It was a week of news for the big iPad, the little iPad, and even something as old as email made news this week. We've got more details on all of this plus a how-to, a rumor, a jailbreak announcement, and the competition floundering. Sounds like a pretty good week, all in all.
While iTunes 11 is running a little late, it is expected to drop on us this month. When it arrives, it will be the single biggest change to iTunes since the introduction of the iTunes Music Store. To prepare for this large update, you may want to prepare your iTunes library, adding album artwork, correcting album titles, and getting rid of duplicates. By cleaning up, you’ll have a better experience when iTunes 11 is released and installed on your Mac.
Not everyone is into belting out off-key ditties along to cheesy MIDI-blips in front of total strangers in a dark room, but you'd be surprised how many folks out there flock to karaoke for their late night kicks. Karaoke is practically a religion for some avid pub crawlers, and it's a staple of small town and big city nightlife alike. We've been bitten by the bug too, which is why we just had to compile this list of great apps for karaoke addicts. Grab some ear plugs and follow us!
We've had a few themed price drops lately, but this week there doesn't appear to be any overwhelming consistency, so we decided to bring you the best random price drops. It's a little of this and a little of that. A little something to share and to make your season bright.
Have you ever been frustrated while trying to buy new music, feeling that a 30-second song sample just wasn’t long enough to want to make you click “Buy”? Apparently Apple agrees, and at long last they’ve started rolling out 90-second song previews in iTunes.
