 Well, FWIW, iOS 9 Beta is certainly less "beta" than iTunes 12.2, which is a full release version... People are rightfully confused.
That is very unlikely to be the case. There are certainly licensing issues here, at least for some of the content available for streaming now. Home Sharing allows for some constellations which are not 100% in line with Apple Music's terms and conditions. What they must be blamed for is, not for the first time, piss-poor communication. Just as with iMovie, Final Cut X and iWorks before, 99% of the people being miffed now would have totally accepted that and kept their old...
 The problem with her article is that is deals with semantics instead of the bottom line result: - Yes, Apple does not replace DRM-free files with DRM'd ones in one go.- But, as AI mentioned correctly, in some cases playlists and content get deleted (there is obviously no clear idea in which constellations this happens, as it does not affect all users - I suspect some iTunes Match constellations with more than one source computer, but I can't back this up sufficiently). IF...
 Not sure the 17" MBP was about early adopters. It existed for many years and had a purpose (additional screen real estate needed for some tasks). I had every 17" PowerBook and MBP because of that. With the arrival of the 15" rMBP in 2012 most of the need for the 17" model just vanished for many people. I know several people who went down that road, and nobody wants the bigger device back. So, maybe Apple just killed it for good (for most)? I do not think that the 17"...
 Classical confusion of cause and effect. Analog watches (at least the majority) are round, because a hand describes a circle and most complications are most easily implemented above the (also roundish) clockwork. Pretty much all major manufacturers also had square and rectangle shaped luxury watches, mostly in combination with complications (like power reserve gauges, moon phase, second dial etc.) which just made more sense outside of the main dial's surface (e.g. to...
 Well, it is most likely the best selling watch in human history already (unless some communist state gave some millions away for free). That is certainly "viable". It is still not shipping immediately anywhere, and it has not even reached all countries. That is certainly "viable". Considering the amount of Apple Watches sold, the amount of people buying expensive accessories like bands (I have 5 bands by now which is maybe excessive, but everybody I know bought at least...
 Well, of course you want whatever you want, but it should be pretty clear that Apple is not even going in this direction. They use terminology like "timepiece" and "complications" for a reason, they aim for the modern version of analog luxury watches. This is also pretty clear from e.g. their selection of bands, which are all variations (in some cases advancements) of such watches. Nobody with any interest in these considers anything Suunto or Garmin are making "elite" or...
When the Apple Watch was still a rumor, I was not interested at all. This changed immediately when they showed it off the first time. I love the design. It works flawlessly, battery life is plenty sufficient (including some buffer to allow for the degradation of the battery over time) and it really looks thicker in pictures than it really is. Unless you compare it to some super-flat hand-wound analog watch, the thickness is completely normal.   I do not really miss any...
That is by far the dumbest thing I have read in months. For all matters, an iTunes Library is not an iTunes Library. It does make a huge difference, if you only have tracks bought from iTunes (these seem to be untouched by the update), or also tracks you have ripped yourself, or bought elsewhere. 12.2 almost exclusively ruins metadata, tracks, albums and playlists including non-iTunes stuff, or iTunes stuff where metadata has been edited (e.g. to put in correct years or...
Well, just to be clear. Until today I had a perfectly organized iTunes Library. All metadata, covers, etc. 100% in order. Below a picture of 12.2's greatness (be warned, approx. 80% of my over 4000 albums are messed up like this now):
