If you have a family member who still uses and relies on a landline, you might want to get them a Ringboxx from Home Phone Tunes so they can get in on the ringtones action. Ringboxx lets you program ringtones for individual callers on their landline, just like you can do on your fancy mobile phone. The user can purchase tunes from the Home Phone Tunes Ringtone Store and then they’ll know instantly who’s calling without having to use caller ID. Somehow I don’t think they are going to sell many units, but I look forward to more grannies out there using rap ringtones. Check out a video below.

Steve Jobs and Apple announced today that they will have a new version of iTunes which will be released tonight that supports ringtones for the iPhone.
The new version of iTunes will have a little “bell” icon next to the songs that can be created into a ringtone (about 500,000 initially) and will let you select your own, up to 30 second excerpt from the song to create your ringtone.
