But all of the musicians were going to be paid by Apple, just starting after three months. How in the world does playing their music for three months break them? It would be as if Apple simply started the service three months later with three months of advertising their music... for free! It would not have negatively affected any of them... only positively! The people that whined about the three months are delusional.
So you link to an article from an anti-virus company, Kaspersky, to support your beliefs? Are you actually running anti-virus software on your Mac? Do you realize that every piece of software that you install becomes yet another attack vector? OS X doesn't need anti-virus software beyond what Apple is doing, when the computer is used with presence of mind, and common sense. Know your computer, don't blindly trust a third-party company to be looking out for your best...
The timing of Apple's server fix almost proves that media exposure works... a fix just this week, right after XARA was exposed in the media? It's been more than 6 months, so why the sudden magical fix to the server?
Is Amazon actually making a profit from their Kindle adventure?
 "Lost my energy provider" - hmmmm? what does this mean? Which wifi router are you using in your house? That might be the culprit, not necessarily the Nest alone.
 Yah, that was my first thought, but I believe that using Apple devices in the promo video stems from Google promising to keep their nose out of Nest (i.e. keeping it a separately-managed entity), and also to swoon Apple users. I think the video playback strategy is flawed. The video should be stored "on-device", not stored on Nest servers in the cloud. Far too much trust is being given to these companies.
 I've been a Mac fan because I recognize the love and attention to detail that went into creating the Mac experience. I used to read the manuals that came with Mac hardware and software simply to study their clean, elegant design. (Does anybody remember the Inside Macintosh series?) I don't cleanly fit into either of the above two categories. I am a creative professional that chooses the Mac because it "just works".... or rather "works better for me". Yesterday, I spent...
Isn't it ironic that iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 were both announced at Apple's WorldWide DEVELOPERS conference? Apple is doing tons to support a healthy ecosystem of software (and hardware) development for their platforms. It is unreasonable to expect Apple themselves to be able to create every solution that you expect them to. Just like any company, they need to have a sharp focus, and clearly their many focuses are working to their advantage, and for the benefit of us all,...
 AppleInsider should know better than the leave open such an important detail. To claim in the headline "Apple using 256kbps", without mentioning the codec, and then in the story say that "Beats is using 320kbps MP3", it's designed to create controversy, discussion and, ultimately, page views for ad revenue.
Correction for you – *most* people don't care. But those that do will hear the difference.
