And thank God too. Lord only knows what chilling bills can be racked up via stolen credit cards. UK criminal, Suhail Tufail, put more than 7 000 debit and credit cards in the red thanks to purchases worth 750 000£ and the help of 4 other dodgy geezers. The group of five who used stolen credit cards to buy iTunes vouchers, make Gizmodo’s Jason Chen look like Little Riding hood. Fortunately, the UK’s big bad police have put these badboys behind bars. Apple’s products and services have been the target of criminals before and thanks to their cute industrial designs, will be again.

Morale of the story: don’t always jump at good-looking deals on eBay – you could be stealing someone else’s money. If it was yours, you’d probably hope for a little courtesy. Batten down the hatches ladies and germs, it’s criminality time!

Thanks to The Register

This just in: iPad to suck rocks; April’s big news is iTunes 9.1 http://www.touchmyapps.com/2010/04/01/this-just-in-ipad-to-suck-rocks-aprils-big-news-is-itunes-9-1/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2010/04/01/this-just-in-ipad-to-suck-rocks-aprils-big-news-is-itunes-9-1/#comments Thu, 01 Apr 2010 10:13:40 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=30453 The iPad sucks.

The iPad sucks. I’ll admit to having my suspicions about the device; it’s clumsy and half-arsedly pitched between devices: a formula which never, ever works. And, it’s made by the same Newton-designing Apple, a company who just cannot pin interloping gadgets. And TMA isn’t alone in thinking the worst of Apple’s soon-to-be-released device (to read on, follow the gap):

Gizmodo says you should stay away for these 8 11 reasons and TMA has a few things to say:

Not to be outdone by Giz, iPhonedownloadblog reckons that there are 16! unforgivable sins which Apple committed in designing the iPad. Again, TMA stands by them as well, iPad – the name alone brings stinging tears of contempt to my four eyes! To Giz’s list, they add:

There are other things to consider: the iPad’s got metal in it and that ain’t cool. Then, there’s the fact that it won’t be out in Korea till World Cup 2014, but the worst bit is that anything with the name #iPad in it is an immediate attention grabber. Golly I hate that bit, especially as an admin for an iPhone website. I mean hell, we care about a platform with two more letters in it, not a four-letter word!

And while we are never quick to judge, we can say without a doubt that Giz, iPhonedownloadblog, and the myriad others who have mentioned their dislikes so eloquently are spot on. I mean, it is only natural to judge a device which no one has used or seen and which will debut with a different OS, a stupidly high-quality IPS screen. At this point, my imaginings put the iPad at the bottom of the heap of unfounded, untried, not-yet-to-market devices which will be paved by the iPad’s introduction. Bet the iPad ain’t even much of a music player.

In fact, the iPad is just so embarrassing that I think I’ll just throw into the Microsoft miracle of a tablet which trounced the market back in the early part of last decade. Hell, I’m ready to say:

this just in: iPad sucks rocks and that iTunes 9.1 should be this month’s biggest news!

Happy April’s Fool everyone. It is a much better year than last when I suffered at the grimy hands of a pervert app developer… In a few days, we will see what the iPad is and is not and eventually can make our own informed opinions. Early pre-release opinions are silly – Giz and iPhonedownloadblog missed the boat here, but they may have cornered early hormone-prone reader traffic and I say, good on ‘em!

Be sure to follow all TMA’s iPad news/rumours/and silly opinions.

Having filled my CD quota for the week, Chromeo (DJ-Kicks Remix) took my download fancy and dear me is it good. I’ve been a fan of Chromeo’s offbeat, humorous text and melodies for a long time and this new album cements that fact. Deep bass, throbbing melodies, and a throw back to the 70′s, DJ-Kicks Remix really is ‘that album’ which makes other electronic records turn their faces down for not having offered fans enough ‘fun’. Don’t be scared by an abundance of French text, the album rocks from bottom to top with a few good ol’ hits and some new bad boys. There is a hitch with the iTunes release: the remixes is only 12 of 18 retail tracks. If you want the entire thing, head to HMV. The best part? The album clocks in at 7.99$, a great price for a lot ‘o groovin’!

Chromeo are a Montreal-based electrofunk duo whose inadvertent sensual text and beats are a hot laugh. The two have also been mates for years and in their own words: “the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture.”

Chromeo - Chromeo (DJ-Kicks Remix) Chromeo, Chromeo (DJ-Kicks Remix), $7.99

If you are a fan of Chromeo, their yearling albums:

Chromeo - Fancy Footwork (Deluxe Edition) Chromeo, Fancy Footwork (Deluxe Edition), $9.99

Chromeo - She's In Control Chromeo, She’s in Control, $9.99

are smashing albums which replace the 70′s for the 80′s and a lot of funk. In numerous headphone reviews, I drift in and out of Chromeo’s tight beats.
