iTunes Plus (DRM Free tracks now available)

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

It seems that Apple Inc. have (finally) launched the DRM free tracks on the iTunes Music Store, which I am pretty sure is a good thing. Now Apple don’t deserve all the credit here – EMI (and a big applause to them for the decision to go the route of portable music) deserve big kudo’s […]

Windows Vista – An Irritant

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

This is a rant. I have installed Vista on my MacBook Pro, while I do prefer using the Mac for many things (as it suits my work flows better) but there are occasions where Windows is required (whipping up a Win only app, software designed for windows only, or websites that will just not work […]
