An anonymous reader writes "As reported at TechCrunch, 'The iPhone is twice as reliable as the BlackBerry after one year of ownership, a new study by SquareTrade finds. SquareTrade, which sells extra warranties for cell phones and other devices, looked at the failure rates of 15,000 phones covered under its plans. The malfunction rate for iPhones after one year is 5.6 percent, compared to 11.2 percent for the BlackBerry and 16.2 percent for the Treo.' The full report (pdf) can be found at the SquareTrade site."

Comment: Missing from smart playlist filters (Score 2) 176

by Greg Titus (#19664719) Attached to: Privatunes Anonymizes iTunes Plus
The only problem with Apple including the name and email address in purchased music is that the iTunes UI won't let me filter on it for smart playlists! It's really useful information, and I want to be able to _use_ it to automatically separate the music that my wife buys from the music that I buy.
