08/30/2007 Listen to Your Customers
This applies to podcast listeners as well as traditional customers. Listen to what they are saying and adjust your podcast accordingly.

Mastering the art of managing customer complaints can seem like a thankless job, but keep in mind that for every customer that shares their worries, concerns or complaints, there are likely more that did not express their dissatisfaction, and instead simply moved on to a competitor. Customer complaints can, and should be treated as opportunities.

08/29/2007 Voice Over Tips for Blog
For a start, it would help if we all had one of those voice-over voices like you hear in film trailers and advertisements.
That is not as hard as you might think. Sure, you may not have a deep, sonorous voice that makes Nicolas Cage actually seem heroic, but that is not necessary. The real trick- and it is a trick - is to learn how to highlight particular phrases and be consistent in your speech.

08/27/2007 Unofficial iPhone Hack Opens it to Europe
A 17-year-old hacker has broken the lock that ties Apples iPhone to AT&T's wireless network, freeing the most hyped cell phone ever for use on the networks of other carriers, including overseas ones.

George Hotz of Glen Rock, N.J., spent his last summer before college figuring out how to  unlock the iPhone, freeing it from being restricted to a single carrier, AT&T Inc.

The procedure, which the 17-year-old posted on his blog Thursday, raises the possibility of a cottage industry springing up to buy iPhones, unlocking them and then selling them to people who don't want AT&T service or can not get it, particularly overseas.

08/26/2007 iPhone Locked in Legal Issues
Fear of litigation has led to an indefinite delay in the planned Saturday release of software to unlock Apple iPhones.


John McLaughlin, founder of Uniquephones, based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, said Saturday that he received a phone call about 3 a.m. Saturday local time from a man claiming to be from OMelveny & Myers LLP, an international law firm, calling on behalf of AT&T. The firm has worked with Apple in the past.

The man informed McLaughlin that if he posted the unlock code, he could be sued for copyright infringement and for dissemination of Apples intellectual property.

08/15/2007 John Lennon on iTunes
Apple Inc said on Tuesday it would offer the entire solo catalog of John Lennon on iTunes in its second such deal with one of the Beatles, who have been among the highest-profile holdouts to put tunes online.

Apple Inc. has begun selling downloads of tracks from 16 of John Lennons post-Beatles albums, including Working Class Hero and John Lennon -Plastic Ono Band, on iTunes, the company said Tuesday.
08/14/2007 gBox Another iTunes Competitor
Add gBox Inc. to the growing list of online music services hoping to chip away at iTunes dominance.


The Cupertino, Calif., startup was forced out of a stealth mode when Universal Music Group announced late Thursday it would test sales of some digital music without the customary copy-protection technology.

Under the program, gBox will get referrals through ads Universal will buy through search leader Google Inc., gBox Chief Executive Tammy Artim said Friday.

08/08/2007 AC DC Snubs iTunes
AC DC is finally selling its music digitally. But not on iTunes. AC DC Music will be available through Verizon.
08/07/2007 New Music on Phone Plan
In a joint announcement, AT&T and eMusic on Tuesday launched a new mobile music service for AT&T subscribers that uses a different—and potentially crippling—pricing model.


The new service lets AT&T customers preview and purchase music directly from their handsets, with access to an estimated catalog of 2.7 million over-the-air tracks. That makes it the largest wireless music catalog available, according to eMusic. Once a subscriber purchases a song, it is downloaded directly to the cell phone. Meanwhile, a duplicate copy is also available for downloading to a users PC later on.

However, there's a twist: with the new eMusic Mobile service, users don't buy tracks on an individual basis. They also don't subscribe to the service and rent access to the entire catalog, a la Napster-To-Go. Instead, the eMusic Mobile service charges $7.49 per month for a subscription; once subscribed, a user can download any five DRM-free tracks in MP3 format from the full catalog.
