Mix: USA Today, Apple TV & YouTube, EMI, PC World
USA Today placed the iPod eighth on its list of the Top 25 inventions of the last 25 years, behind innovations such as the cell phone, laptop computers, and DVDs. The newspaper celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
A new plugin for modified Apple TVs, called “A Series of Tubes,” allows users to access YouTube videos from the set-top box. The plugin is expected to be available as a download from the AwkwardTV plug-in directory soon.
Music company EMI Group has agreed to an acquisition by private equity firm Terra Firma for £3.2 billion, or approx. $6.4 billion. The deal must still be approved by the company’s shareholders.
PC World has unveiled its list of the Top 100 Products of the Year for 2007, with the Apple TV placing 11th. Strangely absent was the iPhone, which instead received mention as Most Anticipated Product.
