Apple To Announce End Of iTunes

Variety

Apple is widely expected to formalize the end of iTunes as we know it at its Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, Calif. Monday, when the company will give us a first view at the next versions of its desktop and mobile operating systems. As part of that update, Apple is poised to unveil new standalone music, TV and podcasts apps for Macbooks and desktop computers.

With that step, Apple is effectively decommissioning iTunes as an all-encompassing media app some 18 years after first introducing the software. This may seem like the end of an era, but the truth is that the iTunes era ended a long time ago. More

  1. Yeah, well I’m a techno-boob who still listens to cassette tapes, so it doesn’t affect me.

  2. I’ve thought iTunes was a bit of a mess. Always got lost with what I was doing or looking for-and I’m a Mac person! I like Spotify. The DailyMixes are great.

  3. SUCKERS!

    Just like gold and silver. Your money doesn’t exist if it’s not metal, or jewels, or land.

    You own your LP. Once purchased it exists. It is yours.

    What did Scrooge say in the movie?

    “These are garments, Mr. Cratchit. Garments were invented by the human race as a protection against the cold. Once purchased, they may be used indefinitely for the purpose for which they are intended. Coal burns. Coal is momentary and coal is costly. There will be no more coal burned in this office today, is that quite clear, Mr. Cratchit?”

  4. Now, the streaming services are fine, but all my Ipods loaded with cool stuff are really mine. Should I require Plastic Bertrand, or Isao Tomita’s Holst The Planets I have them.
    I like to browse and see something I like, not think up what I might like.
    Don’t know what that signifies

  5. iTunes is annoying, so is the Cloud. Never used either one.
    I have an iphone6 which, in about 6 months, will be as good as a paperweight.

  6. How dare you besmirch The Boston Symphony Orchestra? THAT’S TREASON! 🙂 DOUCHE GRAMMAPHONE! HAA!

  7. What the cloud giveth, it can taketh away.

    I didn’t buy a 75″ flatscreen to watch movies on a 3.5″ cellphone or a big honking receiver to play music on a crappy phone speaker while eating my data.

    I do not understand the Apple Lifestyle nor do I care to. Those people hate my guts. I’d rather set my money on fire than give it to them.

  9. I just download my music from Youtube with an .mp3 converter.

  10. With our iMac we copied our CDs into iTunes where they can be played on iPhones and iPads as well as on our car via Bluetooth.
    I still have an old stereo with Miracord turntable, Wharfedale speakers, etc. to play real records at home.

  11. Apple devices may be more expensive, but you don’t have to get a new operating system ever few years.
    They incrementally update over the years with totally new operating system update after several of the incremental decimal updates.
    With a cheap PC you have to keep purchasing new Windows operating systems.
