September 9th iPod Event Wrap Up.

  • September 9, 2009 1:28 pm


So the iPod event many have been waiting months for has finally wrapped up. Many goods, digital and physical were revealed. To many Apple fans alike, probably the best announcement came from Steve’s mouth himself! That’s right, Mr. Jobs is back in the public limelight, though, he did tag team with his good friend Phil Schiller as well as several others. Enough small talk. There was plenty to see and hear. Hop on in for a wrap up of all of the highlights…

iTunes Music download test on Edge and 3G

  • January 6, 2009 9:47 pm


Red Eye Chicago has already started putting the paces on AT&T’s strained network by testing the download times of songs on both Edge and 3G showing what we iPhoners can get used to downloading music untethered and outside of Wi-Fi networks.  The test song was “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” by The Police.  The results?  It took TiPB 1 minute and 3 seconds to download the song over 3G, while Edge puttered along a little slower taking a full 23 minutes!  Both tests were conducted with five bars (we know how reliable those little bars are now!)  Now of course speeds will vary by location as I hope to god Edge isn’t that slow everywhere.  So for all of you wondering how long it would take to download over AT&T’s network, now you know!
