It’s 2014. It’s been almost a decade since I’ve purchased music on a Compact Disc. Yes, you should still have a CD player in your vehicles even though most people are looking for iPod connections, or at least an Aux In. What that slot shouldn’t be if the only way to put music on the “jukebox” that is built into the stereo. Really? There’s a perfectly good USB port right there in the console that I should be able to plug a USB key full of music into and be given the option of copying the contents to the internal drive. Thanks for averting a “feature” that is about the closest thing to unusable, unless of course you enjoy root canals and burning CD’s that you will subsequently throw out.
Also, the fact that there is a limit on the voice search for iPod is crazy making. The fact that I can’t find a straight answer on what that limit is is even worse. Cmon, it’s the size of a truck you can’t put a little more memory or whatever in there? My iPhone’s got enough smarts to voice search my music, and that’s not before Siri.
"I’ve been burned by hacks that fail at the wrong time and complex tools which have let me down. I’ve begun to deeply appreciate when something endures because of the decisions made by some industrial designer in their tight grey-colored shirt and two-days worth of beard."
"Control your destiny by choosing to spend time with others that possess traits that you would be happy to share. Learn all you can from those who have strengths that are your weaknesses and never be too stubborn to change or you will never develop yourself as a person or athlete to the fullest! Success is a choice so choose to succeed!"
"restricting choice, forcing us to support others, and creating incentives for people not to work are inherent in Obamacare and all welfare programs. When people claim that a market isn’t working, they mean they don’t like the choices people are making and want to forcibly override them. When they claim government should support those in need, that necessarily means taxpayers should be forced to support people who aren’t supporting themselves."
"Taboos are simply not rational. Taboos, by design and definition, are to scare you away—so that you don’t actually think, reason, understand."
So, people think that because Apple’s share in sales is declining they think they’re loosing. The numbers show they’re making more and more money. So, they are moving in the direction of making less phones for more money while everyone else is “making up for their losses in volume”. Which side would you like to be on?
