Apple's iTunes makes 'Friends' with Warner Bros.

Apple Computer's iTunes Music Store added six new shows from Warner Bros. Tuesday, including the first season of "Friends" and "Babylon 5."

Apple Computer's iTunes Music Store added six new shows from Warner Bros. Entertainment, including the first season of the hit show "Friends" and sci-fi series "Babylon 5."

Also added Tuesday were the first seasons of classic Warner Bros. cartoons "The Flintstones" and "The Jetsons." Warner Bros. also made available the pilot episode of a new DC Comics Inc. series "Aquaman," and highlights from the comedy show "MADtv"'s eighth, ninth, and tenth seasons. All episodes sell for US$1.99 each, and can be played on the iTunes application or on video-enabled iPods.

Tuesday also saw one of the biggest early opponents of digital music piracy finally make its catalog available online. The works of Metallica, one of the world's all-time best-selling hard rock acts, were uploaded onto iTunes, with each song selling for US$0.99. The group's early and vocal opposition to Napster's file-sharing software, before it was reincarnated as a legitimate rival to iTunes, gives Apple's service a further nod of legitimacy as the conduit of choice for legal digital music.

However, the group's 1993 three-CD live box set, "Live Sh*t: Binge and Purge," and its 1999 double-disc collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony, "S&M," were not included in Tuesday's releases, although single tracks appear as bonus tracks on some of the albums offered.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
