Another day, another software update from Apple. Unlike yesterday’s release of OS X 10.6.4, today’s release applies both Mac and PC users as it is iTunes 9.2 that has been released. For most people the performance enhancements will be the big draw, but if you’re planning on picking up an iPhone 4 or upgrading your current device to iOS 4 on Monday, you’ll definitely want to grab  iTunes 9.2 while it’s hot. Check out the changelog after the jump and then hit up the read link to grab the new wares. More →

Apple sells 300,000 iPads as of Saturday

Apple sells 300,000 iPads as of Saturday

ipad-launch

Apple just fired off a press release touting the fact that they’ve sold over 300,000 iPad devices as of Saturday at midnight. A far cry from Gene Munster’s 700,000 (though some could say that’s what happens when you count people and not stock check), it’s still pretty in line with what everyone else was predicting, and that’s kind of amazing. Also, the 300,000 figure is the entire figure — pre-orders, Apple store sales, partner sales, etc. People also downloaded over 250,000 books from the iBooks store as well as over one million apps. Here’s a quote from Steve Jobs:

“It feels great to have the iPad launched into the world — it’s going to be a game changer,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad.”

Not bad, not bad. More →

iTunes 9.1 now available, kills sync for some jailbroken devices

itunes-91

Yesterday we got OS X 10.6.3 and today we have iTunes 9.1. The changes as stated in Software Update are some tweaks to Genius Mixes as well as the ability to sync and manage iPads. But the real news here is one major change that was not mentioned: jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches are now unable to sync with iTunes, or at least according to a bunch of feedback we’ve received (others report this is not the case). Bottom line: Unless you’re getting an iPad this Saturday, you might want to play it safe and not update to iTunes 9.1 until this is all cleared up. More →
