While it may not have been "a day to remember" for some, the announcement of The Beatles' catalogue on iTunes has apparently had some effect. After only one week, Apple sold 450,000 albums and 2 million songs of all things Fab Four!
We brought it to you yesterday about something being in the air as far as a potential collaboration between News Corp and Apple in regard to a iPad news app. This seems to be gaining some traction as a new report has the app set to be revealed on December 9.
Whenever somebody sends me a link to an album in the iTunes Store or an app from the App Store, Safari launches and shows me all the information in a webpage with reviews and song previews and everything. But then iTunes automatically launches and shows me the exact same information! How do I stop Safari from auto-launching iTunes?
46 years ago, four lads from Liverpool came to America and the music industry has never been the same. Flash forward to today, and The Beatles have finally landed on iTunes -- and taken over most of Apple’s website as well.
Apple generally loves to spring new stuff upon an unsuspecting world on the second weekday, and this Tuesday promises to be no exception. But rather than a nifty new gadget that requires a trip to the Apple Store, the company has cleverly slipped a preview of an iTunes-related “exciting announcement” onto their website. What could it be?
Apple’s music-themed social network, Ping, has been something of a red-haired stepchild since its September 1 debut, but the feature is at least now available to iPad users at long last, no software update or app download required.
With the announcement of Ping integration with Twitter, Apple seems to be stepping more and more into the web arena with their products. So, it's no wonder that they would purchase the iTun.es domain name. But, what could it be used for? We hope an iTunes URL shortening service.
