What did Apple do wrong with U2 album?

horse mouth photoI have read a few complaints about Apple giving away the U2 album Songs of Innocence. I don’t understand the outrage. I had ignored the ruckus until I read an article in one of my favorite blogs, Successful Workplace.

What did Apple do to incur this outrage? All the company did was give away an album that was going to be widely popular anyway. But instead people have come out against Apple for their generosity.

You may not love U2, but a lot of people do. Apple spent a reported $100 million dollars to give a gift to a lot of people.

Find a hobby before you upgrade your iPhone to iOS4

I just upgraded my iPhone 3G to the new OS today. I must admit that the new features (especially the ability to group apps together) is quite nice. I wish I could take advantage of the backgrounds but that doesn’t work for a 3G phone.

The biggest complaint on the entire process is that it took FOREVER to do the upgrade.  It took over 4 hours to do the backups, reflash the ROMs, and then re-sync the apps, movies and songs back to my phone

My biggest advice to anyone that is going to do this upgrade soon – take your time.  Plug it in, get it started, and then go do something else for several hours.
