  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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)

    • 6 out of 10
    • Alanis Morissette
    • Ten years after the original release, comes the traditional celebratory acoustic re-recording. The album has held up remarkably well. While it is not as meaningful to me as it was when I was sixteen,
  • 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

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.
