Now that more and more people are switching from PC to Mac more and more people are losing their iTunes libraries. CopyTrans TuneSwift from WindSolutions solves this problem easily and efficiently. The program has an easy to follow, simple UI from which you can choose to backup, restore, or transfer your iTunes library and all you need is an external hard drive or flash drive. This video will demonstrate how the program works:
Well, this is the “big” announcement that we were waiting for. On Tuesday, November 16, 2010 Apple announced that The Beatles are now on iTunes. You can download your favorite songs from all 13 of The Beatles’ original studio albums or download the complete box set HERE.
Unfortunately, iOS 4.2 has not yet been released and most likely won’t until around the 24th of November. Of course, this does come as a disappointment to many of us but to those who love The Beatles and downloading music via iTunes, I suppose it’s a joyous day for them. Stay tuned to TechGeec.com for all of your most needed updates.
Today, August 25, 2010, Apple announced that they will be holding a music-based media event on September 1, 2010, much like they do every year. Here are some of the products we expect them to announce:
New touch-screen iPod shuffle
New iPod touch with front-facing (and possibly back-facing) camera to allow for use with Face Time over WiFi (to be used with email addresses as opposed to phone numbers), Retina Display, 1Gz processor (with maybe 512MB RAM), and better battery life.
iOS4 for iPad
iTV (revamped Apple TV) with it’s own App Store and might be the size of the iPhone 4 – Price: $99 USD
Sorry, no Verizon iPhone will be announced in September. If there will be one, it will be announced in January (most likely). Again, these are all just rumors so nothing is certain for sure, but these products will be very likely to be announced.

The visual experience of the record album returns with iTunes LP. Download select albums and experience a beautifully designed, interactive world right in your iTunes library on a Mac or PC — many are created by the artists. While you listen to your favorite songs, you can dive into animated lyrics and liner notes, watch performance videos, view artist and band photos, and enjoy other bonus materials. And become an even bigger fan.
A better way to share.
iTunes makes it easier to share music, movies, TV shows, and more. With Home Sharing, you can browse the iTunes libraries of up to five authorized computers in your house, import what you like, and automatically add new purchases made on any of the computers to your own library.
The Redesigned iTunes Store
Check out the new venue.
The world’s #1 music store is even better. With a beautiful redesign and refined navigation, the new iTunes Store makes it easy to explore songs, movies, TV shows, and more.
Now featuring: Special features.
When you buy select movies from the iTunes Store, you won’t get just a movie. You’ll get iTunes Extras — a world of special features you can experience right in your iTunes library. Watch interviews and trailers, view photos, and more on your Mac or PC.
Perfect mixes come automatically.
Meet Genius Mixes. This new feature searches your iTunes library, finds songs that go great together, and creates multiple mixes you’ll love. All automatically. These mixes are like channels programmed entirely with your music. You may discover songs you never knew you had — and rediscover forgotten favorites.
A simpler way to sync.
iTunes brings new, more flexible ways to sync your media from your computer to your iPhone or iPod. And it’s easier to organize all the apps on your iPhone or iPod touch, because now you can do it right in iTunes, right from your computer. Shop the App Store on your computer, iPhone, or iPod touch. Then go to your iTunes library to arrange (and rearrange) your apps and add (or delete) Home screens. iTunes automatically syncs your new Home screens with your iPhone or iPod touch.
Many Other Improvements
Refinements that rock.
iTunes brings you even better ways to manage and share everything in your library. You can make your Smart Playlists even smarter. You can save iTunes Store items you want to purchase later in a new wish list. You can buy ringtones of your favorite songs directly from the iTunes Store on your iPhone and assign a specific song to a contact. And if you’re an avid social networker, it’s easy to tout your favorite music, movies, and TV shows on Facebook and Twitter right from the iTunes Store.
Application Management – You will be able to visually manage your apps and rearrange them
Social Networking - Integration with Twitter, Facebook, and Last.fm
These are some great features but as of now, they are still just rumors. I do find, however, that the social networking feature is not needed all that much considering iTunes is still just a media player, much like WMP (Windows Media Player) or VLC media player. I do think that the integration of Blu-ray support is a very nice add-on. Because the are still not officially confirmed, we still do not know if this is true. Though if it is, I am curious if it would work on all computers or only on computers that have Blu-ray disc readers. The reason I point this out is because I doubt that if a certain computer does not have the hardware to read Blu-ray discs, what would make software on this computer capable of doing so?
There is no confirmed release date but it is believed to be released sometime near September when the new iPod Touch third generation will be announced (possibly).
