Tech news bites from around the web

Tech-based news bites from across the web

While Apple’s hardware sales may have slowed recently, the iTunes store is pulling in some serious coin – it broke sales records in Q3. Proof that people are paying for their content. Not everyone looks to Torrents for their music and video. Via @billboardbiz

Engadget’s online magazine, Distro, celebrates its 100th issue. Their 100 all-time favourite gadgets article is a lot of fun. Brings back memories. How many of these do you remember? Via @engadget

Should I or shouldn’t I? Do you unplug from social media when on vacation? Do you leave your tablets and smartphones at home?

Or go off the grid? Via @mashable
