MacOrama für den 23. Juli 2004

macoramaDie Geschichte des ehemaligen PortalPlayer Managers, der inzwischen bei MS arbeitet und damals die Firma verließ, weil er nicht an den Erfolg des iPod glaubte, wird wohl schon jeder bei Wired gelesen haben: "Knauss said at one of the first meetings with PortalPlayer, Fadell said, "This is the project that's going to remold Apple and 10 years from now, it's going to be a music business, not a computer business." Leander Kahney schiebt noch eine Anekdote hinterher: "According to Knauss, Fadell always dresses in matching clothes and accessories, and every day in a different color."

Alex Salkever sieht den chinesischen Markt von Apple vernachlässigt: "Here's an interesting factoid that Apple might want to ponder. The premium electric-shaver market in China is worth over $300 million in annual sales."

AirPort Express in weiteren Tests, sowohl von David Pogue in der NYT: "But Apple is the first to combine all of these functions, effortlessly and elegantly, and the fact that the Express comes with supremely simple setup software, looks great and fits in your pocket or laptop carrying case is just Wi-Fi gravy." Sowie von Walt Massborg im WSJ: "Alas, I found that while AirPort Express works as promised, it falls far short of being an ideal solution for listening to computer-based music in a distant room," der offensichtlich eine Fernbedienung vermisst und wohl über kein Bluetooth taugliches Mobiltelefon verfügt, was zugleich die simpelste Überleitung zum metamac Interview mit Jonas Salling darstellte.

Der iTMS und die Indies kommen voran: "According to the Association of Independent Music (AIM), there is a "standard independent template contract" now available for UK and European Indies. "Several hundred labels across Europe are expected to sign the agreement in the near future, bringing many of the world's most exciting acts to the service," the organisation said." schreibt The Reg und Apple erklärt per Pressemitteilung: "...that it has signed licensing agreements with three of the largest European independent music labels, Beggars Group, Sanctuary Records Group and V2, adding tens of thousands of additional independent tracks from leading artists to the iTunes Music Store in the UK, France and Germany." Die Indies zeigen sich jedenfalls zufrieden: "Apple's iTunes service now offers terms that address these initial concerns fully."

Gegenüber macnews.de teilte der deutsche Apple-Sprecher mit, dass der Support des europäischen iTMS ausgebaut werde: "Demnach sei das Team derzeit dabei, sich weiter "zu formieren", so Albrecht. Er rechnet damit, dass sich eine weitere Verbesserung der Kundenunterstützung bereits in einigen Tagen einstellen werde."
