Students choose iTunes, despite Napster partnership

The survey found that students were quick to sign up for the free service and were impressed with the service; however, they never purchased songs to make them a permanent part of their colleciton, citing limited compatibility with MP3 players, including the iPod. The survey also found that more than half of the students who used Napster still turned to other music sites, including 71 percent to iTunes as well as MusicMatch (16%), Rhapsody (4%), and Music Now (2%).

Amazing! This is what is call a beating! Even against a free service iTunes wins on pure merits...

Long-lived hacker mag shuts down. But some security firms aren't celebrating--for 20 years, Phrack gave them an insight into how hackers' minds were working. [CNET News.com]

I wasn't a regular reader but I am going to be sad to see Phrack pass away. With 2600 they were the two basic staples of the greatest generation of those curiously minded guys once known as Hackers.

Whining and Porn

Waa waa! Apple hasn't listed my really important podcast yet. Everyone needs to hear me talk NOW.

The internet is the most phenomenal platform for whining ever built.


Whining and Porn are the two reasons internet was created. Not only that, the whiners are just not getting enough porn...

Inside the big switch: the iPod and the future of Apple Computer.

Last week, IBM announced a dual-core version of the PowerPC 970 along with another low-power version. This comes just one month after Steve Jobs dropped the Intel bombshell at the WorldWide Developers Conference. With Jobs naming IBM's failure to provide a low-power CPU for laptops as one of the reasons for dropping PowerPC CPUs after 11 years. What gives?

Hannibal lifts the embargo on some information that he had been holding close to the vest, and there are a couple of surprises. There's definitely more to the story than meets the eye[~]think video iPod.
