More iPod Food: Stanford University on iTunes, and Original Wax Recordings
Something old, something new.
New: Stanford U. This isn't exactly new, but I haven't mentioned it yet, so it's new here. Stanford University is now operating a very appealing nook within the iTunes Music Store.
It's called Stanford on iTunes, and it's a source for audio recordings of Stanford lectures, interviews, music, and sports. You can also subscribe to podcasts of the same. And it's all free.
Old: from wax to bits. From the University of California, Santa Barbara, comes the Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project—a digital collection of over 5,000 wax cylinder recordings, many of which are over 100 years old. And they're all free.
Not free, but good. The world's best-selling iLife book is going for $23.09 on Amazon.com—34 percent off the cover price. With The Macintosh iLife '05, you get 345 beautifully designed pages and a two-hour, 45-minute instructional DVD. Learn more and watch some samples, then order your copy.
