Ah, the moment many of us have been waiting for; DRM free songs and music videos on iTunes. Of course, for me this is a little too late. When I had a PSP, this would have been really useful. But now, with the iPhone and iPod Touch, it doesn't really matter to me anymore. What do you guys think? Are you putting your music and videos on other devices outside of the Apple ecosystem? Look forward to a post very soon about upgrading your library to iTunes+!
There have been time, albeit not many, but times none-the-less where I wanted to download a song into my iTunes library over the air (OTA). Now, I can with Macworld's recent announcement of OTA downloads. My biggest issue with this now is that I would prefer to keep my 128kps encoding, 256kps makes the files just too big! Apple, give me an option! So, instead I am working on an Automator workflow to auto-convert my songs when they are synced over.
That is right! Now those killer slideshows you create in iPhone '09 now can sync over to iPhone. That is cool! These slideshows are cool!

I love Palm almost as much as I love Apple. But I have to admit, I am a bit disappointed of the blatant rip offs the iPhone Slider, err, I mean Palm Pre makes. Multi-touch, GPS, 8GB, proximity sensor, accelerometer, hmm, sound familiar?
Well, that is what the Internets are a' sayin'! iPhone 3.0 will support Quad-Core Processors are on their way! What does this mean? Well, it means wicked fast HD capable iPhones! Not to mention what it will mean for iPhone gaming...

Oh man, I really hope this is true! If it is, sign me up! This is much more agreeable compared to the rumored price os $30 a month! This will be so helpful for me when I am not near Wi-Fi (which believe it or not, is quite often! Not all of us live in San Francisco or New York City!).
