Everything you need to know about Apple's iTunes, including iTunes desktop software on Windows and Mac, iTunes Store on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and iTunes in the Cloud on iCloud

iTunes started off as Apple's desktop music player for Mac but has since become so much — perhaps too much! — more. iTunes on the desktop now runs on Mac and Windows, and in addition to playing your music, TV shows, Movies, podcasts, and more, also manages and syncs all of that, as well as apps and games, to your iOS devices via USB. The iTunes Store, which on the desktop includes the App Store and the iBookstore, is where you buy all your content. And if you're using iCloud, it's where you re-download iTunes in the Cloud, and manage iTunes Match.

Happy Birthday iTunes!

The iPhone comes in 8GB and 16GB. That's a lot of capacity fill. And where do we get content enough to fill that capacity? No, not the torrentz (JAR!) -- iTunes!

5 years ago, Apple realized that if they wanted to sell iPods, they needed to give people stuff to load onto those iPods. Now, what originally began as a Mac-only 200,000 song sparkle in the eye of Steve Jobs, has grown into the cross-platform (except for Linux!), multi-billion track served (some even DRM-free!), #1 music retailer, not to mention the foundation pillar of podcasts, with nearly a gazillion free audio (including our very own Phone Different Podcast!) and video programs there for the downloading.

Happy birthday, iTunes. And here's to many more.

iPhone 2.0: iTunes iController?

One of the features I most want for the iPhone is the ability to use it as a Wi-Fi remote for iTunes (and related services like Front Row or the Apple TV). Sitting back, multi-touch flicking through lists of content, finding something interesting, tapping, and -- boom -- having it "just work" on my TV or Mac would be Jobsian perfection.

Well, if TUAW's latest rumor pans out, Apple may be about to deliver, well... not exactly that, but something just as cool:

UPDATED! OMG Appz Store Leaked?!1

The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) is running some screen shots of what may well be our first glimpse of the iPhone's App Store.

Pretty much what you'd expect if you combined the Wi-Fi Music Store with apps, the shots came TUAW's way via a tipster. Seems said tipster claims that, after repeatedly stabbing away at the App Store button (does that mean he was running the SDK beta??) and failing to connect, lo and behold he got through.

UPDATE: iPhone l33t hax0r Erica Sadun went poking around the storeBag.xml from Apple's public iTunes server and found the following:

Rumor: Apple Considering All-You-Can-Eat Music Subscriptions?

People don't want to rent their music. So said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Of course, the Jobsinator also said people don't want to watch video on tiny iPod screens, and we see how far that got him...

So, while 100% unsubstantiated rumor at the moment, The Financial Times (via Apple Insider) is reporting a "tip off" that says Apple is now considering an unlimited music program similar to Nokia's "Comes With Music".

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 separate devices...

hmmm, perhaps I have watched that one too many times.

I do wonder why it is a Podcast though and not a "movie". I say this because the Podcasts do not refresh... we just get a new one every time.

You can find the link here to the Apple store for download, enjoy.

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 all had it happen: a friend makes us a mix CD and iTunes can't figure out what's what. Which "Track 2" was that again? Hassle.

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