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.

Shopping choices get easier

by George Heymann

Technology-Headlines

Expect to see big crowds out shopping for e-readers or tablet computers this holiday season.

The flurry of product announcements from Apple, Amazon and Barnes & Noble is revving customer interest in devices that already are hot sellers.

I get asked all of the time for recommendations for both e-readers and tablets.

My answer usually begins with at least two additional questions:

What do you want to do with it?

How much money do you want to spend?

JooJoo successor Grid-10 tablet computer launched by Fusion Garage

by John Roberts

Technology Market

Fusion Garage, the company behind the Linux-based JooJoo tablet, launched the innovative Grid-10 tablet computer while also revealing itself as the brand behind TabCo, the parody company that captured industry and consumer attention over the past eight weeks. The Grid-10 is Fusion Garage’s second generation tablet and brings a host of new features to the tablet market including a new operating system, a dynamic user interface based on the semantic web that offers “predictive intelligence” and the highest resolution display available.

On the same global webcast, Fusion Garage CEO Chandra Rathakrishnan demonstrated the Grid-4 smart phone, a standalone smart phone that also works in tandem with the Grid-10 tablet. The Grid-4 and Grid-10 take advantage of the company’s new Seamless State capability. Seamless State lets users consume content on a Grid-10, pause, and pick up that same content exactly where they left off while switching to the Grid-4.

Review: Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition

by George Heymann

techeadlines@gmail.com

I recently made the move from a desktop to a laptop as my main personal computer. One of the compromises I had to make when moving to an ultraportable laptop with SSD drive was storage space.

My first impulse was to purchase an external hard drive (HD). All I needed to do was decided between buying a USB 2.0/3.0 drive now or waiting for a reasonably priced Thunderbolt capable external drive later.

After weighing my options, I came across a solution I hadn’t initially considered, a network-attached storage drive (NAS). The NAS drive commonly referred to as Cloud Storage drives operates as a secure file server on your home or office network.
