The Beatles Box Set on iTunes [gallery]

While reaction to the way in which Apple announced the Beatles coming to iTunes has been mixed to negative, the Beatles music on iTunes has been nothing short of best-selling. You can get singles for $1.29, albums for $12.99, or all 13 albums in the Box Set for $150.

I got my hands (and ears) on the box set so

Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch set to launch iPad newspaper?

Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Newcorp head Rupert Murdoch may just be ready to test the waters with an iPad (and tablet) only "newspaper" called The Daily:

The collaboration, which has been secretly under development in New York for several months, promises to be the world's first "newspaper" designed exclusively for new tablet-style computers such as Apple's iPad, with a launch planned for early next year.

Intended to combine "a tabloid sensibility with a broadsheet intelligence", the publication represents Murdoch's determination to push the newspaper business beyond the realm of print.

TiPb TV 2: Should you get an iPad for the holidays or wait for iPad 2?

TiPb TV 2: Should you get an iPad for the holidays or wait for iPad 2?

Should you buy and iPad now for the holidays or should you wait until early next year for iPad 2? That's an important question as gift giving season is upon us, and it's the topic for the second episode of our new, conversational video podcast, TiPb TV.

Rene and I discuss when we think iPad 2 will come out, what extra features it might have, if iPad 1 will stick around at a reduced price, and what value you'll get out of the current iPad for the next few months while you wait.

It's instant gratification vs. more later with a dose of Android Galaxy Tab and BlackBerry Playbook thrown in for good measure. So if you've been trying to decide between getting an iPad now -- for yourself or for that special someone -- or waiting for a -- maybe FaceTime equipped -- iPad 2 next year, check out TiPb TV and we'll help you make the best choice possible.

TJ Maxx sold $399 iPads at a loss. Good marketing, unhappy Apple?

We got word yesterday that TJ Maxx has been selling iPads for $399 ($350 if you apply for their credit card). That left a lot of us wondering how they were able to do this when authorized retailers such as Walmart, Best Buy, and Target are all stuck selling them at $499 and up.

European Carriers Not Happy about Apple's Proposed Built-In SIM

European carriers are reportedly warning Apple that if Apple goes ahead with plans for custom, built-in SIM cards for future generations of the iPhone. the carriers may refuse to subsidise the iPhone altogether.

The evidence comes in the form of a new private framework known as AppleAccounts.framework that includes a series of device-specific error messages referring to free MobileMe accounts. In particular, the error messages include alerts regarding having reached "the maximum number of free accounts" for a given device and certain devices not being "qualified for free MobileMe service".
