Apple’s iTV & The Case of the Missing DVR

I just stumbled upon this post about Apple's pre-announced iTV.

I’d Buy That for a Dollar

John Gruber at Daring Fireball recaps "the big Zune news this week" about Microsoft’s deal with Universal Music Group that includes a per-unit royalty on each Zune player sold. His analysis is spot-on.

"What we’ve got here is a nice, warm, shit sandwich from Universal Music, and Microsoft concluded that they had no choice but to eat it."


New Site Pays Bloggers For Reviews Of Advertisers' Products

Too bad no one actually reads my blog. Or that I don't actually write reviews. But there's money to be made if you do. At least until the VC money runs out.
