    So I just got a new macbook air and transfered over my music and apps from Time Machine. The problem I have now is that on my iphone I purchased some apps and music which aren't on the air. But to sync it says I have to erase the iphone. How the heck do I get my music and apps over without it erasing the new apps and music I bought?

    well for the music there are many programs out there. (senuti I think) But for the apps you are going to have download those on your new air. If you want to keep all app settings I think there is a way to use an earlier backup but I don't remember how to do that.

    To get you apps off the phone and into the "new" iTunes, connect your phone to iTunes, right click on your device in the left pane, and select "Download Purchases". That will transfer your apps and app data to iTunes.

    Awesome the apps updating is working great. I tried senuti but for some reason the songs I purchased on itunes are shaded which won't allow me to download them from the phone.
