    • The Life Pursuit is a sort of Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. You get Belle & Sebastian's peanut butter (its wistful, often irresistible pop) dipped in a 'Have A Nice Day!' and glam 70s chocol

    • This album bears every flavor of genius from the five records that came before. It is, I believe, the band's finest. With Physical Graffiti, Zep came raging back to their musical home territory -- har

    • "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.

    • Mystics Anonymous is the brainchild project of Jeff Steblea, a fantastic songwriter and good friend of mine, as well. In fact, I even played the drums on all but one of the tracks on this album. Jef

Apple Job Listings Hint at iPhone Features

Apple is looking to hire programmers for its iPhone development team, and the job listings may offer some hints at what's in store for the next iPhone model. The job openings suggest the third generation iPhone will sport a substantially faster processor along with video support.

The first listing, titled "High Performance/Low Level Programmer," says the coder will be tasked with "improving various subsystems running on iPhone OS," and requires an understanding of the ARM architecture, its NEON vector unit, Intel SSE and PowerPC Altivec. Since Apple is looking for familiarity with NEON, that suggests the third generation iPhone will use an ARMv7 processor, which can run substantially faster than the iPhone 3G's ARMv6 chip.

The "Embedded Video Processing & Analysis" job listing is soliciting for a developer that can help with embedded video processing technologies, and is familiar with "real-time media and networking applications" -- a potential tip off that Apple is adding video capture and streaming support to the next iPhone, and a feature that's been suggested in several rumors.

Of course, simply listing job openings doesn't guarantee that specific features will show up in the next iPhone model, or in any Apple products, but it does add some support to third generation iPhone rumors that have been circulating around the Internet.

Forget that stuff, what we really need is an FM tuner and a user replaceable battery. /snark
