  • Some time recently Michael Brook’s official website has expanded with a full discography, newsletter, and store.
  • Joseph Arthur’s official site has video of him performing "Slide Away" on The Late Show With David Letterman on October 10th.
  • Steve Jobs must be in a romantic mood; every metaphor he musters to dismiss Doo-Doo Brown Zune in Newsweek involves a girl (spotted on Apple Insider):

    And on the possibility of the iPod losing its appeal amongst competing products:

    “That’s like saying you don’t want to kiss your lover’s lips because everyone has lips,” he said. “It doesn’t make any sense.”
