…John Mayer’s iTunes crashes too?

John Mayer Apple Crash Report

Apparently John Mayer’s talents extend beyond the musical arena from time to time, because when his iTunes crashed as he was trying to load it up with new running music to replace “Bittersweet Symphony” with, he typed out one of the best crash reports I’d imagine anyone at Apple has ever seen.

Want to take bets on how long it takes Apple to get back to him?

…Your Starbucks coffee comes with music?

Apple - iTunes - Starbucks

To get folks to try out the new Starbucks-Apple iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, Apple will be giving away $50 million in “Song of the Day” cards to coffee customers from October 2 to November 7.

The cards will be good for a hand-picked song from the iTunes library, which might sound limiting, but with artists like Bob Dylan, Joss Stone, Dave Matthews, Bebel Gilberto, John Mayer, KT Tunstall, John Legend, Annie Lennox, Joni Mitchell, Keith Urban, Paul McCartney, Sia, Band of Horses, Hilary McRae, Frederico Aubele and Sara Bareilles, it’ll probably be something worth hearing.

It might not pay for the $5 coffee, but at least you get something with your daily caffeine fix.

…iMix 04.07 is out?

iMix 04.07

The DYH iMix 04.07 is the first in a monthly series of iMixes that will feature unique music for you to download and enjoy. Each iMix will contain 10 songs, and is going to be a compilation of genres, ages, and popularity levels. The goal is to highlight new music that you haven’t heard of, and to provide you with a source of songs to add to your music collection. For the first month, the tracks are as follows:

  1. Cat Stevens – Where Do The Children Play? – A classic from the man now known as Yusef Islam.
  2. José González – Heartbeats – The song made famous by the Sony Bravia ad.
  3. Michael Andrews & Gary Jules – Mad World – The song made famous by the Gears Of War ad.
  4. Carrie Underwood – Before He Cheats – Hell hath no furry like a woman scorned.
  5. Britney Spears – (You Drive Me) Crazy – Considering the recent Britney news, the irony of this song continues to grow on a daily basis.
  6. MIMS – This Is Why I’m Hot – Takes every currently popular hip-hop niche and mixes them all into one catchy track.
  7. John Mayer – Waiting On The World To Change – Feel good music with a message.
  8. The Pack – Vans – A group of high school students from Berkeley California rapping about their shoes.
  9. O.A.R. – The Was A Crazy Game Of Poker – A story song that makes you want to jump out of your chair and dance.
  10. Brad Paisley – She’s Everything – A love song about the subtle things that make someone special.

Sounds good, right? I thought so too. Though I’m trying to do the work for you, I’m also open to suggestions, so if you think that you’ve found something iMix worthy, let me know. Rock out.
