Richard Allan suggests that Anthony Rose's post about BBCiPlayer on the iPhone fulfills the BBC's public purpose to "promote education".

I'm not sure I'd go that far, but it's clear that readers of this blog have an appetite for "behind the scenes" material and I'll do my best to try and get you more. Thanks for the positive response both in the comments and elsewhere.

However, Webometric Thoughts wonders whether the BBC has fallen for Apple's hype. Rory Cellan Jones clearly hasn't.

Regarding Cory Doctorow's post on BoingBoing, BBC Drops DRM From iPlayer Video On Demand Service: I've posted a brief comment here and hope to have a fuller response from Anthony in the next couple of days.
