iTunes LP brings back old album extras

iTunes LP bring back old album extrasApple announced a new packaging concept called iTunes LP. Basically you can buy an entire album including things like liner notes artwork and other extras, making the package similar to old vinyl albums.

Too many of you aren’t old enough to remember albums, but when you bought the entire album you got a bunch of bonus material as an incentive to buy it. And iTunes LP is the digital version. The album covers are cool, plus pages for songs that feature lyrics, all that stuff. Even liner notes. We aren’t sure if it will mean more sales, but it’s cool.

iPhone-generated artwork hits the cover of The New Yorker

iPhone-generated artwork hits the cover of The New YorkerJorge Colombo’s cover for the June 1, 2009 issue of The New Yorker was created entirely in the Brushes iPhone app. Jorge told The New York Times that the device allows him to work “without having to carry all my pens and brushes and notepads with me.” And with results like the image above, what’s the difference really?

In this way an artist can also work without parking an easel and canvas along with art supplies in a public space, which allows him to be left alone. For this cover, he spent an hour on 42nd Street, and had no interruptions.
