Free Music Downloads Via iCoke

Just thought I’d post this tidbit of info :

Canadians can redeem iCoke Points for music downloads from chooseyoursongs.com, in increments of five download credits for 5000 iCoke points.

Specially marked Coke, Sprite and Nestle products contain codes that can be redeemed online at icoke.ca for 500 to 1000 points each individual product purchase.

Basically you get 500 points per individual specially marked 591 ml or 2 L Coca Cola, Coca Cola Zero, Diet Coke product purchase, 500 points per individual specially marked 591 ml Sprite product purchase and 1000 points when you purchase specially marked 12 packs of Nestle iced tea (Zero and Green Tea versions included).

If you join iCoke’s mailing list you can also redeem 3500 points instead for this 5 song download credit package.

Please note that to redeem the points and download the music you will need to register at iCoke and chooseyoursongs.com. And the later is mostly limited to Universal Music Canada artists so you should probably browse the site.

Sheet Music/Music Book Source Listing Added

I’ve added a rough version of my sheet music and music book listings to the blog. It will of course be updated at random.

Whoops !

It appears that a software engineer at Apple forgot their test version of the new iPhone 4G at a bar in Redwood City, California.

This device was found by a blogger for Gizmodo, who explains how he found the iPhone in this blog entry. He also reviews the device in this blog entry.

Oh well. At least STATE SECRETS weren’t involved ! :-/

International Record Store Day

I’ve expanded my vinyl source listings in honor of International Record Store Day. But unfortunately I had accidentally put the wrong date in so I’ve had to edit this blog entry.

Well, better late than never, eh ? 🙂

Billboard Predicts Possible EMI Outcomes

EMI is still working to keep itself out of Citigroup’s hands. But according to Showbizz411 this company is having a hard time because some of their contacts with artists like The Beetles, Pink Floyd, Coldplay and Norah Jones include clauses that prevent them licensing out many of their recordings.

If they had been able to proceed Universal Music Canada would have been licensed to distribute EMI’s catalog in Canada. But it appears that option fell through, resulting in additional predictions by Billboard, which can be read here.

iPad Delayed For Canada

The iPad’s international release has been delayed to “late May”, which includes Canada.

I guess they’re going to fix the wireless and app issues. Let’s hope they’ll get flash in there as well.

Apple will be taking Canadian pre-orders from May 10th via their official site.
