In the past, Apple touted its iTunes LP format for a richer experience than plain audio, similar in concept to the extras found on DVD movies. The release of the Beatles oeuvre on Tuesday was another chance to highlight the format. However, some customers discovered that while they can purchase the content on an iOS devices such as an iPad or iPhone, these mobile players don't yet support the playing of iTunes LP content.

Like many folks, I don't go to the movies nearly as much as I used to. Big screen high-definition TVs, DVD players, Blu-ray players, and surround-sound systems, along with the cheap availability of titles on disc and streamed over the net now means that the movies comes to me when I want them, and on my own terms (also, my popcorn is better and cheaper!). However, over the holidays I went to see the Avatar, the James Cameron CGI space-fest. But rather than go see it in standard 2D, I opted for a 3D showing because I wanted something extra. While 3D is interesting (you could say it adds a new dimension to the movie going experience), will 3D make me go to the cinema more?
Every year that I have gone to CES, there is one event that stands out above all the rest and that is the Pepcom Digital Experience press event. I could actually go to this event, wander the floor for a couple of hours, meet with about five people and have a great CES experience. I attended last night and spent the entire three hours it was open walking through row and row of vendors, something around 125 total. I stuck to the vendors in the mobile space and those who I have some other interest in and they included Microsoft, HTC, Lenovo, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Roku, Wilson Electronics, OLED Association, PowerMat, Barnes & Noble, Motorola, LG, Novatel Wireless, and many more. I wrote up some thoughts of my favorites who had products that really interested me and included them in my CES 2010 image gallery.

FLO TV is television sent out over the airwaves and does not use your wireless data for streaming television content. These products will start shipping during the first half of this year.
Most of the excitement in the mobile phone space this week focused on the announcement of the Motorola DROID on Verizon Wireless. Looking at the Verizon Wireless press release archive page you have to scroll down to the 6th or 7th story to find that the RIM BlackBerry Storm2 was also announced this week with availability occuring a couple of days ago on Wednesday, 28 October. Crackberry.com has a detailed review that covers the device in detail and it looks like the Storm2 is the device that the original Storm should have been. RIM tried some different things with the Storm, primarily with their clickable display, that took away from the BlackBerry experience and this no longer seems to be the case.
Do you ever go to meetings wanting to know more about the people who will be in attendence? Do you ever have some spare time while traveling and think it would be a great time to touch bases with a client or prospective client? If you answered yes to either then I highly recommend you give the free Gist service a try. And if you have an iPhone you can now take that experience mobile and have a ton of valuable information right at your fingertips with the Gist iPhone app (iTunes store link). I have been testing Gist for about a month and the iPhone client for just over a week. I am not in sales, marketing, or an industry that meets with a ton of people, but I do meet with clients and other industry people at conferences and events and find Gist to be a valuable tool to have in your arsenal, especially if you are socially connected.
AT&T Navigator's subscription based GPS navigation solution (see our review) was the first full GPS voice navigation system for the Apple iPhone, but there is now some serious competition in the GPS navigation space that may even start knocking out dedicated PND. The biggest news today is that TomTom for the iPhone was released in the US. TomTom (iTunes link) is a well known name in PNDs and their iPhone solution is one of the most costly at $99. Other recent stand-alone (no subscription required) GPS navigation solutions for the iPhone include Navigon at a special $69.99 launch price and CoPilot Live for $34.99. There is quite a price range across these navigation solutions and we'll have to see if the high cost of TomTom is worth the premium over CoPilot Live 8.
