iTunes takes hit, iPhone Does Also!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Pretty much, iTunes is loosing a big supplier of songs, and the iPhone sucks!

Quote:
Instead, Universal said that it would market music to Apple at will, a move that could allow Universal to remove its songs from the iTunes service on short notice if the two sides do not agree on pricing or other terms in the future, these executives said.

However, several glitches were reported with the system on Saturday and Sunday as new iPhone owners grew frustrated waiting for activation. At times the system seemed overwhelmed by the sheer volume of those trying to active their new iPhones. Those customers setting up new numbers with AT&T appeared to have fewer problems than existing AT&T customers, based on comments on Apple's support discussion and on message boards elsewhere.

The iPhone hardly sucks. It was so wildly successful, and so many people bought and iPhone at once that the system could not handle the thousands of simultaneous activations.... Sounds like a success to me. I've read that the activation hold ups are no longer present, and the activation system has caught up so there is no longer a problem

Actually, you are dead-wrong on both counts. This might be the most worthless steaming pile of garbage I've read in months...maybe even years...

1) iTunes is not losing anything. Even a cursory read simply states that Universal wishes to enter into short-term contracting vs. long-term contracting for music distribution. The article states that apple could lose Universal. But that would also mean Universal would lose the larget music distributor in the world - not likely to happen.

2) The iphone is a fantastic marvel of design, interface, and technology. Oh there were a few glitches -- whooptiedo. All new products have glitches. Go to an Apple store and try one - you'll leave amazed like everyone else.

Just because alot of people buy them doesn't mean they don't suck. Alot of people buy dells and dells suck. Being on ATT's buggy network doesn't help, thats pretty sad for a big network that can't handle thousands of activation across the U.S.
