I think it works really well, too. And also chiming in on the "for you" section being surprisingly great. I've never seen any suggestions or playlists on Spotify that I've liked. In fact I've always deeply hated every suggestion made by Spotify. Since it's commercial forces driving suggestions, or just bad taste, I don't know. Apple Music has surprised me in this area, suggesting a lot of certainly great music. This is probably the Dre currating magic hard at work. Great...
Yeah great points. Indeed, it's a crazy, and strange time for music. I always suggest patreonage as the ultimate model. In my own experience, a hundred people donating are more powerful than a million streams on the internet. It's a mind twister that is hard to accept at first.. But then it slowly dawns upon you. Here's a Ted Talk/ performance I gave on the topic earlier this year.
I think for small time artists streaming is always a bad short term money making solution. And perhaps long term too. There simply isn't enough volume to get any money that you can live from. For Dre, a few years from now, he might have earned more money.. Chances are that your music will be played by a much wider audience, which is good in itself, because if you've got many fans and listeners, it's a much better starting point than if you have fewer fans. Easier to book...
Also don't forget those 500.000 downloads.500.000 x $12? x 0,7? = $8 571 428Combined, this potentially shows that much more people are listening to his music than prior to streaming. Which is a nice thing. But it also shows that buying is a much more powerful short term business model. It also shows that streaming is a business model that works for big time artists.I'd say it's a great launch. I could live my whole life from this amount of money ;-) Anyone who says the...
Can't they just pay and shut up and move on? They can even pay with Samsung Pay, if it works
I wouldn't be surprised if Apple was trying snatch YouTube channels over to Apple TV.
I think it will happen at some point. And I think that if they'll make a stylus it'll definitely gonna be one with style. It's in their DNA to go up on stage and say "we noticed that there has been tremendous amount of art and hand writing being produced on the iPad, even though it's not officially supporting a stylus. So it's our time to give you all the best tool for precision input. Our stylus is 10x more precise than there are pixels on screen, and with the API you've...
Jolly good times ahead I think an iPad pro would need pro work flow, pro apps, and even no latency tablet-to-Mac (Wacom Cintiq killer) functionality with an awesome and super precise stylus.
Yeah the genre is a bit too narrow for my taste on Beats1. I'd be happy to see other channels cover more underground and truly alternative stuff, as well as contemporary jazz and classical etc. and perhaps more reports from the field.I like Apple Music. It suggests good music, and it's easier to find interesting new music. It doesn't feel commercially driven at all. However I've had quite a few dropouts in the last couple of days, where entire albums refuse to play, the...
Ouch!!
