Now why would they want that?

Great new feature in iTunes 7 = Album Art. BUT you have to have an Apple iTunes music store account and you can’t have one of those without giving out you credit card details. Now why would I want to do that when all I want is to have album art!

¬†Apple again tries to up the lockin, you’ve got an account – oops you’ve just bought that song! Here at least Microsoft lead as you can have album art in Media Player without any accounts anywhere, it just goes out and gets it.

Apple come on, time to wake up and smell the roses. Don’t try to tie me in and I might, just might, buy into an iPod. Starting to like iTunes, love looking at iPods and almost lust after one but games like this just make me reluctant to buy in. So posts like this start breaking down the resistance and then this!


Enough Already !

Stop this nonsense labelling everything with 2.0! Ever someone coined the phrase Web 2.0 nothing is cool unless you label it with a 2.0, the lates of which is lunch 2.0. Come on this is just getting ridiculous. Just cause you label it 2.0 it does not make it a success, or new, or intresting.

Rory gets it with his post Hello v2.0, time to hold back on that 2.0 moniker and make sure it really makes sense. Just adding 2.0 does not make it interesting, good, worthwhile.
