When the Grammys weren’t busy pairing Cee-Lo with Muppets, they were busy making Apple history. Train’s song “Hey, Soul Sister” won Best Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals—and said song was recorded exclusively for the band’s iTunes Session EP.

If you’re going to play “Hey, Soul Sister” to woo your lady friend this Valentine’s Day, you might want to grab the New York City Health Department’s Condom Finder app. The app guides Manhattanites to the nearest city-sponsored free condoms. Remember, kids: practice safe multi-touching.
If you’re alone this Valentine’s Day, perhaps your neighbors aren’t. We’re not saying you should spy on distant romancing couples using a telephoto lens for your iPhone, but it’s our duty to report that you could.
