Don’t fret yet, you can access the iTunes store from a web browser by visiting this Appscot app store link. The online link makes it easier to browse the app store from any web browser of your choice.

Last night Apple’s Rock and Roll Event took place at San Francisco. The expectations were high from this event as it usually is with any other Apple event. The event specifically marked the return of Steve Jobs – the man behind Apple. The hopes were so high from Apple’s event and people were so hungry for getting the updates as fast as possible that popular sites like Twitter, Gizmodo were capping out. So was the event a success or failure in terms of people’s expectations? According to me, the event was one of the most disappointing Apple event in recent times.
First of all, Apple only increased the capacity of their iPod line-up along with a price cut and updated the hardware of iPod Touch and iPod Nano and the most shocking part was the inclusion of a video camera in iPod Nano but nothing in the iPod Touch. Apple had to take such a tough decision to protect the sale of iPhone but I guess this move from them surely disappointed a lot of their fans. Secondly Apple did not update the iPod Shuffle with dedicated keys after they excluded all the hardware keys from it and added Voice based navigation on it.
The best part of the event though has to be the return of Steve Jobs, the price cut on the iPod line-up especially on the iPod Touch making it priced at 199$, and of course iTunes 9 which comes with great new features like App Management, Genius Playlist etcetera and iPhone OS 3.1.
Yes! Its official now. Zune HD will be launched next month and it will battle for the market share with iPod Touch 3rd Generation which will also be released around that time. The Zune HD features a OLED 3.3inch touchscreen and the processing power is provided by the Nvidia Tegra Processor. The Personal Media Player also features an inbuilt HDMI port so that you can directly connect it to your TV and also has the ‘standard’ features including Wi-Fi, a Web Browser and an HD Radio Tuner.
Zune HD will be launched in 16GB and 32GB models and will cost 219.99$ and 289.99$ respectively. The Zune HD definitely looks stellar and it will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the 3rd Generation iPod Touch. The biggest advantage which the iPod Touch enjoys over the Zune HD is the App Store which has more than 55,000 applications and games available for the iPod Touch.

When I heard about the public beta for LogMeIn for the iPhone, I knew that I–a current LogMeIn user–needed to get in on it.
LogMeIn is a remote access client that allows you to connect to your computer from anywhere in the world (with an internet connection.)
Needless to say, the beta didn’t disappoint me and LogMeIn Ignition was released for the iPhone yesterday (December 16.) At a whopping $29.99, this will probably be the most expensive app you’ll have on your phone. In this review, I’ll show you why it’s worth every penny and serves as a priceless replacement for using Safari to access LogMeIn online.
