X-Factor Suing iTunes
Co-host of the British talent show X-Factor Simon Cowell is considering suing Apple for a failure to cope with demand after posting the music from winning contestant Leon Jackson, according to a claim from The Sun. The newspaper claims to have contacts within Jackson's representing label Sony BMG who say that iTunes UK effectively collapsed moments after the artist's "When You Believe" single went on sale, preventing visitors from buying the music until the issue was resolved 15 hours later. The overload may have cost Jackson and Sony BMG valuable sales in the immediate wake of the show's ending despite indications the single will still be a strong seller.

Safari security update
Apple on Friday updated its newest security update (released earlier this week) to correct an issue that caused its Safari browser to crash on some websites. Although it didn't specify the exact nature of the problem that was introduced with the update, the company said that Security Update 2007-009 v1.1 (Tiger, Leopard) is now available for Mac OS X v10.5.1 and Mac OS X v10.4.11 and said that the update specifically addresses an issue introduced in Security Update 2007-009 that causes an unexpected termination of the Safari application when browsing to certain web sites. "There is no change to the security content provided in Security Update 2007-009," Apple wrote in its documentation. Apple said that the new Security Update 2007-009 v1.1 will install over Security Update 2007-009. The update is "recommended" to correct the Safari issue and systems that have not yet installed Security Update 2007-009 only need to install Security Update 2007-009 v1.1. Apple also updated its Safari for Windows beta to fix the same issue.
