Calling all Rush superfans! Apple has posted
two new GarageBand Arist Lessons from famed Rush guitarist Alex
Lifeson. The first song available is “Working Man," followed by “The
Spirit of Radio.” Each lesson costs $4.99 and is available in the
GarageBand Lesson Store.
Apple began shipping its new line of high-performance 27-inch iMacs,
which are powered with Intel quad-core processors. Those who ordered
the machines in October can expect their new systems to arrive on their
doorstep any day now.
The possibility that Apple might at
long last break its exclusivity with AT&T has been a dream ever
since the iPhone launched. The carrier has developed its own particular
brand of fail with service limitations (MMS, tethering), app
heavy-handedness (reputedly being behind Google Voice getting yanked)
and dropped call records broken daily.
Yet publicly both Apple
and AT&T have denied any rumors of a split and Cupertino even gave
the carrier a one year extension. Rumors continued to proliferate that
Apple was ready to jump ship for Verizon or at least to open up the
handset to other carriers. If new leaks are to be believed, there might
be some truth in this.
Apple’s iPhone Developer Program has rejected an app that allows people to contact their elected U.S. senators and representatives because the app “ridicules public figures,” according to a rejection letter posted by the artist.
AT&T is suing Verizon over its "There's a map for That" ad campaign, but that hasn't stopped Verizon from using the same Verizon vs. AT&T image map of 3G coverage in the U.S. in new holiday advertising.
