iTunes Turns 5, Vibrating iPhone Rumors and Safari Security Issue Found

 

Happy Birthday iTunes: Five years ago iTunes went from just playing our music, to becoming the largest wallet vacuum on the internet. Apple has sold over 4 billion songs in the last five years. The Mac|Life editors share their first iTunes purchase:

 

Senior Editor Susie Ochs: We Can Work It Out - Stevie Wonder featuring The Jackson Five
Managing Editor Jan Hughes: The Dead Milkmen - Punk Rock Girl
Online Editor Roberto Baldwin - They Might Be Giants - Flood

Art Director Robin Dick - Marvin Gaye - Sexual Healing

 

Share your first iTunes purchase in the comments below.

 

Haptic iPhone rumor: Apple is reportedly in talks with the Immersion Corporation to license the company's haptic technology for the next iPhone. Haptic technology simulates a tactile feel on flat surfaces by sending out mini vibrations. The report comes from Palluxo! who cite the usual, anonymous Apple employee, who told the site that senior executives from the companies have met to discuss an agreement.

 

New SDK allows backstage parties?: The latest SDK has some interesting bits inside. TUAW readers may have stumbled upon information that would allow background apps on the iPhone. That's good news for IM clients.

 

Another Safari security flaw: After Apple released an updated, more secure, Safari, the security researchers wasted no time in putting the browser to the test. The latest find, a URL spoofing flaw.

With all of the money I've saved buying my music from Amazon, I was able to buy an Shuffle to play the songs. All those dimes really add up, and the songs have no DRM !

Green Day's cover of "I Fought the Law" :)

I bought it partly b/c it was the song Apple used for their fist iTunes promotions. And I'm an old school Green Day fan.

"I Need Your Love" by Boston. I'd been looking for that song on the "free" sites and could never find it. This song turned me legit. Way to go iTunes. Thanks for keeping me out of jail.
