Maybe stop giving Kanye West such an enormous media platform to document his mental illness? And I don't mean banning him from Apple Music. I mean just stop writing, blogging and talking about him all the time. Since he started these rants, his online presence has increased by a quantum level. So everyone, stop, just stop. Let him be Kanye, let his fans support him, and the rest of us can forget him.

  • Apple Music launches Rihanna's Road to Halftime show in Spatial Audio

    The halftime show has been a complete joke for 20 years.  Katy Perry and Lady Gaga were watchable/listenable, but each show was so over-the-top ridiculous that it's hard to even make them exceptions.  The shows feature: 

    1. Insanely overproduced, seizure-inducing effects and choreography 
    2. Washed-up, aged talent (e.g. Tom Petty, Rolling Stones)
    3. Inappropriate genre (Bruno Mars, Black Eyed Peas) 
    4. Awful lip syncing (for literally every performer) 
    5. Acts no-one over the age of 30 has heard of (e.g. The Weeknd) 

    Until the mid eighties, they had marching bands.  The peak of it was probably Michael Jackson, and even then I remember thinking "no one calls him The King of Pop."  

    I usually watch to take pleasure in how epically awful the show is.  If Rihanna's hair is any guide (from the commercials), I shouldn't be disappointed.  

    Well, we've heard your list of complaints (I couldn't disagree more on Tom Petty). So what do you think SuperBowl entertainment should be? Who should perform? How many should perform? How long should the show be? Should you be the sole arbiter of SuperBowl halftime entertainment? If so, what are your qualifications? If you don't like the show, why don't you just turn it off, watch something else, take a walk, get intimate with your loved one, talk to your kids about school or their lives, or something more productive than sitting there gorging on hot wings and beer and criticizing people earning their living?
  • Nothing Phone will attempt to crack US market in 2023

    So, the big question: What would get me to switch from iPhone & iOS?

    Answer: Nothing. And I don't mean the phone.
  • Apple Music launches Rihanna's Road to Halftime show in Spatial Audio

    Remind me to miss this. And the halftime show.
  • Why Spatial Audio is the future of the music industry, even if you hate it

    Hell, back in the day, we didn't need these fancy doodads for spatial audio. Couple of blunts, maybe some magic mushrooms, and you were ready for some spatial music, alright. Plug in those Shure headphones and dig Captain Beyond playing "Sufficiently Breathless," or some Zappa like "We're Only In It for the Money." Oh, my hair is getting good in the back!
  • Apple's Studio Display doesn't shine in the light of competition

    It's a great display. But you can find better at the $1,599 price. This is probably aimed at the professional/prosumer market, who need to calibrate displays/scanners/printers to precise specs. It can be done on 3rd party monitors, but is easier with Apple displays. Ideal scenario would be an all Apple-made turnkey workstation, where everything is already calibrated to CMYK and Pantone metrics. Sure would have made this retired printing business owner's workflow easier!

    But then, if I was going to dream of unicorns and rainbows…
    Show me another 5K monitor with the quality and build of the Studio Display, I'll wait...because there isn't one...
    Question is, are you in a profession that requires this level of display, or do you just want one?
