Mix: Gates/Bono, Dave Matthews, Rhapsody, Wired 40, Dentist

U2 frontman Bono may be friends with Microsoft’s Bill Gates (and even stays at his house when his band comes to Seattle), but their friendship isn’t enough to make Gates buy a special edition U2 iPod. “Absolutely not,” Gates said.

Dave Matthews Band is now offering its first track ever on the iTunes Music Store. The song is “American Baby,” the first single from the band’s upcoming album Stand Up.

RealNetworks has announced new versions of its Rhapsody subscription music service, including one that will offer users 25 free songs each month. For $9.99 a month, users can download an unlimited number of songs, and they can now transfer those to select portable audio players for another $5 a month.

Apple is ranked No. 1 on this year’s Wired 40 list, Wired magazine’s annual ranking of the tech companies leading in technology, innovation, and strategic vision.

In an article for ComputerWorld, John Webster, senior analyst and founder of the Data Mobility Group, tells how his dentist is using an iPod to store patient records.
