    RIP iTunes

    it's long been fashionable to complain about iTunes but I'll miss it to a degree, hopefully the replacement Music app will retain features and functionality.

    Ripping music from iPhone to computer

    I had the pleasure of having my laptop stolen today (swiped off a desk in a client office while I went to the loo!), and of course I hadn't backed up music for over a year and don't use iCloud. While music purchased from iTunes will be on my new laptop, I have a lot on my iPhone that's not on...

    The uncoolest, low-brow cheap thrill

    fell into a rabbit hole this afternoon. no redeeming value whatsoever and anyone with a modicum of taste and intellect dismissed this shallow trend 10 years ago. i've always had a soft spot for the time and energy people spent identifying absurdest combinations and, for the best ones...
