Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know that you're right with the news on Orange and their App to stream TV on the iPhone or iTouch. It says that Orange already contacted Apple and submitted a first version of their App but Apple refused to put it in the App Store due to some technical issues.

For the iTunes Plus updates, I can only say that it worked for me. Although as they continue to upgrade the song library I notice that new songs are available for an iTunes Plus update by now. They always told that all the iTunes free songs of the week won't be in the Plus format.

So much for this episode, keep up the good work.
