Mix: iClooly, Radiohead, iTunes Festival, Phoenix


RockridgeSound has introduced its iClooly stand for the iPod touch. While the stand is depicted as featuring a design inspired by Apple’s current line of iMac computers, with an aluminum base, matte black back, and a rotating holster for the touch, the stand does not appear to provide complete access to the iPod’s headphone port, making its practicality a question mark. The RockridgeSound iClooly stand for iPod touch will sell for ¥4,980 (about $47) when it goes on sale June 7. [via Engadget]

English rock band Radiohead, one of the biggest remaining holdouts from the iTunes Store, has had its complete back catalog of albums, songs, and music videos added to the store. The entire catalog, save for the band’s debut album “Pablo Honey,” is available in the DRM-free iTunes Plus format.

Apple has announced its iTunes Live: London Festival ‘08, a month-long music event to be held at London’s KOKO in July. As with last year’s iTunes Festival: London, each of the performances will be recorded and made available for sale on iTunes. Notable performers scheduled for this year’s festival include Death Cab for Cutie, CSS, James Blunt, and N*E*R*D. [via Macworld UK]

The University of Arizona has added video and animation relating to the Phoenix Mars Mission to iTunes U. The programs range from around a minute to nearly fifty minutes length, and include media related to the landing and launch of Phoenix, as well as talks from various speakers.

Why in the world is “Pablo Honey” not in iTunes Plus format?

The iCooly website does state:
“Accessories: Dedicated headphone extension cable (mini-stereo)”
For what that’s worth, maybe they have already thought of the issue and just don’t have product photos supporting cable.

The iCooly looks nice but I have and prefer thoughtout’s Naja King because the cable is flexible and easily portable since it folds down flat.  I can adjust the height to eye level when watching shows or listening to music to view the screen more easily.

I love the idea of this stand. I just wish it were for the iPhone.
