There are a LOT of sad people out there today. The iPhone was updated to version 1.1.1 which has been affectionately dubbed iScrewed. You know all of those unlocked iPhones? Well they might be dead. Apple has warned several times over the last week or so that a new update may prevent unlocking they even put this in the installer for the update…

“If you have modified your iPhone’s Software, applying this software update may result in your iPhone becoming permanently inoperable.”

In conjunction to stopping the unlocks (which is LEGAL!) the update kills all 3rd party apps. So fanboys, you were warned…. but it still sucks! Guess my plans to get one soon are gone because I refuse to use AT&T….

The iTunes store is in trouble. Yesterday Amazon put there MP3 store into Beta. I tried it, I like it, and unless iTunes ups the ante I will be buying at Amazon from now on. So, what’s so different? Well Amazon MP3’s are 256kbps with no DRM and cheaper. That means higher quality sound and they can be played on ANY MP3 player or PC. When you buy from iTunes you are locked into an account that you must log into and into iPods only.

The store itself is clean and easy to navigate just like the rest of Amazon. I purchased two albums from them with great results. One was not in the iTunes store at all and the other was $3.00 cheaper. You can not beat that! Now, lets see how Apple responds 🙂
