Video/MP3: Chappo “Come Home” in iTouch ad

Date September 1, 2010

Apple just got done announcing the new iPod Nanos, Shuffles, and Touches, iTunes 10 (with last.fm, uhh, i mean, Ping) and Apple TV(with Netflix streaming!). We also got a couple new iPod ads which are usually pretty good sources for new music (hey there Feist, Submarines, Chairlift ). You can watch the new iPod Touch ad above and download the accompanying song [...]

iPad commercial / The Blue Van’s “There Goes My Love”

Those of you who use Facebook have undoubtedly noticed some changes in the site layout lately.  It seems like quite a few people have gotten together to voice their hatred of the new layout.  A couple of groups have over a million members, and some people are threatening to migrate to Myspace if they don’t [...]
