Apple iTunes gets even more virality

Facebook has just struck a new partnership with Apple to allow users to send digital iTunes gift cards to their myriad social networking friends.

Apple's iTunes platform has been added as a new choice for Facebook's emerging "Facebook Gifts" platform. The social service allows users to send digital presents to their family and friends, all without ever leaving the comfort of the Facebook interface.

The new addition of iTunes means it is now possible to send over a code for anywhere betwen $10 and $50 to friends, redeemable on the iTunes Store.

Other vendors that are available on Facebook Gifts are Hulu Plus, Pandora, and Rdio. The platform also recently gained new retail partners including Brookstone, Random House, Dean & Deluca, and BabyGab.

Among the various online commerce platform, "social commerce" is the one area that has actually seen a decline over last year. Online shopping is on the rise, mobile shopping is reaching record levels, but financial transactions initiated through social networks is actually on the decline.

So Apple's addition to Facebook Gifts probably won't generate any sort of hugely significant increase to either company's bottom line, but nevertheless, Apple will look like it is more connected to the average Internet user than every before.

The inclusion of iTunes to Facebook Gifts is effective immediately.

iTunes 12 introduces new look, less intuitive interface

Oct 24 2014 5:49am CDT | Source: Mac World

It’s been two years since the last major update to iTunes, with changes I called “the most radical alterations to the program’s interface since its inception.” I could use those same words to describe iTunes 12, which features yet another interface overhaul. But the other shock is that iTunes 12 is light on new features, just a Recently Added section in some views, and a new Get Info window, along with some minor changes to device syncing. It almost begs the question: Withou ...

U2 frontman Bono apologizes for auto downloads of 'Songs of Innocence'

While many users were happy to get a free album from iTunes, the recent promotion of U2's Songs of Innocence LP done through Apple -- where every iTunes user had a copy added to their past purchases list -- rubbed some listeners the wrong way. Bono, the lead singer for the group, has issued an apology for what he characterized as an overzealous move that resulted from a combination of "a drop of megalomania" and "deep fear" tha ...

‘Oops, sorry about that:’ Bono responds to ‘Songs of Innocence’ iTunes deal

Oct 14 2014 6:35pm CDT | Source: 9to5Mac

iTunes customers who didn’t watch Apple’s iPhone keynote last month were a bit surprised last month to discover that they suddenly owned a copy of U2’s new album “Songs of Innocence,” even though they’d never bought it. The band had partnered with Apple to add the album to every single iTunes account for free in what they called the largest album debut ever. iTunes users were less than thrilled at the arrangement, noting that the album was being automatically downloaded to their devices in man ...
