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.”

Bockstein later said, “A high-end cell phone shouldn’t have to have low-end customer service.”
