    Google yesterday doled out some major upgrades to their Mobile software suite, specifically Gmail. An entire new look greets Gmail users on their iPhone now, with some huge improvements.

    Accessing email is much faster now, and the data is cached as well so if your network drops, the emails still load (assuming you've been on long enough to load a few). You can select multiple emails once, and there is a sexy little floating ...

    As of yesterday all the tracks on iTunes are DRM Free. Yes all! Also all songs on the iTunes Store are now at 256kbps AAC encoding, which according to Apple is indistinguishable from the original recordings.

    With the death of iTunes store DRM comes variable pricing. There are three options for someone (record labels?) to set the songs at for purchase. ...

    I get annoyed that my car has a nifty DVD player/GPS nav system/6CD changer/XM.... and yet no way for me to simply PLUG IN MY iPHONE. Maybe you have the same issue.... and you have Bluetooth?

    That's good news ...
