It has been fairly heavily trailed that Apples is going to sunset the current itunes programme, and split out music, TV/film and podcasts into separate apps, as already happens on ios. So how we are feeling – good riddance to what is a pretty bloated piece of progamming, or oddly sentimental about the potential end of such classics as ‘View as artists’ ‘Create new smart playlist’ and ‘sort by songs’. Having gone through the near-death experience of losing a decade’s worth of playcounts I am kind of more relaxed about it in terms of stats. However, it’s still insanely useful for those of us who burn CDs – and can’t help feeling that will go too. There are many around here who still use ipods, and I wonder what it will mean for them.
Today, January 30, it’s been 50 years since The Beatles played on the roof of their Apple office to create a proper ending to their Let It Be movie. It would take close to another year and a half before it, and the album, was released.
The lovely thing is you can see them enjoying themselves, each other and the music. They would never play together in public again.
A bit of fun to brighten up a dull and dreary Friday. Although it’s been around for a while, I hadn’t seen this, so maybe you haven’t either. It made me cry tears of joy – and I love Apple
Can anyone shed any light on the logic behind Apple’s pricing structure hopefully highlighted in the attached pic? Beyond me, I can tell you.
Help! iTunes library – if I want to look at my library organised by artist I get multiple entries for certain artists – it seems to that certain albums/tracks as being by different artist even though I’ve tried just copying and pasting the artist name to avoid any silly mistakes re spacing etc – for does it seem to have anything to dos with file type, genre or anything else I can think of. It works fine under the other hearings, it’s just under ‘artist’ it goes crazy – and when I want to browse by artist through the Apple TV certain albums don’t show up at all. It is infuriating. can anyone help?
My Mum has just got a new MacBook Air to replace the MacBook she got in 2009. And she got the MacBook because she moved to a retirement village with not enough room to accommodate her iMac, which she passed on to a friend of mine who promptly had a stroke and never used it.
So are these ancient artifacts, from 2006 and 2009 worth anything?
It seems criminal to consign them to an environmentally friendly death, but really, what use are they to anyone?
Anyone else suffered through the latest Apple IOS9 update? So far it’s messed up the podcasts on my iPod and completely crashed my wife’s iPad and I have to wait til next Thursday for a “genius” bar meet. Anyone had similar problems and fixed them themselves?
Had it for a few years now. Will type a couple of letters and then stops. Replaced batteries. System preferences says connected to bluetooth. Disconnected and repaired – system confirms connected but does the same thing.
A keyboard with USB connection works fine.
Any system restore trick I can employ?
