Mix: Google, Dupin, LEGO, Audi, 33 nanos
The release of the iPhone caused a sharp jump in Google Maps activity, according Marissa Mayer, Google’s vice president of search products and user experience. “Maps usage hasn’t stopped rising,” Mayer claimed.
Doug’s AppleScripts for iTunes has released Dupin v1.0, an application that assists with locating, sorting, filtering, and deleting duplicate tracks in iTunes. It requires iTunes 7.0 or later and Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and sells for $15.
Audi is displaying some of its models at Apple Expo in Paris, and according to The German Car Blog, both the Audi A3 and A5 will come equipped not just with iPod adapters, but with the iPods themselves. From their translation: “What you’ll find: the iPod adaptor on the A3 Sportback and the Audi Music Interface on the new Audi A5, both of which are equipped with a new iPod.”
A brief but interesting set of photos posted to flickr shows a group of 33 black iPod nanos (with video), surrounding one silver model.
