  • Apple Music, explained

    Jim Dalrymple’s Apple Music woes has been sorted, sort of, although Jim’s stance on the matter is less clear now. Anyway, Joy of Tech has described how Apple Music actually works, so at least that’s good…

  • Apple Music issues

    Jim Dalrymple have had some serious issues with Apple Music:

    At some point, enough is enough. That time has come for me—Apple Music is just too much of a hassle to be bothered with. Nobody I’ve spoken at Apple or outside the company has any idea how to fix it, so the chances of a positive outcome seem slim to none.

    As if all of that wasn’t enough, Apple Music gave me one more kick in the head. Over the weekend, I turned off Apple Music and it took large chunks of my purchased music with it. Sadly, many of the songs were added from CDs years ago that I no longer have access to. Looking at my old iTunes Match library, before Apple Music, I’m missing about 4,700 songs. At this point, I just don’t care anymore, I just want Apple Music off my devices.

    This doesn’t mirror my experience of Apple Music, but it points out that there are kinks left to sort out. Hopefully Apple can help Jim out, as a music lover who’s lost way too many albums over the years, for various reasons, I feel for him. Music listening is one of those things that really just has to work.

  • Jim Dalrymple and the iPhone 6 Plus

    Jim Dalrymple on the iPhone 6 Plus:

    Despite my initial reaction, three months in and I’m happily using the iPhone 6 Plus. The larger screen is glorious for my aging eyes and I find I’m able to get more done on a phone than ever before.

    Nice piece. I’ll have my own piece on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which I’m still swapping between, up in the near future.

  • How to beard

    I was steered onto a short but possibly helpful piece on beard care, as in that thing that covers every male hipster’s face. There are some gems there if you’re struggling to grow a beard.

    Everyone grows a different beard, some have a fuller beard and some have patches where there is no hair growing at all. If that’s the case, embrace the way YOUR beard is growing. It’s your own style. If you have patches, embrace them and make the look your own! I always hated that I have a slightly red beard as well as that my mustache is completely white/blond compared to the rest of my beard — I always thought it looks bad, now I’m trying to embrace it. Every beard is unique & special on it’s own.
