KUOW Links for Oct. 3, 2007

Vpr0005470 P3Howdy, loyal listeners! (If you don't know what I'm talking about, visit KUOW's Web page for Sound Focus--a show on which I appear weekly--listen to streaming media or subscribe to the podcast, and donate! It's fundraisin' season.)

This week, we talked about the Starbucks/Apple deal for iTunes access and what's playing in the stores; Amazon.com's protection-free MP3 beta store; and coffee mugs that have Pantone colors printed on them, coffee colors printed inside, or, in one I didn't mention, typefaces on the mug combined with coffee colors.
