Apple’s iTunes Music Store, which opened 10 years ago this Sunday, exists for one major reason: Napster.
By late 2002, the Recording Industry Association of America had sued the company successfully for copyright infringement, and the courts forced Napster to shut down.
The world’s biggest record labels, fearing the power these services gave to consumers, did everything they could to virtually “lock” CDs and online music files, so they wouldn’t spread like free MP3s.
Steve Jobs, Apple’s founder and chief executive, saw Napster, MP3s and the Internet a different way. By late 2002, he believed music fans clearly wanted to download songs they liked in an affordable and easy way, but during this period, the record industry had no affordable, easy and legal option allowing this to happen.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19 found in a boat at 76 Franklin Street in Watertown, MA.
Law Enforcement said there was a gun battle of 20 rounds of bullets. This footage clearly shows he was lying down the entire time and that a bomb was exploded on the front of the boat.
A grisly post-mortem photo of one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers appears to have been taken early today after medical personnel turned the body over to law enforcement officials. The image
Photo of White Muslim Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, does not match the description that law enforcement fed to the media. He clearly does not have a bomb wound in his stomach. He is from Chechnya which is in the Caucasus mountains south of Russia.
White Muslim, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19 was captured last night in Watertown, MA inside a boat in someone’s backyard. He was not found during the lockdown search, because the house with the boat in the backyard was outside of the 20 square block search area. He is from Chechnya which is in the Caucasus mountains south of Russia.
4-19-2013 Brothers from near Chechnya are suspects
One suspect dead, the other on the run in the Boston Marathon bombings of 4-15-2013.
My job still wants me to go to work today, even though the entire Boston subway system is shut down. I will either walk or take a cab and get reimbursed. One of the suspects shot an MIT police officer near Kendall Square subway station on the red line last night.
The suspects have been identified as brothers from near Chechnya. They had a shoot out and another explosion in Watertown, borders Cambridge. They are going west of Boston with their terror. I would love to know how they legally got in the USA.
*Governor Deval Patrick has officially shut down all of Boston, Cambridge and Watertown. I am not going to work.

We Still Live Here- As Nutayunean
#SheDocs Film Festival through March 31
We Still Live Here- As Nutayunean is a documentary about the Aquinnah and Mashpee Wampanoag tribe of Southeastern Massachusetts learning their language. Anne Makepeace, the filmmaker, is a descendant of the Mayflower. Jessie Littledoe Baird is the woman who was spoken to in a dream, about being the one to bring her tribe’s language back. The first bible printed in Cambridge, MA in the 1600s was in the Wampanoag language. Jessie Littedoe spent a year fellowship at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in linguistics and ended up getting a Master’s Degree. Using that bible and pre-1800 land documents in Wampanoag, she has brought her language back to life after over 150 years of not being spoken.
About 25% of all Native Americans in Massachusetts and Rhode Island are mixed with African since the 1600s. It was a means of tribal survival due to disease, war, and Native American men sold into slavery to Bermuda and the Caribbean.
What happened to Nextcat!? I was a member from 2007 to 2010 and then it just shut down without warning.
Semi Precious Weapons are baaaaack! “Can’t pay my rent but I’m bleeping gorgeous”. I saw them open for Lady Gaga in Boston in 2010 on her Monster Ball tour. A lady next to me thought he was a woman. It is fascinating all these bands that have gay or bisexual men as the lead singer and the rest of the band are straight men. Semi Precious Weapons are Berklee grads.
