Toast 5 Titanium Adds Video CD Support -- When Apple announced the CD and DVD burning capabilities of its new Macs, we wondered what it mean for Roxio's Toast, the current standard in media burning. Now, Roxio has released Toast 5 Titanium, a new version that can burn Video CDs which can be played on most DVD Video players. The new version also improves its MP3 Disc, Data CD, Audio CD, and CD Copy formats, includes background burning and a new interface, and adds support for Apple's iMovie and iTunes. Toast 5 Titanium is now shipping for $90. [JLC]
