iTunes 8 to bring HD TV downloads According to Digg.com admin Kevin Rose, the upcoming iTunes 8 will be the first of the platform to allow for HD TV show purchases.
The upgrade notes say users will have the option of downloading TV shows in "HD quality," marking the first time shows will be available in such a form outside of Apple TV.

The leaked excerpt also confirms rumors that have been swirling around for weeks, that a second-generation iPod touch, a 4G iPod Nano and a second-generation iPod classic will be coming soon and will be fully syncable with iTunes 8.

Another notable update would be a "recommendation system" called Genius which will "automatically create playlists based on songs the software believes 'go great together'." The platform would also recommend purchases from the iTunes Store based on your played songs.

Great minus one problem..

Most imac's and intel mac mini's cannot support hd content.

So unless you have a 3,000 pro tower from apple this only helps out windows users.

Something else you can't do with an apple product using your mac?

LOL, I hope thats not true. I thought the commercials said it was impossible to do anything involving movies, music and photos on a Windows computer...
