iTMS Europe next month?

MacRumors cites this reuters news about Sony's ongoing pursuit to challenge Apple in Europe and expects Apple to sell songs in Europe for 1.29 EUR, which would be a disaster, as that's about 1.50 USD! Let's just hope that under no circumstances a song would cost more than 0.99 EUR, which still would be more than in the USA. I smell a "much too little, much too late and too expensive, anyway" kind of thing. But I certainly hope MR (and their sources) is wrong here.

A 'faster' Safari: Shiira?

You'll find a description and the download of this new browser here at MacUpdate. It's quite nice, and some people see it as faster than Safari. The feature set is similar, the look is uglier (but you can, it seems, load your own icons...). And the shortcuts for switching between tabs is not compatible with some international keyboards (such as my Swiss German one, sadly).

You'll find the project's homepage here.
