  • Bowie at Beeb: Best of BBC Radio 68-72

    • 10 out of 10
    • David Bowie
    • The companion CD to a BBC television concert, BBC Radio Theatre has some of the best renditions of many of Bowie's best songs throughout his career. "I'm Afraid of Americans" is substantial

  • Abnormal Anonymous

    • 8 out of 10
    • Congo Norvell
    • Very few albums manage to capture snapshots of a quality of life in the manner that Congo Norvell's sophomore record, "Abnormals Anonymous," does.

      Comparisons to the Velvet Underground are

  • Mezzanine

    • 6 out of 10
    • Massive Attack
    • "Black Milk" knocks me off my feet in this collection of moody and eclectic songs. Massive Attack uses samples and keyboards in a very unique way, but not all the songs pack the same punch.

  • Every Day: The Best of the Verve Years

    • 8 out of 10
    • Joe Williams
    • Joe Williams was Figure Two in my three-man education in singing. A brilliant vocalist, scatter, and interpreter of jazz and blues, Williams produces music that's totally unique, yet sounds so effortl
  • Jagged Little Pill (Acoustic)

    • Alanis Morissette

iPO Quick Tip

iPhone: Wi-Fi, Sans Phone

Apple's iPhone includes an Airplane Mode feature that shuts off the phone, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, essentially turning your combination iPod and smartphone into an iPod touch with a built-in camera. If you want Wi-Fi active for the full-on iPod touch experience, however, Apple has you covered.

Enable Airplane Mode to shut off phone, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

To disable your iPhone's Bluetooth and cell phone radios, but leave Wi-Fi on, do this:

  • Tap Settings and then tap the Airplane Mode switch to shut off the phone and Bluetooth. Wi-Fi shuts off too, but we'll fix that next.
  • Now Tap Wi-Fi
  • Tap the OFF switch to reactivate Wi-Fi.

You can turn Wi-Fi on even when Airplane Mode is active

Activating Airplane Mode and then re-enabling Wi-Fi is handy if you are on a flight that offers wireless Internet access. You can disable the phone features that are prohibited in the air, but still use Wi-Fi to connect to the in-flight wireless network.

This is also useful if you are traveling overseas and don’t want to activate the phone in order to save the cost, but still have access to a wireless connection.
