    Apple revamps iTunes Extras, adding it to Apple TV now and iOS 8 in the fall

Previously, only desktop users of iTunes could view extras that came with movies purchased from Apple, things like production stills and deleted scenes.

    Apple Sneaks Even More Color into its iPod Lineup

    Apple seems to be in a colorful mood this Fall, adding a new option to their iPod line.  Since the announcement of the iPhone 5s and 5c, the iPod Touch, Nano and Shuffle are now also available in the same “space grey” color announced for the new iPhone 5S; the color replaces the darker “slate” shade which we have become used to seeing on the iPhone 5 and iPad mini.
