This news is a couple of weeks old and I'm not really sure how I missed it. But thankfully my pal David, who has a great personal travel blog called Upright & Stowed, did catch it. According to the New York Times:
Airline passengers will soon be able to connect their iPods to in-flight entertainment systems and watch their favorite videos while traveling on any of six major carriers, the iPod maker Apple Computer said yesterday. Air France, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, KLM and the United Airlines unit of the UAL Corporation will begin offering passengers iPod seat connections, which power and charge iPods during flight and allow video on the devices to be viewed on seat-back displays. The service will begin in the middle of next year. Other terms of the deals were not disclosed. Apple said it was working on introducing the iPod service on other airlines.
This is great news for anyone who has ever stressed out about having enough iPod juice to get them to their destination. Ok, it's great news for me because I always stress that I won't have enough iPod juice to get me to my destination.
Somehow, the world seems a much better place right now.
