A duet with Siri on the iPhone 4S [video]

Jonathan Mann has put together a duet with none other than iPhone 4S assistant Siri. Jonathan is a musician and songwriter who is currently writing one song a day and has been doing it for over 1000 days.

This song is all about Siri, in fact it is a full on duet, with Siri taking its part in the lyrics. Check it out in the video below and let us know what you think. Will Siri just be an assistant forever or do you see a career in the music business?

90 second iTunes previews starting to roll out internationally

IThe new, longer 90 second iTunes music previews seem to be finally rolling out internationally. They aren't available on all songs yet, and it seems hit in miss in my testing in the Canadian iTunes Store, so whether you'll get them or not, but at least some songs are going the full 90 seconds.

After a November 2010 notification to record labels Apple originally switched to 90 second previews in the US back in December of last year. Why it took that email so long to reach beyond American borders is unknown, as is how long it will take to fully roll out now that it has begun.

In an effort to crowd source this, let us know if you're seeing the 90 second previews, what country you're in, and whether or not the 90 second previews are everywhere or just on a few songs.
