- Tether Free for iPhone 02 – Tether Free is an application written to let you use the Internet on your iPhone for free. It uses the same access point for tethered access as your iPhone uses for normal data so as far as I can tell no additional charges *should* be incurred.
- Google move paves way for Firefox on Android | Webware – CNET – Google's move to let software run natively on Android devices opens the door for a version of Firefox that can run on the operating system.

My last post about free music killing a revenue stream is obviously plain wrong. Amazon, iTunes, Play.com all showing huge jumps in Micahel Jackson purchases.
I am happy to stand totally corrected.
The sad news of Michael Jackson’s death has lit up the social streams as the news is radiated around the world, coupled with commentary, reaction and the occasional bad joke. His plans for an unparalleled set of concerts were set to restore his financial status and professional credibility. But with his early passing, the opportunity for such revenue generation has passed.
No doubt the record label(s) will be looking to reissue, repackage, re-evaluate the songs (double pack with a photograph, extra track and a tacky badge) which will help recoup some income for his surviving family.
But with the advent of new music channels, from Blip Fm to Spotify and Pandora, the ability to play the music instantly and share globally must start to impact on the revenue opportunity for back catalogue sales.
Is death no longer a career move?

- AIM and Beejive Instant Messaging iPhone Apps Updated with Push Notifications – Mac Rumors – Two major instant messaging clients (AIM and Beejive) for the iPhone and iPod Touch were updated tonight with support for Push notifications. Instant messaging was always cited as one of the major reasons the iPhone and iPod Touch needed some form of background processing. Prior to iPhone 3.0, if you were to switch out of these applications, there was no easy way for the applications to notify you of an incoming message.
