We went easy on you this first time, prepare for the worst.

Apple Announcement - DRM Free iTunes!

Apple have announced that iTunes will be DRM free and that for limited time you can upgrade your purchases to iTunes Plus (their DRM free and higher quality) tracks for 20p per single track and a reduced rate for albums.

In hardware announcements they have brought out a 17" aluminum 'unibody' MacBook Pro which has a controversial irremovable battery. They claim that the battery will last 8 hours and can be discharged and recharged 1000 times without degradation.

In software Apple have announced iWork '09 and iLife '09. The iLife '09 suite includes some really cool new features. If you have a Mac with iLife I would recommend that you check it out.
