NBC Universal: What are you thinking?

NBC Universal has chosen not renew iTunes contract. Are they high? I bought every episode of Heroes last season, and it was one of the most bought shows last year. That’s $40+ they won’t be getting from me this year.

An alternative to Nike+

In Sync

A while back, I wrote about how I was able to sync Google Calendar events with my iPod using Outlook 2007. Because of various problems I had with Outlook 2007, including data corruption issues caused in part by subscribing to Internet Calendars, I uninstalled the program and reinstalled Outlook 2003 on my system. I’ve tried the open-source add-in for… Continue reading In Sync
