say that they would account for AppleTV revenue on a subscription model – it was one of things that made me realize there would be new features for it, and one of the reasons I was happy to purchase. Unfortunately I cannot now find a reference for that statement.

Also if you’ve not watched Randy Newman’s post keynote performance, you really should – he may be getting old, but he’s still great.
