YouTube will soon allow users to view videos sans Internet connection. Google briefly announced the feature in a recent blog post but a more recent memo issued to YouTube strategic partners sheds a bit more light on the subject.

Nice idea, if nothing more than to allow me to watch a video without it pausing every 3 seconds as it streams. Hopefully, I can request the video and get a notification when the video has been downloaded and is ready to watch. Hopefully this feature will be available for desktop users as well. As I would classify watching an HD movie on a screen that I can hold in my hand to be self-inflicted punishment. Akin to surfing the internet on a 56k telephone line. Why even bother.
