iTunes is the master of its domain when it comes to digital music distribution and Apple is even breaking into online distribution of podcasts, music videos, TV show and movies. But there's a virtually untapped new market on the horizon for Apple's venerable music distribution platform: magazines and books.

Apple has the potential to shake up the printed magazine and book market just like they did with music and now television and movies. It's good news for trees but bad news for some ivory tower-type fat cat print executives.

01/04/2007 Music Industry Changes Tune
An article in the Wall Street Journal explains that the music industry is looking at licensing podsafe music:

Licensing music for podcasting has long been a source of internal debate at music labels. Many executives argue that it is worth handing over some content to spur consumer interest, while others maintain that the companies erode the value of their product by knowingly allowing it to be freely downloaded and copied.

Ted Cohen, a digital-media strategist who for many years was an executive at EMI Group PLC, says that keeping up-and-coming artists "protected" from use in podcasts has often backfired. "We've protected them so well nobody knows they exist," he quips.

01/02/2007 2006 Reflections, 2007 Predictions
For the most part in 2006, the world escaped Natures wrath, but people were far less kind to their neighbors. 2006 is scarred not by the winds and oceans but by political turmoil across the globe. The Middle East quagmire is the epitome of how wrong things can go, with the war in Lebanon, infighting in Palestine, Iran's nuclear ambitions, and Iraq's sectarian violence the deepest scars of 2006 were self inflicted with man being his own enemy. Of course, the Middle East is not alone with it's own self-destruction. Genocide in Chad and Sudan show how truly intolerant the human race really is. North Korea's impatience and nuclear activity have disrupted Asia. In fact, few areas of the world were left unscathed by man's ambitions in 2006.

Again technology has brought the tragedies of war and the personal stories of families from the farthest corners of the earth, to the door steps of the west. Citizen journalism and Internet propagation has added a complex layer to the stories. The growth of YouTube, Blogs, Podcasting and RSS have personalized the media and given listeners and watchers a personal connection to the reports.

Technology has not only revolutionized news and how it is viewed, interactive technology is shaping the news.
