Report: Apple Is Shutting Down Beats Music

TechCrunch reports that Apple plans to shut down Beats Music, the streaming music service that it acquired earlier this year. The blog’s Josh Constine says that he’s confirmed the news with five sources at both Apple and Beats. And, to be honest, it makes sense.


Conan Thinks Apple Should Have Released An All-Encompassing U2-Remover

Despite how edgy and “punk rock” U2 thinks burdening millions of iPhones with its latest album was, there was still enough public outcry for Apple to create a custom tool to get that “music” off a user’s device. But did Apple go far enough? Conan thinks it shouldn’t have stopped at just getting U2 off your phone.


U2 Thinks Putting Its Album On Your iPhone Is 'Really Punk Rock'

Remember how U2 gave every iTunes customer a free, very much deletable album as a little gift from Tim Cook to you? And you know how everyone became livid at the sudden influx of extra Bono? Well, don’t be such a square, man. U2 was just being punk rock.


Vintage Ad Promising A Free U2 Tape With Every Walkman Is Fake

Apple recently gave iTunes users something they didn’t want for free: a new U2 album.

What Song Plays When You Accidentally Launch iTunes?

I sit at a Mac all day with my headphones on. If you do too, there’s a good chance you know the annoyance that ensues when you accidentally hit the play button on your headphones: iTunes launches and plays the first song in your library.

TorrenTV Streams Pirated Videos Straight To Your Apple TV

Apple sure won’t be happy about this. If you have an Apple TV media streamer, you’ll know that it’s a bit of a walled garden — it’s difficult to stream any content that you haven’t purchased legitimately off the iTunes Store or from your iPhone or iPad. (And that’s the way that it should be, since Apple isn’t in the business of enabling piracy.) By cleverly hijacking the Apple TV’s AirPlay support, a new piece of software called TorrenTV can stream downloading torrents straight to your big screen.


Everything That's Changed In The New iTunes 12.0

Apple just released the latest build of OS X Yosemite, including a brand new iTunes. It’s only a little bit anti-climactic. Version 12.0 does indeed look a lot like Version 11.3, the version that’s probably on your computer. But it’s got some neat little treats nevertheless.


The 9 Most Popular Apps No One Uses Anymore

When the App Store first appeared more than a year after the iPhone’s debut, we were in awe. The possibilities seemed endless! And the first thing most of us did with all that infinite opportunity? Use our phones to feign binge drinking.
