Tech Today: iTunes Match won't allow music streaming

With big news from Apple and the continued rise of the HP TouchPad, here's the tech news that broke after you logged-off.

iTunes Match won't stream to your device
The new Apple cloud music locker service iTunes Match won't stream music to your device in the same way that Spotify does, it will still require users to have music files stored locally. One of the presumed attractions for the forthcoming iTunes Match service was the ability to have your iTunes library available to you without filling up your drive. Apparently that won't be the case.

HP's Personal Systems boss says that tablets remain relevant.

Woman scammed into buying wooden iPad
A twenty-two year old woman thought she'd scored the bargain of a lifetime when she bought an iPad for $180. However, when she got the device home she discovered it was made out of wood. Perhaps she should have guessed something was awry when she was approached in a McDonalds car park by two dudes claiming to have bought in bulk and passing savings onto customers.
