Take me out to the iTunes Store

Part of Steve Jobs' elaborate plan to take over your life.

'I'm going to take over your whooooole life!'

Well, the NCAA tournament is winding to a close, which means that it must be just about time for baseball season. And because Steve Jobs is eager to take over your whole life, including your sports-watching experiences, you're going to be able to get your MLB fix at the iTunes Store this season. Apple will be selling 25-minute daily recaps of the season for $1.99 (or $7.99 for a month's worth) and two featured full-length games each week, also for $1.99 (or $19.99 for a "season pass"). A selection of "classic" baseball games will be sold as well. If you want to check it out, there's a 2007 season preview being offered for free.

So now you will be able to download a baseball game onto your MacBook, stream it to your AppleTV, and then call your friends on your iPhone (June 11th, baby!) to whine about A-Rod.
