As we mentioned in yesterday’s poll question, at the beginning of the week Apple surprised us all by posting an announcement on their homepage. Something big was coming from iTunes. So big in fact that Apple promised us a day we would never forget.


The big tease from Apple

Naturally, our imaginations ran wild. Would it be a new streaming service? Would the long-awaited cloud-based iTunes app now become reality? Or was Apple cooking up something even better that we hadn’t even thought of yet?

Earlier this week, Apple dedicated their homepage to a special announcement that something big was coming from iTunes. They hyped it as a day we would “never forget.” Speculation immediately ran wild, everything from an early launch of the Mac App Store to a cloud-based iTunes service was postulated.

We now know that the big news was about the Beatles finally coming to iTunes. This represents the end of years of legal struggles for Apple, but is it really a day you’ll never forget? Cast your vote and let us know! Then leave a comment below and tell us whether or not you’ve purchased any iTunes Beatles music.

iOS (formerly iPhone OS) has come a long way since its inception. What began as a simple system with only a few default apps and zero expansion opportunities is now a powerful application platform with desktop-like features such as copy and paste, global search and more.

Despite this notable progress, there’s always room for improvement. Today we’ll go over my personal wish list for the platform then ask for your input on features you’d like to see Apple implement in the future.


The web has become saturated with surprisingly high quality content created entirely on iPhones. Never before has a device that contains a camera merely as a secondary feature so impacted the worlds of photography and cinematography.

The question is, are these industries better or worse with the arrival of the iPhone? Is this device improving the digital world by putting multimedia-based art forms into the hands of the masses or is it critically cheapening decades of hard work from serious professionals? Let’s discuss.

In order to better target our articles to our reader base, we want to know which Apple multi-touch devices you own (check all that apply). Are you dedicated (wealthy?) enough to own all of the available options or are you perfectly happy with your iPod Touch?

We’ll use this information to continue offering content that is useful and interesting to you so be sure and fill out the poll so you can be counted!

Also, leave a comment below and let us know more about the devices you own. Is your iPhone a 16 GB 3GS or a 32GB iPhone 4? We want to know!

The original Palm Pre launched with no small amount of excitement. Largely due to its beautiful WebOS platform, the Pre was instantly hailed as an “iPhone Killer” by countless tech journalists and bloggers (aren’t they all?). Even I thought this phone looked amazing. It just had so much that the iPhone didn’t (at the time). An innovative multi-tasking system, a slideout physical keyboard, cool gestures to bring up hidden menus, global search, Facebook contact syncing, and more. All of this of course came in addition to various iPhone-like features that had Apple calling their patent lawyers.

However, here we are well over a year later and the iPhone is still the king (though Android is a serious threat). Even the newer Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi failed to gain the interest of consumers. Meanwhile, the horribly performing Palm, Inc. has been acquired by HP in hopes that the PC titan can revive the Palm brand. Now after a considerable period of silence, HP has launched the Palm Pre 2 along with WebOS2.

With HP’s backing, will this new Pre finally gain a considerable following and challenge the iPhone?
