iTunes want: Send apps from the desktop store straight to a specific iOS device

There's a feature I would love to have from iTunes over and above everything else: the ability to send apps I buy on the desktop straight to a specific iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Ever had a time where you needed a refund for either an iTunes or App Store purchase? Whether you accidentally purchased something, got double billed, or have clever children that have figured out the art of in-app purchases, Apple does give you the ability to request refunds for any kind of...
Shark Movies

Sharknado might be sucktastic, but here are some great iTunes shark movies to chomp on!

So, apparently something called Sharknado happened last night on SyFy and it has the Internets ablaze. It's a straight-to-TV shark flick starring Ian Ziering and Tara Reid – needing the work, possibly? – that sees a massive tornado that hits Los Angeles throwing a ton of huge, vicious sharks in...

Desktop iTunes apps

In the age of iCloud, does Apple need to maintain a monstrous iTunes?

We get seven apps on iOS 6 to take care of iTunes, isn't it time Apple broke it apart on the desktop as well? Breaking up iTunes is Peter Cohen's number one want for OS X 10.9. He's probably not alone on that front, I myself went as far as saying I'd love to see the Podcasts app broken away...

iRadio: Apple could do streaming really well, but they don't have to do it at all

The problem with iTunes and Windows 8

According to the chief financial officer of Windows -- what, your company doesn't have a product-level CFO? -- Microsoft has laid out the welcome mat for iTunes for Windows 8, but Apple has yet to come a knocking. Why ever could that be? I was asked recently on Twitter why the Mac App Store wasn...
