NOW APPLE MOVES INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY PROPER: There's not quite a launch, but more than mulling, over at Infinite Loop as Apple prepares to flog music online. Older readers will remember that the first apple noise - sosumi - was so called because Apple Computers had promised Apple Records that they would never move into the recorded music field, so the shared name would not be a problem.
Apple aren't using MP3 for the downloads, which is a bit of a pity but you can imagine the cow the RIAA would have had if they'd tried that.
Talking of which, a whistleblower from the IPFI claims to have attempted to flood peer to peer networks with rubbish files in a bid to descredit the network. Mind you, he claims Mariah Carey was a talent forced into the wrong style for her, which suggests he might just be nuts.
