Reminder: .Mac HomePage goes buh-bye in November

Reminder: .Mac HomePage goes buh-bye in November

Apple has sent out a reminder to MobileMe members who subscribed back in the old .Mac days and used HomePage to publish content to the web.

The short version is, after November 8 you'll no longer be able to view those pages though the content will remain in your iDisk and can be reused in things like MobileMe Gallery, or republished via the iWeb app. (Or who knows, maybe something even more interesting when/if iLife '11 is announced).

For the long version, follow after the break.

And we can't help but ask -- was anyone still using HomePage anyway?

Apple working on music subscriptions again/finally?

Apple working on music subscriptions again/finally?

Is Apple finally (or once again) working on a music subscription service like Napster, Rhapsody, and Zune Pass? The New York Post thinks so:

Apple is talking with the major record labels about a subscription music service that would give customers unlimited access to songs for a monthly fee, sources told The Post.

One source said the service could have tiered pricing ranging from $10 to $15, although there are issues to be ironed out, including how much music would be included in each tier and how long consumers would be able to access that content.

The labels are rumored to be supportive of the idea, or of any idea that will jumpstart sagging music sales.

And yes, it's ironic we're running this story right after the post about Apple potentially

Is Apple trying to block Spotify streaming music in the US?

Is Apple trying to block popular European streaming music service Spotify's US launch? In addition to labels being uncertain as to Spotify's business model, it's ability to monetize, and the future of ad-supported music, CNET is reporting:

In meetings in Los Angeles recently, Apple executives told their music industry counterparts that they had serious doubts about whether Spotify's business model could ever generate significant revenues or profits, according to two sources with knowledge of the discussions.

Microsoft and Adobe holding secret anti-Apple meetings?

Microsoft and Adobe holding secret anti-Apple meetings?

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer snuck into Adobe to talk with their CEO, Shantanu Narayen, about how they could team up, cartoon villain-style, to take on the growing mobile power of Apple and one Steven P. Jobs. the NYT Bits blog says:

The meeting, which lasted more than an hour, covered a number of topics, but one of the main thrusts of the discussion was Apple and its control of the mobile phone market and how the two companies could team up in the battle against Apple. A possible acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft were among the options.

iPad originally had 2 dock ports, portrait and landscape?

iPad originally had 2 dock ports, portrait and landscape?

A picture circulating the internet, while not a glimpse at iPad 2 future, turns out to be a glimpse of current iPad past -- an idea Apple might have turned away from at literally the last minute according to Engadget's Joshua Topolsky:

According to a trusted Engadget source, what the image actually shows is a rejected concept from the current generation iPad. The story goes that originally there had been plans to feature two dock connections, but close to the last minute a design decision was made to kill the landscape port.

Given how much Apple dislikes ports or buttons or anything that interferes with their clean, crisp lines, I'm not surprised it went and doubt anything so "ambidockular" will return, but would you have wanted it?

UPDATED: Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak announced! [Jailbreak]

UPDATED: Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak announced! [Jailbreak]

Moments ago, prominent Chronic Dev Team member Joshua Hill (p0sixninja) announced via twitter that "Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM." This hotly anticipated Jailbreak should bring another large contingent into the Jailbreaking community as many new iPhone users who have not been able to jailbreak 4.0.2 and 4.1 will now be able to jailbreak their device.

While details of the jailbreak, such as whether it will be tethered or how it will be implemented have not been announced, that information will likely be given shortly... As a reminder, it is a good idea to save your SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella if you have not already done so.
