Mix: USA Today, Apple TV & YouTube, EMI, PC World

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.
