You should have (if any interest) already noticed that I love Star Wars. Anyways, I am watching Clone Wars nowadays with great anticipation. I Liked it a lot. And since it is not originally airing in my country, I am watching it a day or two late by downloading and/or try to catch it on satellite or something like that every weekend. I don't like this a bit. So I decided to give iTunes a chance. I am strictly against Apple Products. But Star Wars can be a great mind changer for me. So I installed, so I got an account, so I bought an episode. Then what the #u##? Resolution is horrible, there are movie artifacts all over the video, it is like a VCD quality or something. Then I try to search it on the web a lil bit, dig some blog and forums. People usually say that it is not that bad (yea there may be something wrong with my "catching the details if it is about star wars" skills), thus I got the idea that something wrong with my settings maybe another software maybe just maybe hardware? I am not sure yet because I didn't have time to investigate if something's wrong with my settings. But at the moment I found it highly very unlikely. Because I have no other problems with any other codec. And I can watch pretty good ".mov" files. Still I'll try to figure it out, but I am keeping my hopes low profile :P for the moment. Anyways; after the video issues I also gave a try to radio services on iTunes. I didn't try it out in details but the result is: Last.Fm FTW once again! Last.Fm Last.Fm Last.FM!
