Mix: MicroMemo, Advance Auto Parts, iPopMyBaby, 50 Cent
XtremeMac has added a white version of its MicroMemo audio recorder for fifth-generation iPods. “In response to consumer interest, we have decided to make MicroMemo available in white as well as black,” said the company. “The white units will ship approximately 4-6 weeks after the first black units begin shipping. Both the white and black versions are now available for pre-order via our website.”
Advance Auto Parts is now offering free iPod-compatible car repair “how-to” videos. The video clinics show viewers how to perform a variety of maintenance tasks, including replacing brake pads, changing oil or installing shocks and struts.
iPodMyBaby.com has announced that it has changed its name to iPopMyBaby.com. “We received a letter from Apple to change our website address,” said David Schroeder, co-founder of iPodMyBaby.com. “We own the iPod baby clothing space, which probably scares Apple a little bit as we are selling thousands of iPod baby outfits and they aren’t selling any at all.”
Rap star 50 Cent is reportedly in negotiations with Apple to create a line of affordable computers for inner-city residents. “I’m creating a foundation that will be around for a long time, because fame can come and go or get lost in the lifestyle and the splurging,” Fifty Cent explained to Forbes. “I never got into it for the music. I got into it for the business.” “He [Jobs] is setting a new standard in the music business,” Chris Lighty of Violator management added. “Let’s just say we get each other.”
