Novell owns UNIX

In brief: Apple will likely benefit from a ruling passed down by a federal regarding UNIX, Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia's hit single "Glorious" is scheduled to launch August 19th on Apple's iTunes Store but is already available via Italy's own store, Nova Media has improved SMS as well as the Phonebook wizard in its Message2Net software, and three weeks remain for IK Multimedia's 2x1 FX Madness promotion. A federal judge has ruled that UNIX belongs to Novell, not SCO. The decision could help Apple as well as other companies that own UNIX copyrights while paving the way for broader UNIX and Linux usage.

Italian iTunes Store slip-up?

Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia is preparing to launch her new album titled "Glorious: the singles 1997-2007" in September of this year, and has plans to release her single track "Glorious" via Apple's iTunes store on August 19th. That track is already available (Italian) via Italy's iTunes Store, however, priced at 0.99.

Message2Net update, IK 2x1 promo

Nova Media has released Message2Net 1.2.3, a Universal Binary version of its easy SMS and phone book management software.... Three weeks remain for audio enthusiasts to take advantage of IK Multimedia's 2x1 FX Madness summer promotion; the company is offering customers who purchase one IK effects plug-in another plug-in for free.
