SDK Event: Now Available on iTunes

I love the fact that Apple gives us their events on iTunes! Believe it or not, I still watch the MacWorld 2007 video. I enjoying watching the part where Steve says: An iPod, Phone and an Internet communicator. iPod, Phone, and an Internet communicator. Are you getting it? These aren't three...

Tip: Fix your Tags in iTunes

Your iPhone does a better job displaying album and and sorting through all your music than any other device on the planet, past and present. However all that sweet, sweet music on that sweet, sweet interface doesn't do you much good if you don't know what exactly it is you're looking for. We've...

Apple TV 2: Rentals, HD Quality - FREE software upgrade and Price drop!

Jobs notes how everybody has tried and failed to get movies off the internet onto a widescreen TV. He admits that Apple TV was a miss as well, that people really want Movies, not an accessory for your computer. "Apple TV Take 2: No Computer Required." You can rent movies directly on Apple TV...
iTunes Movie Rentals Announced

iTunes Movie Rentals Announced

They've sold 4 Billion songs, 125 million TV shows, and 7 million movies. However, that 7 million mark is lower than they'd prefer. So today, Jobs has announced iTunes Movies Rentals. On board - every major movie studio! Steve presented them with a "and by the way." They will launch with...
Voice Memos?

Voice Memos?

A savvy forum user over at MacRumors found some interesting new dialog box messages inside the new version of iTunes. These are probably the highlights: "4320.082" = "The iPhone “^1” contains new voice memos. Would you like to move these voice memos to your iTunes library?"; "4320.073" = "...

iTunes 7.5 and Quicktime 7.3 Updates

While I was gone at CTIA, there's been a bunch of things that have happened that I didn't get time to properly write about. So today, we'll have a bit of an iPhone news smörgåsbord. There's been a fair amount of news, a fair amount of not-news, and some of the things that I've been reading are...

Most, but not yet all, iTunes Plus songs are now 99¢. Steve Jobs confirmed at the Wall Street Journal that the price drop was now in effect. I don't know yet if you can upgrade normal iTunes purchases to iTunes plus for free or whether you have to pay a slight fee to upgrade or if you have...
iTunes: A Challenger Appears

iTunes: A Challenger Appears

Universal unveils a new music subscription plan that involves a $5 per month subscription fee. Universal has Sony BMG and perhaps Warner on board, so that's 3 of the big 4. The notable absence is EMI, who has gone DRM-free. iPod Observer calls the plan novel, I don't think I'll be as kind....

Apple Quietly Responding to Amazon MP3?

Apple has started putting 99¢ DRM-free tracks on sale in iTunes. Usually, DRM free tracks are only available as purchases from iTunes plus and cost $1.29. Assuming this trend continues, I'm glad to see Apple iTunes moving aggressively against Amazon MP3.

iCrack: iTunes Wi-Fi Store Makes Music Purchase All Too Easy, Dangerously Addictive

With the release of firmware update 1.1.1 came something new to iPhone that I think may prove to be its most insidious feature yet; iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store. Now I know that many of you don't purchase music via iTunes, preferring instead to utilize certain ahem free source, but you may sing a...
Time Warner Building iTunes Competitor

Time Warner Building iTunes Competitor

Time Warner is building an iTunes competitor. You know, sometimes I get irked when I see websites use the word "competitor" so loosely. The geniuses at Time Warner Cable have had a long time to think about music and they've had a long time to watch Apple's iTunes and mirror its success. So,...

AT&T Developing iTunes Integration and Widget for OSX Users?

iPhone Shackles Users to Apple's Walled Garden

< p>As "iPhone euphoria" slowly wears off, replaced with sobering reality, some of iPhone's less shiny aspects are beginning to come into view. Wilmington North Corolina's StarNews (I didn't know they had newspapers in NC. Wonder if they have internets as well ;) ) pointed out the unfairness...
