Mix: iTunes winner, Toxins bill, Steve Jobs, PC case
Alex Ostrovsky, the winner of the iTunes billion song contest, has commented on his winnings. He says he will keep the iMac and an iPod, and give family and friends the remaining iPods. As for the $10,000 iTunes gift card, “My sister has already called from New York to talk about divvying it up,” he said.
A newly introduced California bill would require manufacturers to stop using hazardous materials in making cell phones, iPods and other battery-operated devices.
Apple co-founder and chief executive officer Steve Jobs turns 51 today. Jobs was born on February 24, 1955.
Logisys Computer has introduced a new computer case that resembles an iPod. The ePod Soho case is white and has “several buttons resembling those found on the scroll wheel of an Apple iPod, as well as a blue LED light that gives the case a constant backlit glow.”
