Apple, sadly, hasn't seen fit to release iTunes Extras for the Apple TV, despite it being wickedly obvious that's where they'd be of the most value. Instead, if you like iTunes Extras and you want to watch them on your Apple TV and big screen HDTV as nature intended, you have to use this ridiculous workaround.

No Superbowl ad from Apple, but if you download 'Invisible' by U2 from iTunes today, Bank of America will give $1 to (RED)

Apple chose not to make a new Superbowl commercial this year, not to pay homage to the 30th anniversary of their iconic 1984 spot, but iTunes did team up with U2 and Bank of America to offer a $1 donation to the Product (RED) charity for every download today.

The #NewU2Song "Invisible" is here. For 24 hours, download "Invisible" free on iTunes to help (RED) in the fight against AIDS. (Expires 2/3 @ 11:59 ET).

If you want the song, and want to help, act fast.

Apple reportedly interested in handling mobile payments — Would you use iTunes over Paypal or Square?

Rumors of Apple getting into the mobile payments business have circulated for years. They have half a billion people registered with iTunes, almost as many iPhones and iPads in the market, hundreds of millions of credit cards on file, they already handle mobile transaction at Apple Stores, and Passbook has been integrated into iOS since 2012 and iBeacons since 2013. The pieces are in place. Yet it remains a complicated business to get into. Douglas MacMillan and Daisuke Wakabayashi for the Wall Street Journal:

Horizontal vs. vertical lock-in: Until DRM dies, iTunes is no worse than Google or Amazon

Horizontal lock-ins are harder to see than vertical ones. When you buy a movie or TV show or book from iTunes, you know it'll only work on Apple devices. If you own anything else, all that content might as well be dead to you. When you buy a movie or TV show or book from Amazon or Google, however, it can feel like a safer investment, like you can play it anywhere and on anything. But it only seems that way. The truth is, you can only ever play your content on the devices the content and service provider — any provider — allows you to play them on, and only for as long as they allow it. We're just as locked to Google's will and servers, and Amazon's, and anyone else's. And we will be until such time as DRM (Digital Rights Management) is dead.

iTunes for iCloud: Could Apple media become ubiquitous on the web?

One of the headline features of WWDC 2013 - and of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks - was iWork in iCloud, a way to share, view, edit, and collaborate on Pages, Keynote, and Numbers documents on the web. It looks great, it works great, and most importantly, it allows Apple - without having to build or maintain separate native apps for each and every alternate platform on the market - to open up their productivity suite beyond iOS and OS X, to make it available to anyone and everyone who has a compatible browser. So, could they do the same thing with iTunes, and with their media suite of music, TV shows, movies, and books?
