    • Man, there's nothing like good, old fashioned, rock and roll... add a bit of industry resentment to that with a double-shot of cynicism, and you get one of the best "new" rock bands going. This album

    • Mel Torm� & George Shearing
    • Of the three men who taught me how to sing, the last was Mel Torme. Apparently, Mel Torme is a joke to anyone more than a decade older than me, a living parody of a Vegas crooner. But I stumbled on th

    • Billy Miles
    • Take the voice of a young Billie Holiday and stuff it into a svelte, petite body with the face of an angel, and you have some idea of what it's like to experience the music of Billy Miles in her self-

    • Goldfrapp
    • On their latest CD, Supernature, Goldfrapp has put together a successful mix of 1980-era New Romanticism, German cabaret, and T. Rex glam that leaves you riveted even through the album's lulls. It's a great amalgam that sounds current without sounding at all dated.

Mobile Safari Usage Jumps 64% Since December

Usage of Apple’s Mobile Safari, the Web browser found on the iPhone and iPod touch, is on the climb with a 64 percent jump from December 2007 to March 2008 in the United States. According to data from StatCounter, Mobile Safari’s U.S. market share went from 0.14 percent in December to 0.23 percent in March.

Global usage for Mobile Safari was up, too, more than doubling from 0.03 percent of the market up to 0.08 percent during the same period.

The figures indicate that the browser is now the top mobile browser in the U.S., and the number two mobile browser world wide. The top mobile browser is currently Nokia’s with 0.25 percent of the global market.

StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen commented "The key message is that iPhone is more than living up to its claims of being a user friendly Internet browser, unlike many other cell phones."

Mobile Safari’s market growth is good news for Apple and iPhone users, but the numbers are still small compared to the desktop browser market. In February, for example, Safari held 5.7 percent of the market, while Firefox grabbed 17.27 percent, and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer took 74.88 percent.
