Mix: iPhone details, EMI deal, Assaulted teacher, Marriott hotels

Actioncorp TV has produced an interesting video with “hidden details” from Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ iPhone announcement. Of particular interest is strong evidence that Apple intends to sell music ringtones.

Talks between EMI Group and online music sellers—including Apple and Microsoft—about offering music free of digital rights management (DRM) have stalled because the companies balked at the size of an advance payment required by EMI.

The Associated Press reports: “A high school teacher was assaulted by two students and hospitalized with broken vertebrae after he took an iPod away from one of them during class, officials said.”

Marriott Hotels & Resorts, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, and Renaissance Hotels & Resorts plan to offer high-definition, LCD televisions with an iPod-ready “digital connectivity panel” and 25-watt stereo speaker system in all its guest rooms in the U.S. and Canada.

I love the move by Marriott. I currently have to bring cables and hope that I have access to the RCA ports on a hotel’s TV. I wonder if this port will include charging capabilities.

EMI - Ha, you had to know that something was up with them. They were too willing.

The story about the teacher beating has been all over Philadelphia - it’s really disgusting. This city is just plain too violent and it’s a real problem.

I would never trust any of my teachers with my iPod. I have heard too many cases of teachers losing things and things being taken from their desks. I wouldn’t assault a teacher though.

The story said the students will expelled and electronic devices are not allowed in class rooms. Its not like the students didn’t know better. Too bad they are minors and will get off light.
