Surprise! Taylor Swift’s New Album – 1989 – To Stream On Apple Music On June 30th
Well, that didn’t take long, did it? Looks like Taylor Swift and Apple made “nice, nice” after this past week’s -uhm – “misunderstanding“.
According to Taylor Swift’s Twitter account, the popular recording artist has decided to release her 1989 Album for streaming on Apple Music.
Apple Music is scheduled to go live on Tuesday, June 30th and, although Taylor Swift stipulated that the album will initially be released to Apple for live streaming, it will be available to other streaming sites, such as Spotify, in the future. Just not now. Because that would not play well with Apple.
So, as predicted here a couple of days ago, it seems that this lovely, very creative and oh so fun PR stunt played out as planned. And just in time for the launch of Apple Music.
I love when show business and technology collide. My two favourite worlds. Steve Jobs dream really has come true over and over and over again.

Well, folks, another year, another World Wide Developer Conference in the very near horizon. But, as much I love these Apple get – togethers, I am beyond “bummed” that the anticipated redo of the Apple TV unit is quite possibly cancelled. Yes, cancelled. Again.
Because television content providers aka the TV Networks are making life a living hell for Apple and its consumers. Boy, is this story ever getting old and annoying. When will the networks release themselves from the dinosaur age and embrace all that technology can offer its consumer?
One answer: Money. It makes the world go round. Just not ours. Read the rest of this entry
