Mix: Zeppelin, O2, Battery, Translator
A recent Guardian report claims that the Led Zeppelin collection “Mothership” will be available on iTunes when it hits stores November 12. The tracks, chosen by Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones, include “Stairway to Heaven,” “Whole Lotta Love,” and “Kashmir.”
Another report claiming O2 will carry the iPhone in the UK has appeared. While refusing to confirm that it has signed a deal with Apple, O2 chief executive Peter Erskine said: “We’re excited about this product and we certainly hope to be marketing it later in the year when it launches.”
New York’s Consumer Protection Board has raised complaints about the iPhone’s battery and Apple’s return policies. “I encourage Apple to redesign the iPhone in order to provide for a replaceable battery,” Mindy Bockstein, chairwoman and executive director of the Board, wrote to Steve Jobs, chief executive of Apple, in a letter dated July 17. Bockstein later said, “A high-end cell phone shouldn’t have to have low-end customer service.”
Coolgorilla has announced its iPhone Translator, sponsored by online travel retailer lastminute.com. The web-based application offers text and audio translations of common phrases in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and German. The translator can be accessed by visiting coolgorilla.com/iphone.
