Oh cool! I thought it was iPad-only.
I want this on the iPhone. I hate the loupe and would prefer a finely-controllable cursor.
Yep.Also... streaming music will only be a very small part of Apple Inc. Even if Apple Music somehow fails... it won't make a dent in the company.However... streaming music is Spotify's ENTIRE business. And they haven't even made a dime yet. If they keep going down this road... they won't be around much longer.
Exactly.I read the headline and immediately knew what I would encounter in the comments.I thought the 256kbps AAC vs 320kbps MP3 debate was settled long ago...
But that's how the music industry was built. The artist is an employee of the label. And so are the writers, producers, musicians, etc.And the labels have always taken the lion's share of the income.Yeah it sucks... but it's been like that for decades.In the time it took to write this comment... someone just signed a record contract. Why did they do that?
I already do many of the things that Low Power Mode provides: Reduced brightness No motion or animated anything No background app refresh No automatic downloads So I wonder how much the reduced network speed will preserve battery life.
I wonder how big the paid streaming music market really is.For as much as people talk about Spotify... they only have 15 million paying customers.And that's out of billions of users who have compatible devices. (iOS, Android, Web)So again... what is the total addressable market for a paid streaming music service?Obviously Apple thinks they can get a piece of it.
Yeah I know why it was mentioned this time.But this isn't the first time the "Prada Argument" has been used. It bugs me every time it's mentioned.An LG executive said "Apple copied us" about 8 years ago.And it was a silly argument then too!
"I am your twin brother.""Oh, obviously! The moment I sat down I thought I was looking into a mirror!"But seriously... I never understood the LG Prada argument. There's no way the LG Prada had any influence on Apple.iPhone development started in 2004 in Cupertino California... while the LG Prada was developed sometime after that in South Korea.Did Apple have spies in South Korea?And by the time the LG Prada was shown to the public in late 2006... the iPhone's design was...
And if they believe that... they'd be wrong I guess people forgot about the Dell Streak... which had a 5" screen way back in 2010.In fact... the 5" Dell streak was released on the same day as the original Galaxy S that only had a 4" screen.But alas... screen size isn't very special anyway. You can basically pick any number and make an LCD panel that size.T-shirts came in small, medium and large... so was it really a surprise that the next size was extra large?It doesn't...
