We have been talking about radical changes in the way we watch for TV for almost a decade now. And a lot of it has been wrong. Remember the buzz three years ago as to how 3-D was going to be in every home? Newsflash: ESPN announced last week that it would be shutting down its 3-D channel by the end of the year because the audience, if there is one, is too small to be measured by Nielsen. But for all the hype and all the "next big things" that have flashed across the screen and died small, it really does feel like the revolution in TV viewing has arrived.

Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, is on stage in San Francisco talking about iPad stuff. I'm following Engadget and Gdgt blogs for live blogging, and I'll post key details here as they come. * Cook announces a new Apple TV, with 1080 (HD) capability. New user interface. Photo Stream support, meaning you take a pic with your iPhone and it automatically appears on your TV (through Apple TV). Also, you can generate Genius playlists off your movie choices in iTunes. * iPad: Cook says, via Gdgt: “We've sold almost 15.5 million iPads last quarter alone.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Now that it has conquered the online music business, Apple Inc. wants to do the same with online movie rentals. Apple announced at the opening of the Macworld Conference & Expo yesterday it will begin renting downloadable movies at its iTunes store for $2.99-$3.99. High-definition versions cost $3.99-$4.99. Users will have 24 hours to finish watching movies once they start. Apple also introduced what chief executive Steven P. Jobs said was the world's thinnest computer - a notebook PC that's only three-quarters of an inch at its thickest point and skinny enough to fit inside a manila interoffice envelope.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Its forthcoming iPhone might be getting all the attention, but Apple Inc. returned to its computer roots yesterday, showing off a new version of its PC operating system that emphasizes search and multimedia functions and promises to be easier to use than ever. At a conference for software developers here, Apple Chief Executive Officer Steven P. Jobs also announced moves aimed at boosting the reach and relevance of its Safari Internet browser. Apple released a beta version of Safari that can run on rival Microsoft Corp.

Although Steve Jobs announced in his keynote at the Macworld 2008 expo that 1,000 movies would be available for rental from the iTunes Store by the end of February, it didn't happen. In fact, the number of movies you can rent from iTunes is well below half that number. Last week I checked the "all rentals" box on the iTunes Store and got just 287 items, although a power search with the "Search movies available for rental" box checked turned up 436 films. Many in the blogosphere have hammered Apple for what some are calling a broken promise.

With just days to go before Steve Jobs takes the stage in San Francisco for his annual Macworld keynote, the Mac universe is abuzz with the usual rumors and speculation. Regulations governing Apple pundits require that I contribute to the collective cacophony or forfeit my license to blog on Apple. In that spirit, here's my take on what might be coming - or not - on Tuesday: Office for the Mac 2008 Craig Eisler, the new general manager of Microsoft's Mac Business Unit, will join Steve onstage to introduce Office for Mac 2008.

Apple is expected to unveil the latest version of its category-busting tablet computer, the iPad, today at a product launch in California, starting at 1 p.m. EST. in San Francisco . Various reports say Apple will not call it the iPad 3, but rather: the iPad HD, presumably to signify the improved screen resolution. The iPad has been a smash success for Apple, paving the way for a new class of "PC" products that are in some ways better than laptops (at least per this CNET article .)

Safari for Windows was THE bombshell of Steve Jobs' keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco earlier this week. While Jobs explained the move by talking about his desire to increase Safari's share of Web browsers, there must be more to it than that. As most everyone knows, Web browsers are given away free. Apple has invested some of its limited resources to create a Windows-compatible browser that will generate exactly $0 in revenue and will serve to annoy the restless, competitive giant that is Microsoft.

People visiting the iTunes Store customer feedback page have reported seeing references to a "RentalMovie" category, according to Forbes.com. This could well mean we'll see rental movies at the iTunes Store very soon. Usually slip-ups like this foreshadow a formal announcement from Apple within days. As far back as June, FT.com had reported that Apple was in talks with several major Hollywood studios about offering 30-day movie rentals for $2.99. The iTunes Store currently sells movies for $14.99.
