It’s coming down to the wire: will Apple have the necessary rights in place by next week in order to launch its planned streaming music service at WWDC? According to various leaks from music publishers over the last couple of days, it appears Apple’s plan is coming together. The New York Times says that Apple is close to having all the major music labels on board for recorded music rights, but there are two who still have not signed on completely : Apple has signed a deal with the Universal Music Group for its recorded music rights, but not for music publishing — the part of the business that deals with songwriting. Over the weekend, Apple also signed a deal with the Warner Music Group for both rights. It is still in talks with Sony Music Entertainment and Sony’s separate publishing arm, Sony/ATV. The WWDC keynote starts at 10 a.m. PT Monday , so Apple has about five days to get all the necessary deals in place so it can announce a full library of streaming music that potential users would expect. Apple has been in these situations before — most notably with ebook publishers right before the launch of the iPad — and Eddy Cue, SVP of Internet Services, has come through. Details about what Apple is building — a streaming, radio-like service to augment its paid download iTunes service — have been leaking out since late last year. But one of the major aspects is still uncertain: pricing. Bloomberg Businessweek ‘s latest report indica

GOP House Representative Michele (Crazy Eyes) Bachmann, announced on Wednesday that she would not seek a fifth term in Congress next year stressing the fact that it was not because she may have improperly used money raised by one of her House-affiliated political action committees to help her failed presidential bid and the fact that she’d probably lose anyway. “I have decided next year I will not seek a fifth Congressional term,” she said in a video on her campaign Web site. “This decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign or my former presidential staff,” she said adding. “My decision was not in any way influenced by any concerns about my being re-elected to Congress, if I ran I would again defeat the individual who I defeated last year.” Yeah, right. Whatever the reason. Good riddance to insane anti-gay rubbish. (Although I do hope that they hang her crazy ass out to dry.) Here are Michele Bachmann’s top ten anti-gay statements via The New Civil Rights Movement: “It’s part of Satan I think to say that this is “gay.” It’s anything but gay.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004. “If you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage . It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November

Over at Fox News, Chris Wallace and Brit Hume are musing about President Obama's aims on national security. What exactly does he hope to accomplish before leaving office in January 2017? Let's listen in: Chris Wallace: It's been suggested that that's exactly what the president wants to do. He wants to leave a different national security structure, different rules of the road, different limits, for the next president than what he inherited when he came in. Brit Hume: Not only what he inherited, but what he made generous use of for the purposes of fighting this conflict. There's an odd quality, Chris, to this whole thing. And it its almost like he's saying with regard to the drone policy, 'We need something to stop me before I kill again.' You see that in his support — on an unrelated matter — of this shield law for journalists. He's carried out these oversteps in pursuing journalists who are doing their jobs. And now he says, 'We need a shield law,' as if to say, a law to protect them from us. I think it's peculiar. I admit to being a bit puzzled myself, if for slightly different reasons. It's perfectly understandable to serve in a position, appreciate its power, and believe it should be limited by outside constraints, even when they'd constrain you. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both felt that way at times. If Pres. Obama feels that way about a shield law, good for him. And it isn't as if he personally approves every i

With the reveal of the next Microsoft console coming tomorrow, there’s probably a larger portion of people than Microsoft would want to acknowledge who still shudder at the mere mention of the name Kudo Tsunoda, creative director of the company’s Kinect add-on for the Xbox 360. While I wouldn’t call Kinect an abject failure, it certainly did not live up to the hype nor the potential of the accessory. I fear a forced feeding of Kinect 2 or more motion controls that aren’t necessarily wanted in the 360′s successor system. While there are problems that any new hardware faces, I earnestly hope that Microsoft has considered some lessons from its Kinect past. Do not sell what you do not have Perhaps one of the biggest barriers to full-on Kinect adoption was that we believed — or at least hoped — that Microsoft was offering a controller-less PlayStation Move/Nintendo Wii control scheme. “You are the controller,” we were told. Unfortunately, the delay between movement and onscreen action was a little too noticeable to be as fun or connected for what serious gaming requires. While anticipation could be negotiated in lighter fare like Kinect Adventures, the lag between a person’s actions and the resulting onscreen acknowledgement dooms any game needing immediate, precise movement. In an ideal world, motion controls for Tiger Woods seem like it could or should be a golfer’s dream — an off-season way to stay sharp and hone and improve real w

The midweek edition of the Morning Jolt features a big roundup of the coming storm of Obamacare, further evidence that the IRS isnât good at math, and this point about what happens when a very comfortable administration suddenly finds that their old spin and excuses donât work anymore: BOOM: The Implosion of the Obama Excuses for the Scandal Parade Just how bad has it gotten for the Obama administration? Not even his old spokesman Robert Gibbs can say his boss is handling this stuff well . Former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs â now an MSNBC contributor â explained to Andrea Mitchell this afternoon that President Obama made White House Press Secretary Jay Carneyâs job more difficult due to his passive response to the scandals surrounding his administration Carney would have had an easier time defending the president, suggested Gibbs, if the President had spoken out on the IRS scandal over the weekend. âThe problem is this â the tenor of this briefing would be different if the president had spoken about this on Saturday or Sunday and not on Monday,â Gibbs explained shortly after Carney struggled to answer reporters questions in the White House Press Briefing. Gibbs added that President Obama sounded like he was âlosing patienceâ with the issue âwhich is what I do with my 9-year-old.â Gibbs explained that Obama should have used âmore vividâ language and proposed a tough commission to look
