iTunes University

I had some spare time the other day, so I opened up iTunes and went to the iTunes Store fore a quick look to see what it may have of interest.  I spotted a section of the store that I had heard about, but to which I had not paid much attention, iTunes University.  To my amazement, the iTunes U department had course and lecture offerings from some of the world’s top institutions of higher learning.  Among the schools represented: MIT, Oxford, Cambridg, Stanford, Duke,  and my own alma mater, the University of California at Berkeley.

The University section of the store included materials covering fields as disparate as the arts and political science, physics and foreign languages (although, I have heard some people say that physics is a foreign language to them).  I also found courses on history, mathematics,  philosophy, literature, education and rhetoric.  Stanford and Cornell even offered courses on Law.

The store has broken the offerings into thirteen general categories to facilitate finding what you seek.  The chosen categories:  “Business”, “Engineering”, “Fine Arts”, “Health & Medicine”, “History”, “Humanities”, “Language”, “Literature”, “Mathematics”, “Science”, “Social Science”, “Society” and “Teaching & Education”.

All of the courses I looked had were of recent vintages and none of the schools charged for their offerings.  Acquiring a course took little effort, simply clicking on it and telling it to download to iTunes.  Once in iTunes, you had the option of playing it on a computer or synching it to an iPhone/iPod.  The store offers another very convenient feature;  it allows you to download the entire course or selected lectures from the course.  Some of the courses continue to grow in terms of material and lectures.  The University allows you to subscribe to the course, so that iTunes can automatically download any new material for your use and enjoyment.

If you have not yet seen the iTunes U section of the iTunes Store, you should do so ASAP.  Download a few courses and learn something new.  Expand your horizons!

iPhone Apps

The number of people who have iPhones and do not make use of the Apps available in the iTunes Store App Store amazes me.  If you have an iPhone and have not taken a good look at the App Store, you should.  If you don’t have an iPhone yet, take a look at the App Store, it may convince you that it is time to get an iPhone or, at least, an iPod Touch.  The iTunes store reports that it now has over 15,000 apps available, some free, some that you have to buy.

The range of apps runs from amusement to business to productivity to travel to substantive legal and medical information.  For example, I keep apps that provide the California Evidence Code, Federal Rules of Evidence and FRCP on my iPhone.  While Apps do not exist for all codes or even for all states, there are Apps for several codes in many states.  Check the store out for your state codes.

For those of you studying for a bar exam, the Law in a Flash series provides summaries and study aids for Constitutional Law, Federal Income Tax, Evidence, Real Property, Future Interests, Wills & Trusts, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Corporations, Torts and Real Property.

Travel information abounds in the Apps Store.  I recently downloaded a number of additional Apps containing street maps, subway maps and general information about New York, in anticipation of a trip I will take there. New York is not the only city for which you can get travel information;  you can find it for many major cities throughout the world.  You can get information about restaurants (I like Zagat and UrbanSpoon the best).  You can get the local movie listings for wherever you happen to be in the US.

The bottom line:  Without the App Store, the iPhone was one of the best phones around.  With it, everything else pales in comparison.
