Rumor: Game Rentals & Blu-ray Headed To Apple?
According to AppleInsider, it looks like Apple is actively seeking slot-loading Blu-ray drives from Sony for use with the MacBook Pro line. In addition to that rumor, it also looks like they may be looking into game rental as another form of income. I’d go ahead and file this rumor as probable, considering the MacBook Pro is the choice system among many audio-visual professionals including myself. It would only make sense for them to add Blu-ray to the setup.
A recently published patent filing from Apple Inc. hints at the possibility of game rentals and a more advanced games management component of the iTunes Store. Meanwhile, readers question the disappearance of Safari’s anti-phishing measures. And the power-draw of today’s Blu-ray drives has thus far translated into slow adoption by notebook manufacturers.
