This month's best song title

I wish I had an evil twin

… from Magnetic Fields, I. And if you suspect that the words "doing people in" might also feature in the lyric, then you obviously know Stephin Merritt's work already. In my iTunes collection from tomorrow.


iTunes on Motorola

Writing about web page http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/040726/cgm065_1.html

Apple are partnering with Motorola to put a new version of iTunes into mobile phones. They'll put a player program on the phone, and tweak iTunes on the desktop so that it can send songs to your phone via USB or Bluetooth. Pretty cool idea; it'll massively increase the number of devices that iTunes can talk to (I wonder if the phone will be able to play DRM'd tunes from the iTunes store?), and presumably find a market by appealing to the (vast majority, I suspect) of users who wouldn't mind songs on their phone, but don't want to mess with memory cards or file transfers. If they make it as slick as the iTunes->iPod connection, it should be pretty much idiot-proof.
