Apple One-Click Link U2 remove junk from iTunes Marks fault Marketing Textbook

Execution is everything


Apple One-Click Link U2 remove junk from iTunes Marks fault Marketing Text

Musical tastes are personal. And it seems that force-feeding people a new album from U2, unsolicited, doesn’t go over well.

Apple giving away U2′s new Songs of Innocence is in itself not a bad thing. But there are two problems. One, the album is poorly reviewed – think Paul McCartney “Wonderful Christmastime” rather than Abbey Road. Two, because the album simply appeared in purchased music – and because iTunes (cleverly enough) displays what you’ve purchased from iCloud – it showed up in people’s collections when it didn’t belong.

So, we’ve learned something. This doesn’t work. And as always, you can’t really buy marketing. That is, sure, Aphex Twin rented a blimp, but in the end, they had more successful viral marketing because they let their fans choose to spread their new release. U2 tried to force that promotion, and even though Apple and U2 are loved by many people, the combination comes across as corporate and inauthentic.
Peter Cohen shouts at the Internet over this, but I think that’s because he’s in the unfortunate position of reading lots of tech blogs.

This isn’t a “self-indulgent, first world problem.” It’s a textbook case study in the difference in power between word-of-mouth and a poorly executed promotion.
I know lots in the music production community who were offended by the U2 move, too. And there’s a reason for that. Apple may be a big corporation, but they aren’t Coca-Cola. They’re Bic pens, or a Nikon camera, or a Gibson guitar – we use the product to make things. And they’re an RCA turntable or a pair of Sennheiser headphones, Technicolor film or a book printed by Penguin. We use the product to take in stuff we love, too. Apple’s marketing has lately been really cleverly sensitive to this (and has featured a lot of great music making apps, too). So the U2 record proved, like the release, to be a bit deaf.

There will be subtler cases of this. If YouTube or Spotify or SoundCloud tries to tell you what to like, if Facebook ultimately buries your friends under ads, it’s a problem, not because advertising can’t work, but because it can obscure the reasons to use those services. Heck, I even have to protect my own personal authenticity and CDM’s. So, yes, sometimes the reaction on the Internet overdoes the tone a bit. But filter out that tone and you’ll know what’s working and what isn’t.

And every PR person in music, every record label looking to promote a new release ought to pay attention to what has happened here. I will meanwhile enjoy scoring this Aphex Twin 1, U2 0.

And if that doesn’t say it all, this does:
https://itunes.com/soi-remove
Songs of Experience.

Writing for Time, Pat Regnier notes that part of the problem here is confusion about how cloud functionality works in iTunes. “Hate” is a strong word, I think, but people are certainly puzzled.

People Don’t Hate U2 Nearly as Much as They Hate iTunes
TechCrunch notes the rising importance of exclusives and the like, though I think this case demonstrates that backlash is a real risk:
The Music Industry Is About To Change, And Apple And U2 Are Just The Beginning
Berlin-based DJ and music pundit BarbNerdy notes that article. And speaking of backlash, she also notices that we’re starting to see promoted tracks in SoundCloud. That seems to be a bigger potential problem for the Web service than the (opt-in only, someday subscription opt-out) advertisements.

And I think this is why people are spooked. Do they really care about one U2 album? No. But this represents the world of music you don’t want, which to me is worse than advertisements. It’s payola all over again, more explicit than ever.

Apple introduces new iPhones, SmartWatch, software

new Apple smartwatch

 

 For the first time in years, Apple iPhones were not the star of the show. Apple released a SmartWatch Tuesday, a portable device that marks the first major entry of the company into a new product category since the debut of the iPad in 2010.


 The move is significant due to recent questions about whether Apple still has the ability to innovate after the death of 2,011 co-founder Steve Jobs.

The introduction of two new device eclipsed the iPhones, larger company that does not quite have larger screens; they will have a new landscape mode to take advantage of the larger screen.

The iPhone 6 will have a screen that measures 4.7 inches, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. In both cases, application developers can design applications that can be viewed differently when the phone is horizontal.

Apple also introduced a system to use the phone to make credit card payments in retail stores.

Apple is turning to the past, as it exposes their future. The company is holding the event at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts, the same location where Jobs introduced the Mac computer changing industry 25 years ago. The Cupertino, California, located close to the headquarters of Apple.

As for iPhones, which still represent the main source of profit for Apple, the larger models should help the company compete with Android devices.

This is what unfolded in Tuesday's event



BIGGER iPHONES

 

The iPhone 6 will have a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. The screen resolution on the Plus version will be sharper than previous iPhones, to 401 pixels per inch instead of 326.

With the larger screen is a new horizontal view of the Home screen. Usually icons are stacked vertically, even when the phone is horizontal. Application developers will also have new tools to reorganize their content to take advantage of the larger screen.

The new phones are not as great as the last flagship phone of Samsung - 5.1 inch to 5.7 inch Galaxy S5 and to Note 4 - but they will be large enough to neutralize a key advantage of Samsung and other manufacturers Android have had.

In particular, Note Samsung phone is not growing this year. Last year Note 3 was 5.7 inches. Instead, Samsung is emphasizing other hardware features, such as a sharper screen. Also releasing a model with a curved edge to show the time, weather and other information on the side of the phone.

Apple says the new phone will be faster and have better battery life than previous versions. The phones also have a new sensor, barometer, to estimate the amount you've climbed the stairs, not just how far you have walked or run.

Of course, some people still use their phones to actually make calls. When there is poor cellular reception, people will be able to make regular calls over Wi-Fi. The transfer between the two networks will be transparent. In the USA, this feature will initially be available through T-Mobile.

The resolution of the camera is 8 megapixels, while Android and Windows Phone rivals are pushing that. The S5, for example, is 16 megapixels. However, the number of megapixels is only one factor in what makes a good photo. Apple says it is putting in new sensors for better shots.

Apple is also enhancing the role of video in slow motion, allowing even slower shots. The camera is capable of taking 240 frames per second, twice what is on the iPhone 5s last year. Normally, the video is at 60 frames per second.

The new phones will begin shipping in the USA September 19, with pre-orders to start on Friday. Starting Prices are comparable to those in the past - $ 199 with a two years for the iPhone 6 with 16 gigabytes of storage.

However, models of elevators have double the memory than before - $ 299 for 64 GB and $ 399 for 128 gigabytes. The iPhone 6 Plus phones will cost $ 100 more for each configuration.
 

 

 

MOBILE PAYMENTS 

 

Apple is calling its new payment system Pay Apple.

You will be able to use your phone's camera to capture a photo of your card. Apple will verify that behind the scenes and add it to the account passbook your phone so you can make payments to a retailer. Apple announced several merchants who accept this system, including Macy's, Whole Foods, Walgreens and Disney stores - and, of course, Apple stores.

Many companies have tried to push mobile payment services, but none has caught on widely. Cook says that's because the business models have focused on self-interest of companies rather than the user experience. The latter, Cook says, is "exactly what Apple does best."

For security, the card number is stored only on the device. Every time you pay a card once to create the transaction.

 

A SmartWatch

 


The audience burst into applause as Cook proclaimed that he had "one more thing". It was how Jobs used to close his speeches.

That was a closer SmartWatch Apple thing. It's called the Apple clock instead of iWatch many people had been speculating.

Consumer electronics companies have yet to demonstrate a compelling need smartwatches while bracelets have been largely niche products aimed at tracking fitness activities. Apple device seems to change that.

Consider the history of the company: music players, smartphones and tablet computers existed long before Apple made ​​their own versions. But they were not the main or until the current popular iPod, iPhone and iPad arrived. According to Jobs, Apple made ​​those products easy and fun to use.

Cook said Apple had to invent a new interface for the clock because simply shrinking a phone would not work.

Much of the interaction would be through the dial on the clock, which Apple calls the digital crown. It is used to zoom in and out of a map, for example, which is not blocking the screen, what would have happened if you were pinching in and out of zoom.

Apple has also been working with application developers to create new functionality. You will be able to open the doors of the rooms at Starwood hotels or remembering where you parked your car with a BMW application.

The new watch will come in a variety of styles and straps, with a choice of two sizes. Clocks competing vendors have been criticized for being too large for small arms.

The clock will require one of the new iPhones or an iPhone 5, or 5c 5s. It will be available early next year, with a starting price of $ 349

  

 

NEW SOFTWARE

 

While much of the attention has focused on the new devices, software powering these devices is becoming its annual update. Apple iOS considers 8 to be the biggest update since the introduction of the App Store in 2008.

Current users of iPhone and iPad will be eligible for the free upgrade, too. Apple is proud of pushing customers to the latest version of the software, allowing application developers to incorporate new features without having to worry about the abandonment of existing users. With Android, many recent phones can not be upgraded immediately because of the restrictions imposed by manufacturers and wireless service providers.

Among other things, 8 will allow iOS devices work best in sync. For example, it is possible to start a message on an iPhone and finish it on an iPad. With a forthcoming update called Mac Yosemite, will be able to continue working in the same message on a Mac computer also.

These features extend handover to the new Apple clock, too.

The new software will be available for existing users on September 17.

Closing the event, U2 performed on stage before Cook made ​​his new album, "Songs of Innocence", available for free to all customers of Apple's iTunes.

Apple shares rose 1 percent to $ 99.36 in afternoon trading Tuesday.
