Follwing its public spat with Apple regarding sales of its TV shows on iTunes, NBC Universal has announced that it has agreed to sell its programming on Amazon’s Unbox download service. Shows such as “Heroes,” “The Office,” and “30 Rock” will be available on Unbox the day after they are shown.
Palm has announced that it is canceling its Foleo mobile companion product in order to focus on its next generation software platform. The laptop-like device was scheduled for release this year.
Microsoft has announced that it is dropping the price of its Zune MP3 player to $199 from its previous suggested price of $249.
birdJam, the iPod-based bird identification resource, has announced that it has more than doubled its bird identification photography collection through a partnership with bird photographers Brian Small and Robert Royse. The birdJam Definitive Photo Collection is priced at $20.
