Music is an embarrassment of riches. Will I get any work done today?!? Beats 1 Radio is amazing. Some expectable promos, but no commercials. I tuned very early and heard Brian Eno-Ambient 1: Music for Airports. One of my favorite LP's of all time. I have it on vinyl, but haven't heard this on the radio in decades. Well done!
yeah, me too. lightning fast.
Here's all I need to know....I just opened the redesigned Music app, turned on Beats 1 Radio and out of nowhere, one of my very favorite artists and albums of all time-Brian Eno's Ambient 1: Music for Airports. I haven't heard this on the radio since WXPN (Philadelphia) in the early 90's. I NEVER hear Eno on the radio...so cool. And to think that people all over the world may be hearing Eno for the first time. Very impressed. 
It was a no-brainer for me to go 128 GB. I don't regret it. 32 GB would not have worked at all and 64 would be too tight for my uses. I don't even think about capacity limits and enjoy my phone so much more. having said that, I also think I'll keep this phone that much longer.
I think I read Apple's exclusive consumer electronics deal is ending in 2015. I could be wrong and I didn't search around for the link. It would be hard to believe all this work will come to nothing.
This is a step in the right direction. I've dragged .jpegs and .pdfs into Notes for quite a while. Synching between iPhone and mac with no Evernote fussiness is a killer feature.   I wonder if Apple could do a full fledged sketchpad app. I use the Grab utility for screenshots along with and Preview to markup pdfs, currently. however, Grab only saves as .tiff and many third party apps do not support that format. So, I need to convert to .pdf...sigh!   I wonder how a...
I've wondered about this...Beats has a bit too much of a Bass-y connotation. I'm not sure that classical music lovers, for instance, will be too comfortable with "Beats".
And about a billion dollars a year in headphone revenue. Apple likely is closing in on recouping that $3 billion from Beats headphones, earphones, and speakers.
Can Spotify properly clear your offline playlist cache on iPhone? It couldn't when I used it a couple years ago and that was the main reason I gave it up. I won't pay $10 per month without being able to easily send playlists to offline mode and easily move those playlists from the cache. The playlists continued to take up space on my then 16GB iPhone 4S-no bueno. The only remedy was to uninstall and reinstall the app to clear the cache. If Beats/Apple Music can maintain a...
I'm with you on this one. I tried Spotify, but could not stomach $10 a month for music. I love iTunes Radio and I've tuned my 12 or so stations really well. I have iTunes Match-no commercials and use my iPhone for iTunes Radio, my own music, and podcasts at work. I pair my iPhone with a small Bluetooth speaker (Sony SRS BTV 5). Works great for me. Desktop computer speakers tend to suck. This one's good enough, but cheap enough to be replaceable. I bought a few of them for...
