Remains of the Day: The letter two

Apple and Sony are going head-to-head--or ear-to-ear?--over music licensing, Phil Schiller posts a tweet and the Internet goes wild, and a former Apple rival joins Cupertino in taking on a new threat. The remainders for Thursday, March 7, 2013 can't read or write.

Apple's Internet Radio Service Said to Be Delayed (New York Times)

Apple Developing System For Reselling and Loaning iTunes Content

The iOS Alphabet (Twitter)

26 letters in the alphabet, 26 spots on the iPad's home screen. Coincidence? Joe Kissell thinks not.
