    Good Morning –

    One more question or tip regarding upgrading movie to 1080p. I was excited about upgrading my movie collection to the higher definition following listening to the initial show. Selected a few movies not all and began purchasing/downloading the new format. The dialogue screen did acknowledge I had already purchased these movies so I thought all was great. to my surprise the next day I received a receipt from iTunes showing I have paid for these downloads. Submitted a ticket and below is their response:
    Welcome to iTunes Store Customer Support. I am Nisanth. I am glad to assist you.

    “I understand that you have been charged for the movies which you have already purchased in past. I know how eager you are to know the reason for this and I will surely provide you the detailed information.

    Enrique, please be informed that you might have purchased SD movies in past and the charges differ for Sd version and HD version. This might be the reason why you have been charged again.

    When you buy an HD-quality video on the iTunes Store, you’ll receive two files: the HD-quality version and the standard-definition version. When you sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iTunes, only the standard-definition version will transfer to your device. (iPhone 4 and iPad can play the HD version of the video.)

    HD-quality video will have 720p and 1080p resolution and many will have 5.1-channel Dolby Digital surround-sound audio, designed to work with Apple TV, iPhone 4 and later, and iPad.

    You can view the HD-quality version of the video in iTunes or you can stream or sync it to Apple TV for viewing on your widescreen TV.”

    Does this appear correct? Also note the comment regarding the two formats from a single purchase/download. Actually thought that would justify the purchase. Your thoughts?

    Enjoy the show

    One comment I thought I would make about the new colors for the 5c is Apple seems to really love the pastel colors and seems to be marketing more towards female consumers. I feel they should offer more masculine colors, such as a navy blue, burgundy, dark green, etc. These pastel colors do not appeal to me at all and the only one I would consider would be the white phone.

    Just my two cents worth …. love the podcast! Keep up the good work!
