Rogers on iPhone, T-RackS

In brief: A representative of Rogers Wireless in Canada has said that the company will offer Apple's iPhone in Canada, IK multimedia has released a Universal update to its T-RackS audio software, and content-hungry Apple TV fans managed to crash in their rush to view the first feature length film formatted for the Apple TV, titled "Wages of Sin." MediaClick today launched a zero-cost self publishing option for authors that includes a free listing on eBay, and Data Robotics has unveiled a new external hard drive enclosure that automatically detects as well as formats up to four 3.5-inch SATA drives. A recent CBC report stated that Rogers Wireless in Canada had not announced plans to carry Apple's iPhone, but that report conflicts with two sources this week who spoke with Rogers representatives. One representative known only as Amanda said Rogers will offer the iPhone in Canada, but noted that the company is unsure of the exact release date.

A MacNN reader from Canada emailed Rogers Wireless customer service directly to inquire about the iPhone, and claims to have received a reply confirming that Rogers is actively working with Apple to launch the iPhone in Canada.

"Rogers is actively working with Apple to launch the iPhone in Canada as soon as possible and will be the exclusive provider of the iPhone in Canada," the email read.

"Please be advised that Rogers will be offering the iPhone exclusively in Canada [...] Other Canadian wireless carriers will not launch the iPhone, Rogers will be the only Canadian wireless carrier to offer the iPhone."

IK releases T-RackS 1.3

IK Multimedia has released T-RackS 1.3, an update to its audio software that is fully Pro Tools 7 compliant. The latest release runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and is compatible with Cubase 4. The Universal update to T-RackS is available for free, and the software is priced at $400 for new users.

Mac fans crash

Waves of Apple TV fans managed to crash the servers as they flocked to view the new feature film that is considered by many to be the first independent feature length film formatted with Apple TV in mind. The movie, Wages of Sin, is priced at $3.99.

Self publishing, automated external enclosure

MediaClick today launched a free self publishing option for authors that includes a free listing on eBay. The option combines a podcast, e-learning course, and multimedia presentation called a "PocketBook" via a trial version of software developed by the company.... The new Drobo external drive enclosure by Data Robotics automatically detects and formats up to four 3.5-inch SATA drives of any capacity, handling numerous maintenance tasks automatically such as creating redundancy and sensing as well as repairing data corruption.

    Still not official

    Until Rogers officially announces a partnership and issues a press release, everything else is conjecture.

    I don't care how many Rogers phone monkeys tell people what they want to hear. CSRs are not in the loop when it comes to corporate planning and forecasting.

    The only reason there's been so much confusion and hoopla about Rogers/iPhone is because news sources such as MacNN quote bloggers spouting hearsay in order to drive traffic to their site, as actual "news" sources.
