Can iTunes® really deliver 1080p quality videos?

While unveiling the third generation Apple iPad, the company pushed a major update for its multimedia product known as iTunes. By and large, people use Apple iTunes to synchronize audios and videos on their devices. And for a long time, the software was lacking the support to play high-quality videos. Recently, the latest iTunes is out in the market and it is capable of showing high-quality video content and that too in 1080p. In fact, the video quality has exceeded the mark of 720p, keeping the file size intact. A big surprise came when the same format was compared with a 1080p Blu-ray video.

According to the analysis, it was certainly great to see the video playback in iTunes which was meeting the strength of a Blu-ray player. Since the test was carried out on a different hardware architecture, it was difficult to take the screen images. Therefore, few snaps were clicked to identify the real aspect ratio. At the first instance, you might experience that Blu-ray videos are far better but images captured in iTunes 1080p cannot be ignored. iTunes does exhibit the similar color quality as seen in its opponent. However, the updated version of iTunes lacks few features, such as commentaries, uncompressed audio tracks, and better noise compressing facility.

Celebrate Frank Sinatra’s Birthday with iTunes®

“I’m for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniel.”
–Frank Sinatra

The world was introduced to the term “The Screaming-girls Phenomenon” when this man took the stage. He entertained the world for six decades. He gracefully dealt with all the adulation and criticisms that fame inevitably brings along. Yet this man left a legacy behind, which even the harshest critic would agree. He left his voice behind. He is Frank Sinatra. With 2000 songs and 150 albums, this man made sure that he remained a part of our lives.

For any reviewer, it would be a “next to impossible task” to rate his songs. He left a song for every mood and taste. However, here are five of the most popular songs that Sinatra crooned and took our hearts with. These songs can be downloaded from iTunes.

1) Strangers in the Night- If you know what love tastes like, “Strangers in the Night” will take you on a journey of love, from where there is no return. No doubt, even after decades it was first sung, “Strangers in the Night” still transcends all generations. This song was composed by Bert Kaemfert and lyrics were written by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder.

Sung by Sinatra in 1966, it won him the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and Grammy Award for Record of the Year. Interestingly, Sinatra despised the song and once called it a “Piece of shit.” This song, however, went to the number one spot in both Billboard Hot 100 and the Easy Listening chart.

2) My Way- This song is about a man, who is nearing his end, talking about his life. He talks about a life where he has crossed roads, been good, erred, but he did it all his own way. Written by Paul Anka, Sinatra gave his voice to this song in December 30th, 1968. The song was originally sung in French and performed by Claude Francois. Anka heard it on a holiday. The melodic structure was slightly changed and lyrics completely altered. This song is said to be the most covered song in history.

The song touches the core of every human being as Sinatra sings-

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows –
And did it my way!

3) Summer Wind- This song is a tale of almost every broken heart. It evokes nostalgia and a longing for the bygone days. The song was composed by Heinz Mayer and the lyrics were written by Johnny Mencer. It was first recorded by Wayne Newton in 1965, which charted at number 78. Sinatra added his Midas touch, when he sung it in 1966. It peaked at number twenty five on Billboard pop singles and number one on the Easy Listening Chart. It was first incorporated in Sinatra’s album, “Strangers in the Night.”

4) Come fly with me- The song talks about a lover’s dream, inviting his beloved to exotic locations like Bombay, Peru and Ac apulco Bay. Composed by Jimmy Van Heusen and written by Sammy Cahn, it was released as the title track of Sinatra’s 1958 album by the same name. Later it became a part of Sinatra’s concert repertoire.

5) The way you look tonight- Originally performed by Fred Astaire, this song won the Academy Award in 1936. Sinatra sang this song, which talks about a beautiful love confession, in 1964. Anyone in love would love to sing it. Alas! Everyone does not have the voice Sinatra did.

All these songs and many more can be downloaded from here.

Yes! Frank Sinatra lived for decades in fame and public scrutiny. He was a man who was imperfect, just like all of us. He was no stranger to scandals- he was married four times and allegedly had links with the Mafia. But this man left a legacy that has lived through generations. This man left his voice behind. We owe many a moments to this man who crooned his heart on the stage and the audience swayed.

He celebrates his birthday on 12th December. All we can say is, “Happy Birthday Frank Sinatra! Thank you for the music we hold so dear to our hearts.”

How To Import Sound Clips Into The iOS Voice Memo App

At times, you might feel that you need something to note down a brilliant idea but you do not have pen or paper. For such occasions, you can use Voice Memo app from an iOS device like iPod, or an iPhone. Not all iOS devices support this app like users cannot use Voice Memo function in iPad and, iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano. It is only available for the latest iPhone and iPod models.
A Voice memo is an application which allows users to record any important message and play it back whenever required.
Users can keep all the recorded memos in an organized manner by selecting labels.
There is one more cool use of this application; users can import MP3 files into a Voice Memo app.
For this, users need to use iTunes to import voice recording and sound clips. These sound clips and voice notes can be made with any device as these files can be converted and imported into iTunes and then can be marked as Voice Memo. Finally these Voice Memos can be synchronized with iPhone or iPods as well.

Here are some of the simple steps to import sound clips into the iOS Voice Memo app:

Step1: Firstly, you need to convert the desired sound clips into M4A file format. You can use Adapter app for converting files in M4A format and this app is compatible for both Mac and Windows operating systems.

Although, iTunes can import WAV and MP3 files and sync it with iPhone without any problem, but when you try to sync the iPhone next time, it will not detect those MP3 or WAV files and those sound clips will not be shown in Voice Memo app. This is the main reason why we need to convert the files into M4A format.

Step2: Once the Adapter app is downloaded, launch the application. Now, drag and drop the desired sound files onto the app and select the desired location of the converted files and change the output format as M4A. Now click on Start conversion.

Step3:

Once the conversion process is completed, you need to import the converted files into iTunes. You can simply drag the files and drop into iTunes or you can select the file by clicking on File menu and then select Add library option.

Step3: After the file selection and import is completed, you need to make sure that the Media kind option is changed to Voice Memo.
Right click on the desired file and then select the Get Info option. Now go to Options tab and then change the Media Kind from music to Voice memo.
Pres OK to confirm the changes. This process has to be repeated for all the files you want to use as Voice Memo.

Step4: Once the above mentioned steps are completed, you can sync the files with your iPhone.
For this, your iPhone must be connected with the computer. Select the Music Tab and check the option “Include Voce Memos” and then click next. This process will sync all the music files including the voice memos which you have recently added.
