Cramer on Stewart: Was Important to Say AT&T and Verizon Disliked iPhone, Wouldn't be Ready for Macworld

In one of the most remarkable inside-media interviews in recent memory, CNBC's Jim Cramer sat down with the Daily Show's Jon Stewart, and was made manifest for his network and industry's failures (according to Stewart) to properly fulfill their mandate as the 5th estate and pillar of democratic systems, and expose for their audiences the lies and deceptions that those in positions of power would perpetrate on them (and us).

iTunes 8.1 DJ + Apple Remote for iPhone = Party 2.0?

One of the new features in Apple's iTunes 8.1, released just today, is iTunes DJ. Replacing the old Party Shuffle atop the Playlists heap, it also integrates with the Apple Remote app for the iPhone for shiny party goodness.

How does it work? At first look, anyone at your party with the Apple Remote app can request songs from your iTunes library, and everyone with the app can vote for which song gets played when. Genius seems to work with it as well.

Jeremy was kind enough to grab us some screenshots, after the break! If you've given it a go already, let us know if you've found anything else in there!
