With the announcement yesterday that all music on the iTunes Store will become DRM-free, I decided I wanted to track the progress to see which music files in my library haven’t been updated to 256kbps DRM-free AAC files yet (compared to the old 128kbps DRM’d AAC files). So I created a Smart Playlist to accomplish […]
Here a couple recent albums I really recommend to all of you. Recently I have only been buying music from iTunes Plus or Amazon.com MP3 Store, so I will include direct links to these albums for your purchase whenever possible so you can enjoy high quality DRM-free music the way it is supposed to be.

Just noticed that John Lennon’s music is now on iTunes. Not only that, it is 256kbps DRM-free copies too! iTunes Plus is really making me buy more music. 5 seconds later, I bought the Lennon Legend “greatest hits” album. Now I finally can listen to “Imagine” and his other classics.

As most people who follow tech news know, Apple did something extremely important yesterday with the help of a ‘Big 4’ record company, EMI. The two companies struck a deal to release EMI’s entire catalog onto iTunes DRM-free and at a much higher sound quality starting in May 2007. Singles will cost $1.29 apiece, while […]
One of my favorite bands of all time has lost their lead singer suddenly. R.I.P. Brad Delp. Wonder what happens with Boston now?
Check out this really neat iTunes plugin called iConcertCal. It basically scans your iTunes library for bands, compares the list to a couple of sites that contain concert info, then displays on a calendar inside of iTunes what bands have shows coming up in your area. I already noticed a couple shows I didn’t know […]
11:23pm and a work day tomorrow…yet I am blasting my eardrums. I love music.
