It's hard to compete against Apple. A few years back, SanDisk's CEO stated that no one could "out iPod the iPod," and to this day, everyone that has tried hasn't succeeded. Even Microsoft has let the Zune family die down, despite spending tons of cash marketing it as a major iPod competitor. Apple has just been on fire over the last decade,... Read more...
There are plenty of applications and websites that can translate text to other languages, but if you're looking at a sign or something, you'll have to type it into a translation app. What if, instead, you could take a snapshot and have an app translate the text in the image? That's the idea behind Word Lens, and it seems to work. The caveat... Read more...

You would have thought every person who loved the Beatles already took their CD collection and ripped it to their hard drive, and that huge iTunes sales would need to wait for a new generation. Apparently not: with the Fab Four is on iTunes, consumers purchased two million Beatles singles, and another 450,000 albums, in the first week. According... Read more...
Earlier in the week, Apple promised an announcement that the world would never forget. They probably shouldn't have said that, because by the end of this week, we suspect most people will have completely forgotten about this. There have been rumors over the years that Apple was considering a "subscription-based" iTunes plan similar to Microsoft's... Read more...
In early September, Steve Jobs took to the stage and unveiled the new-and-improved Apple TV. What was once considered a “hobby” device was reworked, streamlined, made more affordable, and aimed squarely at the masses. It enters an increasingly crowded market of devices that offer near-instant access to libraries of recent movies... Read more...

Basically, AirPlay is an Apple-branded wireless streaming service that will allow users to stream their iTunes music remotely from their... Read more...
Apple's clearly a big player in the music market. In fact, they sell more music in America than Walmart! It's pretty amazing how fast iTunes has become the go-to source for music, but it's clear that Apple has no intentions of slowing down. In an effort to battle the variety of ad-based free music streaming services (not to mention subscription... Read more...
Location, location, location is the mantra for real estate. Donnie and Kathy Fulbright, from Maiden, NC, know that well. Apple just paid them $1.7M to move out of the house they lived in for 34 years. After the couple rejected two offers, Apple told them to put a price on the single-story house built on less than one... Read more...
Apple's diminutive A4 processor has been the subject of much debate and interest since it debuted earlier this year. Now, multiple analysts and industry pundits are quietly hinting that we might see the chip in servers, set-top boxes, or other content servers. Much of this last is presumably drawn from the CPU's...

One of the less hardware-related announcements Apple made last week was iTunes 10. It's the double-digit beginning for a piece of software that has been a staple of iLife for years, but something beyond that it making news now. A tiny piece of iTunes 10 has emerged first on this new version: "Ping." What exactly Ping is has remaining up for... Read more...
Apple has done it: a new, refreshed Apple TV. Steve Jobs has called the Apple TV a "hobby" for some time, but it sounds like that hobby may be something more now. With the introduction of iOS, it seems that the Apple TV has new life. For the longest time, the Apple TV truly was a sore thumb in the company's lineup... Read more...
The real question is: what isn't Google planning to tackle? The company has evolved heavily since their beginnings as a search company, now dabbling in Internet, flight searches, FCC proposals, image searches, and probably a few things we're overlooking. And now, the company may just be ready to play ball in the same field as Rhapsody, Napster... Read more...
So, the question is: who's not in the music business these days? Apple has their iTunes Music Store and just recently acquired the LaLa streaming service, and HP just shelled out around $30 million to purchase a music streaming site of their own. Microsoft has their Zune subscription service, and then there's Rhapsody, Napster and a whole... Read more...
Apple's iTunes service has revolutionized the music industry. There's little debating that. Since it was introduced in 2003, CD sales have continued to slide, while iTunes sales have continued to soar. Apple has somehow managed to not only beat out Wal-Mart in overall music sales in the United States, but trounce it... Read more...
The music industry as we know it is undergoing serious turmoil. Technology has advanced far more quickly than music labels have, and it feels like they're still grasping for a new business model. A lot of things are moving in various directions; there's iTunes, there's the various subscription services, there's the CD business and there's... Read more...
Cloud-based services have come a long way recently, with tons of companies looking to faraway storage portals in order to host applications, files, media, you name it.
