U2 released the non free version of their new album and it includes a second “cd” of new songs and acoustic versions. iTunes has a version you can buy of just the extra stuff for $6.99. So cool - so cool that they aren’t making you buy the whole album again just to get the new stuff! That makes me happy. Listening to the acoustic songs now - and it’s great! Thank you U2! Thank you Apple! High-res

I’m in the middle of adding lyrics to all my iTunes songs using a free app called Get Lyrical - it takes a long time - you would think this would be something that automatically would happen when you buy music - like album art does…

It shows how petty and misguided some members of Western society are that they rile against a free U2 album and not the ongoing damage we do to the planet, how society treats women, minorities and people who don’t conform to societal norms.   But yeah man, fuck Bono for even trying. Shit they could have given you all a free Robin Thicke album…

Is it too much to expect a little respect from millennials for one of the biggest bands in the history of rock, not to mention some gratitude for a rare gesture of corporate generosity? Who are these trolls and why do their hateful, ignorant comments keep popping up in the social media?

U2 deserves respect [x] (via issnane)

Getting a new iphone is sometimes bittersweet - I’m kicking to the curb my inseparable partner in crime of the past two years - for a shiny new plaything - but then I get my hands on the shiny new plaything… High-res

U2 - Giant Stadium - July 20 , 2011

- to the haters - your mind is blown by a “free” album paid for by Apple - your mind couldn’t handle real music and talent - so stick with your one directions and jay z’s and arctic fires - less people to fight to get tickets to the next record breaking tour…

Adventures in Preordering

So my plan last night in preordering the new iPhone was to stay up till 3am, quickly order, and then go to bed. In the past I’ve gone to sleep and then woke up early, but couldn’t really sleep and then couldn’t really go back to sleep. One time I over slept and I was able to get one phone with delivery on the first day, but the second phone ended up being a week later. I didn’t want to have to worry about that this time so I just stayed up. At 3:01am - the time preordering was supposed to start - the apple store wasn’t up yet on the computer. At 3:05 - same thing. 3:10, 3:15, 3:30, 3:45 - can’t order. I saw on twitter that people were having success on the apple store app, so I tried that and eventually got it to work. The first time I submitted my order, though, I got an error message that said I might have ordered the phone but something happened in the submitting process and to check my email for a confirm. Didn’t get one after a few minutes so submitted again and this time it went through - email and all. Delivery on 9/19. I then went back to try another order - just to see what the availability was and most of the combos were now “unavailable”. So it seemed like mission accomplished and if I hadn’t gone through all this pain then I would’ve been facing a lengthy delay by the morning. I finally got in bed at 4:30. Up at 8. Went online and the apple store was now working - and guess what - the model I ordered - 4.7 in white 64gb at&t - was now available and delivering on 9/19. The 5.5’s are all shipping in 2 to 3 weeks but the one I ordered? No problem. Of course. Could’ve just waited. Oh - and when I check my order with apple - that part of their site is down - so I can’t even verify my order is still ok. Quite frustrating. Of course I could’ve just waited…

Decided to stay up until 3am to order the new iPhone - it always sucks to try to get up after being asleep for a few hours - or to over sleep and found out there is now a 2-3 week wait for shipment…
