iTunes: The New Digital Newstand

Apple is now telling media companies to forget about the way they’ve been doing business for decades. There are new rules in its digital newsstand.

As one of the most popular programs for managing music and video content on a personal computer, Apple's iTunes software has become an indispensable part of our digital life. Version 10 of iTunes brings a handful of enhancements to Apple's ubiquitous media software, though notably absent is a much-anticipated cloud music service follow-up to LaLa. By far the biggest change to the jukebox is the addition of a social functionality called Ping.

iTunes is a proprietary digital media player application, used for playing and organizing digital music and video files. The application is also an interface to manage the contents on Apple's iPod and iPhone lines, as well as the iPad.

iTunes can connect to the iTunes Store via the Internet to purchase and download music, music videos, television shows, iPod games, audiobooks, eBooks, podcasts, feature length films and movie rentals (not available in all countries), and ringtones (only used for iPhone and iPod Touch(Fourth Gen.)). It is also used to download applications for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running iOS 2.0 or later. Most things you download from the iTunes Store have to be bought. However, you can directly download podcasts to your computer from the iTunes Store, free of any charge.
