Apps You Can't Live Without

by Giles Turnbull, O'Reilly Mac DeveCenter Blog

A brand-new Mac, plus those five additions, becomes a usable workspace for me.

How Well Is Apple Managing The Backdating Scandal?

by Peter Burrows, BusinessWeek

Apple should have come clean about Jobs involvement earlier, rather than let it leak out in dribs and drabs — and SEC complaints.

Apple Confirms iTunes Films For Europe This Year

by Jonny Evans, Macworld UK

Apple plans to offer films for sale through iTunes before the end of the year, a senior Apple executive has claimed.

Hello, Apple? Singapore? Not even iTunes music yet...

Apple Needs To Find A Finder Replacement

by Sven Rafferty, SvenOnTech

As screens become larger and resolution independence becomes a standard, Finder will just become more and more archaic.

Is Apple Obligated To Pass On Commodity Savings?

by Larry Dignan, ZDNet

Apple lowers prices once in a while, but for the most part it doesn't pass along savings to customers.

Dot Mac Dead?

by Alan Graham, Personal Bee

I'm seriously getting fed up with the delays and obvious omissions from Apple's online strategy, and I tend to believe that if the iPhone has been responsible for delays in OS X Leopard... where are Apple .Mac/iLife priorities?

Speculation: Cheap Computers Coming From Apple

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

Christopher Brennan reads between the lines of Apple, and speculates that something cheap is coming from Apple this upcoming quarter.

We know it's not the iPhone, and it's probably not iPods. MacBook Nano?

Steve Jobs, Saved By The Rising Stock

by Kevin Kelleher, GigaOM

iTunes, Subscriptions, And Getting It Right

by Christopher Breen, Playlist

It's simply a matter of doing it right. Can you think of a company more qualified than Apple to take on the job?

My guess is that Apple cannot find a suitable business model in providing subscription service. Customers win because they get their music. Labels win because they get their recurring income based on roughly the same pool of music. Apple loses because of the bandwidth cost.

It seems to me offering subscription service only works if the company is not that as popular as iTunes.

But, of course, never say never. :-)
