The iPod Touch as the Ultimate Remote

As an Apple lover, it’s hard for me to come up with an Apple product I don’t have.  I’m typing this on my 27” iMac with both the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad, right next to me is my iPhone 4, and my iPad 2.  In my desk drawer I have an iPod Nano for working out, and I have a 160 gig iPod Classic filled with all my music.  I’m listening to music being streamed from Sonos into my iPod HiFi.  My Apple TV allows me to listen to watch movies and listen to music on my home theatre, and of course everything is being streamed through the house using my Apple Airport Extreme, and I have an Airport Express sitting my briefcase, right next to my Macbook Air.  There are only two products missing the Mac Pro and the iPod Touch.  But that’s about the change.

Borders bankruptcy

Borders Books Collapses

Borders Books has created a plan to ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to liquidate their remaining 399 stores, as if the economy could use anymore businesses going under. Overall the company hasn’t had the greatest public view, and would probably be better off liquidating their remaining stores anyways. Continue reading
