Mix: Hot unpluggable, iConcertCal, Zune exec, Red 5 Studios
Apple recently filed for a patent for a hot unpluggable iPod. “The filing lays out improved techniques for rendering a peripheral—such as an iPod or iPhone—removable from a host computer without the user first having to perform preparatory unmounting actions through software.”
iConcertCal is a new iTunes plug-in that “monitors your music library and generates a personalized calendar of upcoming concerts in your city.” The plug-in is available for both Windows and Mac OS X.
A senior Microsoft executive in charge of the new Zune digital media player is leaving the company. Microsoft said Bryan Lee, corporate vice president at Microsoft’s entertainment and devices division, is leaving the company to “pursue personal interests.”
Game developer Red 5 Studios is sending out customized iPods to potential new employees. “They are on some sort of recruiting blitz, trying to nab devs from elsewhere. Included with the iPod is a personal web link tailored to the recruit, with details about the job they are hoping the recruit would be interested and background on the company.” [via Airbag]
