With the announcement earlier last week of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the Apple Watch, Apple head Tim Cook also announced that everyone with an iTunes account receive the new U2 album ‘Songs of Innocence’ for free. In fact, it appeared on its own, within the users music library.
It would seem however, that many aren’t too pleased with this “free download” because its taking up valuable storage space on many mobile devices.
“If it was a good album I’d be all for it,” said Martin of San Diego, CA. “But it just reeks of desperation to stay relevant. I think they were so focused on the free download through Apple that they forgot to make good sounding music.”
Sally of Denver, CO said, “It just appeared outta nowhere! I had to delete 347 selfies to make anything else fit on my phone.”
“I wanted to download The Beatles Greatest Hits,” said Tom of Tampa Bay, Fl. “I kept trying and my iPhone said ‘Manage Storage’ over and over, so I looked and this mediocre album from a once admirable band was forcing itself on me and my phone. I had to plug it into my computer to get rid of it.”
Mrs. Macbeth of Scotland screamed, “Out, damned music! Out, I say!—One, two. Why, then, ’tis time to do ’t. Why must such a disaster be forced upon the noble and downtrodden?”
No word yet from either Apple or U2 for this terrible error in judgement to play magical music fairy. Free Wood Post will keep you up to date as this story unfolds.
