10 Things I love and Hate about iTunes

by Laura Backes

www.dslserviceproviders.org

iTunes, like so many other great parts of our digital world, has things we love about it and things we hate about it. Sometimes the things we love, we also hate. Here’s my list of things I love and hate about iTunes.

  1. Love: It’s easy to buy songs – Your credit card or your iTunes gift card are attached to your account, so that all you have to do to purchase songs is click ‘Download’ and it transfers the song to your computer or your iPhone instantly. It’s wonderful!
  2. Hate: Too easy to buy songs – The other side of that story is the fact that it is so easy to do download songs that you do it more often than you would if you were purchasing at a store. It is so easy, that you don’t put as much thought into it and probably buy a lot of music that you wouldn’t have otherwise. Read the rest of this entry »

Music Purchases are going live in the Android Market mobile app for some U.S. users

by George Heymann

Technology-Headlines

I’ve seen posts today that the music purchases had gone live in the Android Market app for some U.S. users . Unfortunately, I could not see the music tab in the Market app installed on my HTC Sensation 4G app despite it being upgraded to the latest version.

If you’ve already updated to 3.3.11 and still don’t have the music tab don’t despair, the solution may be as simple as flushing the cache and clearing the data for the Android Market app.

From your phones home screen, hit the menu key and select settings. Tap manage applications, select the “All” tab and scroll down till you see Market and select that. Select clear cached, then clear data. Exit the manage application menu and return to the Android home screen. Click on the Android Marketplace app and accept the terms of service.
