This Year I'm Thankful For...

New Egg.

Seriously. The black friday sales across the web-o-tron were pretty good to be sure, but New Egg was straight up off the hook. I picked up a pair of 1 Gig SD cards for $40 a piece and seeing as I don't have a digital camera yet I also got a SD to USB converter for $5 so I can use them as regular flash drives. Boo-Ya.

Well I'm back in IC. I had a great holiday and hope you did too. Not a whole lot happening in Apple news this week, what with the holiday and all. The XBox 360 was released this week. Not huge news for the non-gaming Mac user, but it does offer some limited iPod compatibility so we'll see how that works out.

Tivo announced that they're planning on expanding their "Tivo To Go" offerings to the PSP and (more importantly to you and I) the iPod. Now this sounds pretty awesome if it weren't for the fact that the computer interface that all this content has to pass through in order to transfer to your shiny iPod is Windows only. No biggie, says Tivo, they should have a OS X version out "sometime next year."

Well it's about freaking time! According to a release from NPD Group Apple's iTMS has broken the list of Top 10 Music Retailers! We're up to #7 at this point but we've already taken down the likes of Sam Goody and Tower Records. Now it's just a matter of making the labels recognize that messing with the pricing structure at this point will only droves sales down. We're doing awesome right now, just leave us alone and let's see where we can take this thing.

That's about all the big news for the last week or so. Apple locked up it's flash needs for the next five years, some company wants to hack into FairPlay so that they can liscense it to other music stores, and Apple beat out everyone in Consumer Reports' yearly survey but you can check out the small fry on your own.
