Unless you've been buried under a stack of CDs lately, you've probably heard about the Apple announcement in San Francisco on April 28, 2003. I've published an article covering the details of the new iPods, iTunes 4, and the Apple Music Store, including photos from the event and sound clips of Steve Jobs talking.
These updated tools are good news for DJs of all levels. The new docks for the iPods have "line out," iTunes has Rendezvous library sharing and the AAC codec, and if you have an Intrnet connection while on the job, you can fulfill just about any request for 99 cents US.
Things just seem to keep getting better in this area.
