  • Apple launches Apple Music Classical app

    Should just be in a genre tab on Apple Music. 

    a lot of music catalogs on Apple Music. Just because this is a giant catalog doesn’t mean it needs its own app. 

    Biography info, etc would fit nearly as a link or accordion element. 

    More steps to do the same thing. Not good. 
    It’s not the number of tracks, it’s that the UX is different owing to some unique things about classical music. 
    It’s music. No need for separate UX. It’s just a way to justify a dedicated app. 

    But let’s say that you have a point - for sake of argument. Apple could easily implement a class where the classical tab of Apple Music gets its own look and behavior. 

    And yet none of that is necessary. 

    A music app is a music app. 

    If there is a better way to do it, then they should apply it to the app as a whole to benefit the entire thing. 

    Searching for, curating, creating playlists, and playing classical music is fundamentally no different than doing so for any other genre. 
    Yeah?  How often do you care about the composer of a pop music song?  How often do you care about the conductor or the orchestra?  How often do you care about the venue or the date of the performance?  How often do you care about what key it is in?  How often is a pop album divided by suites?

    The considerations of classical music productions for classical music fans are very different than the considerations of pop music for pop music fans and for very good reasons.  You clearly don't know anything about this, so wind your neck in.

    Like I said before, that info is nearly enabled by links and/or accordin elements right on the music page. It’s not a big deal nor is it some amazingly impossible thing that requires its own app. 

    Next you’ll be saying a web browser isn’t good enough to read about a composer and that you need a classical music themed web browser… 
    The facts that apps exist are proof positive that a web browser isn't a solution for all computing needs.  Different tools for different tasks.  And classical music is significantly different from pop music.  Sure, Music could be adapted to support both pop and classical music, but it'd add bloat and a muddle of interface.

    Classical music fans have been complaining about iTunes and Music.app for years, it's clearly insufficient.  Seriously dude, you clearly have no knowledge or interest in classical music, so why are you here?  Wind your neck in, this doesn't concern you.

  • Twitter Inc. no longer exists, now X Corp.

    "Nothing suggests that X Corp. will actually lead to the X app"

    Nothing. 

    Except Elon Musk publicly stating that Twitter will become X, the everything app. Over and over again. 


    Elon Musk publicly states a lot of things.  Someone should do an infographic of how often they're true; I doubt it will be complimentary.

  • Microsoft found a macOS exploit that could completely bypass System Integrity Protection

    Take the win guys, macOS just got more secure.  No need to shoot the messenger just because they're from a different tribe.

    Apple Classical; YAY!
    Must have an AppleMusic subscription; Well…
    I’ll hold off until I hear more about it. TBH I don’t want an AppleMusic subscription. If I did I would already have one. I mean if this IS a premium service, and the reviews are top notch, fine. I’ll go with it. But I would have preferred it to be stand alone even at the same price as AM.
    So you you’d pay the same amount for classical stand alone as it would cost for an Apple Music subscription. But you refuse to get Apple Music AND classical for the that same price. OK. Makes perfect sense. 
    Apple Music isn’t that good… at any price, the interface for Classical however looks more refined, less clutter. And if it was separate, I would pay for it.
    So get the Classical app and delete the Music app?  The app is separate, its just the pricing that isn't.  So your complaint makes literally no sense, you're getting something you want at a price you like, and are moaning about having extras that you don't need to see or use.

  • NBCUniversal ad exec Linda Yaccarino will be the new Twitter CEO

    Good luck to her.  Dealing with the manchild's antics and the destruction they leave in their wake will be a full time job on its own.  And she somehow needs to sell advertising at the same time.  Good luck to her indeed.

  • Two new Macs with M2 Max & M2 Ultra being tested ahead of WWDC

    These Studio boxes look like power houses. In fact, why do you suppose there will be a Mac Pro? What can it have that a Studio Ultra wouldn't... except personal expansions via expansion cards. And how many of us are doing that these days?
    More RAM.
    Discrete graphics.
    Expandability.
    The obvious stuff that Mac Pros have always been sold on, though often failed to live up to.

    So mean of the USA!  Bombing peaceful neighbouring countries is much more polite.
    No hypocrisy there at all.  America never bombs other countries or invades and topples other governments, even on false pretexts.  And America had nothing to do with Ukraine's 2014 coup either.  And it didn't state explicitly its plan to balkanize Russia as a prelude to war with China which it can't compete against.
    No hypocrisy at all.  I've never done any of those things.
