I’ve invested the best part of the last two weeks getting my iTunes music into the cloud with iTunes match. I can now download any part of my music collection to any of my devices wherever I am as long as I have good 3G or broadband connectivity. This means that my iPhone in effect has all 17,534 songs (1521 albums) on it, which is cool.
However my experience has highlighted
problems learning opportunities in three areas viz:-
1. Being an early adopter of technology,
2. Rural broadband in the UK, and
3. iTunes doesn’t always work properly and displays almost fractal complexity as you dig into it.
It has also given me a personal insight into the Halo effect surrounding Apple and its products.
In an attempt to be tidy, I’ll cover these in separate posts.
