Just last week, iTunes hack made top of the technology news when a Vietnamese app developer scooped (reportedly) 400 iTunes accounts to buy his own apps and bring them in the top 50 paid apps list in the ‘Books’ category. This time it’s a Chinese app developer who has managed to bring his app in the top paid app list in the ‘Travel’ category.

A shaggy iPhone developer found out that he can drive up the rankings of his crappy iPhone apps in the 'Books' category of App Store by hacking hundreds of iTunes accounts (It seems that all of these hacked accounts were from US) and buy his own apps through the hacked accounts. There are several iTunes account holders reporting that someone just purchased crappy apps from their accounts. This is the first time such a case of iTunes account hacking has surfaced and it's not yet clear how the app developer managed to hack so many account especially when iTunes is believed to be a secure platform.

For years there’s been speculation that Apple would supplement their $1/song (now $1.29) iTunes business with a monthly subscription service, but their upcoming plans are quite different and once again are positioning them to lead the digital music industry into a new era. Leveraging their ubiquitous iTunes software Apple plans to upgrade their users almost over night to a cloud music service in an ambitious move to beat Amazon and others to a cloud music service. Record labels are wary to give Apple even greater dominance which is why Apple’s new strategy is designed to sidestep new licenses from the major labels.

Right now, their new Cloud Player doesn't do all that much, we'll admit. In fact, we're sorry to say that it actually seems overwhelmed and broken. When trying to create a playlist, we just see the spinning circle. When we tried to play a track, all we got was a message: "transferring data from" Obviously, this app is nowhere near ready for primetime. It looks like a great idea, sure, but one that's only a pretty picture of what could be. We love that idea, though - an app for finding and playing tracks, discovering music, saving playlists, even creating smart playlists - all in the cloud.

Recently I tried to Sync my Outlook 2007 Contacts with iPhone through iTunes and got this error:

There had been doubts if Apple would ever allow a streaming music app to get listimageed on App Store but seems like it has learnt from it’s big mistakes it made recently regarding the Google’s app rejection story. 

Now you can search for your favorite tracks, create playlists and not only this, but download tracks to listen while you’re not connected to the internet. Seems much like the iTunes. It’s not.
