Unlimited downloads coming to iTunes?

IT'S FRIDAY, MARCH 4. I'M MARK LICEA, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. * APPLE IS IN TALKS WITH MAJOR RECORD LABELS TO GIVE CUSTOMERS UNLIMITED ITUNES DOWNLOADS. SO RIGHT NOW, YOU DOWNLOAD A SONG ONCE--- THEN YOU NEED TO CREATE COPIES TO SYNC ACROSS ALL YOUR DEVICES ON YOUR OWN,TYPICALLY THROUGH USB OR E-MAIL. IF AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN APPLE AND THE RECORD LABELS GOES THROUGH, CUSTOMERS WILL BE ABLE TO GRAB SONGS THEY'VE ALREADY PAID FOR FROM ANY DEVICE THROUGH THEIR ACCOUNT. BLOOMBERG SAYS THERE COULD BE AN AGREEMENT BY THE MIDDLE OF THIS YEAR. * MICROSOFT IS LAUNCHING A DAILY DEALS SERVICE THROUGH BING. USERS CAN FIND DEALS IN THEIR AREA ON BING AND BING MOBILE STARTING TODAY. RIGHT NOW THE SITE HAS ACCESS TO OVER TWENTY-THOUSAND UNIQUE OFFERS IN CITIES ACROSS THE US. THE SITE WILL ALSO ACT LIKE A PORTAL THAT PULLS FROM SOURCES LIKE GROUPON, LIVING SOCIAL, AND RESTAURANT.COM * THE LATEST OUT OF THE RUMOR MILL IS THAT BLACKBERRY MESSENGER IS COMING TO ANDROID AND IOS. BOY GENIUS REPORT SAYS RIM PLANS TO BRING THE SERVICE TO ANDROID THIS YEAR, AND THIS WOULD ALSO COME TO THE IPHONE AROUND THE SAME TIME. SPECULATION IS ALSO THAT THE SERVICE WOULD ALLOW TEXT MESSAGING, BUT NOT THE ABILITY TO SHARE PHOTOS, VIDEOS AND LOCATION. * IN OTHER ANDROID NEWS, NIELSEN IS REPORTING THAT THE ANDROID MOBILE OS BEAT OUT RIM BLACKBERRY AND APPLE IOS AS THE TOP MOBILE OS IN TERMS OF CONSUMER MARKET SHARE. IT STANDS AT 29 PERCENT, WHILE RIM AND APPLE ARE TIED AT 27. ALTHOUGH IF YOU BREAK IT DOWN BY MANUFACTERER MARKET SHARE, APPLE AND RIM, WHICH BOTH MAKE THEIR OWN OPERATING SYSTEMS ARE TIED FOR THE TOP. * IF YOU PURCHASED AN IPAD WITHIN 14 DAYS OF APPLE'S IPAD 2 ANNOUNCEMENT, YOU COULD BE GETTING 100 DOLLARS BACK ON YOUR FIRST GEN IPAD PURCHASE. THE COMPANY DIDN'T GIVE A SPECIFIED DATE, BUT THE CUT OFF SHOULD BE AROUND FEBRUARY 16TH. THE REFUND WILL BE APPLIED TO THE BUYERS CREDIT CARD AND APPLIES TO ALL VERSIONS OF THE FIRST GEN IPAD. YOU HAVE TO CALL APPLE CUSTOMER SERVICE TO GET THE REFUND, AND IN STORE PURCHASERS NEED THEIR RECEIPT WHEN THEY RETURN TO THE STORE. * WITH SONY'S NEXT GENERATION PORTABLE COMING OUT LATER THIS YEAR, IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THAT THE PSP GO GET A PRICE DROP. YOU CAN NOW SNAG THE PSP GO FOR 150$- BEFORE THIS IT WAS PRICED AT 200 DOLLARS. SONY ALSO SHAVED 40 DOLLARS OFF THE REGULAR PSP LAST WEEK. * THAT IS YOUR NEWS FOR THE DAY AND THAT WRAPS UP YOUR WEEK OF GETTING LOADED. I'M MARK LICEA FOR CNET AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.�
