    The FBI agreed Wednesday to help an Arkansas prosecutor unlock an iPhone and iPod belonging to two teenagers accused of killing a couple, just days after the federal agency announced it had gained access to an iPhone linked to the gunman in a mass shooting in California. Faulkner County Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland said the FBI agreed to the request from his office and the Conway Police Department Wednesday afternoon. A judge on Tuesday agreed to postpone the trial of 18-year-old Hunter Drexler so prosecutors could ask the FBI for help. Drexler's trial was moved from next week to June...

    The kids gave mom an ipod several years ago. They put tunes on it for her back when, now she wants some new stuff added. I signed up for iTunes and bought some new music. How do I get them on there? The library doesn't match and it seems to want to delete the old stuff. It won't sync or upload because I'm to "authorized". Why is this so convoluted?

    Apple chief Tim Cook slammed what he called a wave of “dangerous” laws in several US states that he said promote discrimination and erode equality, in an editorial published Sunday. Cook — one of the most prominent chief executives to publicly acknowledge his homosexuality — wrote in the Washington Post that so-called “religious freedom” laws passed in several states threaten to undo progress toward greater equality. "There’s something very dangerous happening in states across the country," Cook wrote in the editorial.
  • Big Shake-Up to Music Licensing Regime Embraced by U.S. Copyright Office

    If adopted, these proposals will impact record labels, music publishers, producers, royalty collection groups, terrestrial and satellite radio, and music streaming services. In a 245-page report issued on Thursday, the U.S. Copyright Office is throwing its weight behind what would be the most radical changes to how music is licensed in nearly a half century. Many of the copyright laws governing music were first erected at the time that player pianos became popular and have developed through the advent of radio, new recording devices and, most recently, digital networks. Maria Pallante, director of the Copyright Office, believes the law is...

    A former iTunes engineer testified in a federal antitrust case against Apple Friday that he worked on a project “intended to block 100% of non-iTunes clients” and “keep out third-party players” that competed with Apple’s iPod. Plaintiffs subpoenaed the engineer, Rod Schultz, to show that Apple tried to suppress rivals to iTunes and iPods. They argue that Apple’s anticompetitive actions drove up the prices for iPods from 2006 to 2009; they’re seeking $350 million in damages, which could be tripled under antitrust laws. . . Apple argues – and Schultz agreed in court Friday – that it released many improvements...

    Recently I had a fairly pedestrian thought, a thought I've been having on and off for 10 years: "I want to put some music onto my portable music listening device." This used to be a relative cinch: I'd put the music on iTunes, plug in my iPod, and drag the songs over. Now, anytime I dare hook my iPhone up to a computer, there's software that needs updating, apps and photos I need to clear away for extra room, and esoteric rules regarding what is allowed to "sync." After finally getting an album onto my phone, another software update a...

  • Teen Honor Student Brutally Murdered Parents with Multiple Weapons (took away his iPod)

    A 16-year-old Norview High School student, Vincent Tyrell Parker of Norfolk entered a guilty plea to charges of killing both his parents in a brutal assault he claims was fueled by his dad taking away his iPod. Parker admitted to leaving school early, while his father was still at work. Vincent drove home to the 1000 block of Bland Avenue, where he lived with his parents. He went upstairs and pepper-sprayed his mother when she came out of the bathroom. He then stabbed her in the eye and beat her with a crowbar and a baseball bat. Vincent claimed at...

    A California woman opening up what she thought was a new iPod on Christmas morning was surprised and dismayed to find nothing but school supplies — pink erasers and index cards — inside the box instead. Similar to the iPad Mini purchased by a Florida man at a Walmart that turned out to be a couple of books instead, the iPod purchased by Jim Nevarde for his wife at a Mira Mesa, Calif., Target store was swapped and fraudulently returned. -snip Thankfully, the Target employees were understanding of his plight and provided him with another iPod. But Nevarde wasn’t about to leave...

    Some number of iPhone and iPad users upgrading to iOS 6 are reporting a range of Wi-Fi problems, as are some iPhone 5 users. The solutions, when there are any, seems as baffling as the problems. The continuing posts at Apple's tech support site and at online forums show users with existing iPhone and iPads frustrated by a flurry of different problems, including a "grayed out" Wi-Fi option, dropped connections, slow connection speeds, and having to connect manually to a Wi-Fi access point. Separately, there are posts by some owners of the new iPhone 5, released last Friday, also about...

    So here's the deal: After years of sacrafice, debt and driving a very old car to get three daughters through college and independent, they have made it possible for us to drive a vehicle as new as your average food stamp receipient. Not only does it have a beautiful sounding CD player (all but the radio was shot on our old car), but it also has one of those plug-in things. The girls tell us we need to buy an I-Pod or MP3 player of at least 4 gigabytes and a connecting cord to plug in so we can enjoy...

    Some professional journalists enjoy pooh pooh-ing the blogosphere because we lowly citizens simply don't have the required "layers and layers of fact checkers" that Real Journalists have to vett their articles though. But what happens when a Real Journalist organization really really really wants something to be true? Well then those layers of fact checking can go by the wayside like they did with this "expose" of Big Greedy Capitalist Apple and Demon Western Materialism (the iPhone). My favorite bit is where the author of the piece so desperately wants to paint Westerners as being so Greedy That Workers Must...

    Steve Jobs turned Eve's apple, the symbol of fallen humankind, into a religious icon for true believers in technology. But can salvation be downloaded? For every magical thing Steve Jobs revealed in his Apple keynote addresses, there were many other things he concealed. Like the devices he created, his life was more and more opaque even while becoming more and more celebrated. So his death this week came as a shock for nearly all of us, even though we knew that only grave illness could be keeping him from the company he co-founded and loved. He told us almost nothing...

    Herman Cain In recent weeks, we've all seen the video where Herman Cain completely destroys Clinton on healthcare (and if you haven't, you really should). It's clear that Cain is better at explaining his ideas than any republican president since Reagan. Certainly better than Bush I or Bush II. And Cain is certainly a better debater than Clinton, which means Obama would not stand a chance. The "Cain vs. Unable" slogan is cute. For astute watchers, it's also a little concerning though, as we all know how much the left would benefit from faking the death of Obama, a...

    With the passing of Steve Jobs, the question facing Apple is whether it can come up with "one more thing" to wow consumers without its iconic leader. Jobs, co-founder and chairman of Apple (AAPL), was known to introduce big surprises at the end of media events by announcing that he had "one more thing" to show the crowd. As CEO of Apple, he introduced such ground-breaking products as the iMac personal computer, the iPod music player, the iPhone smartphone and the iPad media tablet. In his early days with the company, he led the PC revolution with the Apple II...

    Apple has rolled out phase one of its cloud music offering this week, allowing iTunes users to download additional copies of past purchases on up to ten devices. However, users that bought their music on iTunes before Apple abandoned DRM some two years ago better get ready for an unexpected surprise: Files originally bought with Apple’s Fairplay copy protection are also once again downloaded with DRM. A number of users complained about this strange behavior on Twitter and on the web, with one stating that this would bring back “bad memories.” We were able to confirm it by re-downloading a...

    The human heartbeat could be used to power an ipod after scientists developed a tiny chip which uses the body's own movement to generate power. Scientists hope that as the nanotechnology used in the chip evolves, it could lead to electronics which don't require batteries or mains power. Hailed as a milestone, it can use tiny movements such as the pinch of a finger to generate power. The team, presenting their findings at the National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, have used it to power LCD displays and diodes, as well as to transmit a radio signal...
