    @johngordon @morrick @larand Given stock fall I’m surprised they haven’t.

      @johngordon @morrick @larand Yeah, that’s why I tend to think the story is bogus. I can’t see Apple getting that aggressive. I’m more worried about them waiting until the USB-C audio spec is out and using that.

        @johngordon Wow. That’s bizarre. I’ve ordered lots of lightning cables from Amazon but always got them quick.

          @jws Most of my music has lyrics. Having them by default on Apple’s stuff will be nice. You can add lyrics *I think* to Apple’s stuff if you first make them part of your library and modify the metadata.

            @adiabatic I have to admit I’ve really been bitten by the Apple playlist feature of Music. I often use it as a starting point for my own playlists. It’s what I’d hoped genius would be back in the day. I listen to albums, but just for select groups.

              @johngordon @joeo10 Headphone jack rumor is far from sure with a few contradictory rumors. Whether the feature is a big focus will of course depend on implementation. But I can’t see Cook saying that if it’s only on par with 3D touch.

                @johngordon Only added WaPo a few months ago. Surprised how often they have really good stories.
                clarkgoble
                  @johngordon I don’t know. I was actually surprised when the article I was reading said they were now doing better than NYTs. I’ll see if I can see something tonight. I have WaPo politics stories in my ADN timeline.

                    @johngordon We didn’t get it either. Nearest fulfillment center is Phoenix.

                      @johngordon I don’t think he’s a lousy leader. Even Jobs took time to learn, and a lot he learned in his exile by failure. No matter who got appointed they are going to have rough patches.

                        @johngordon That’s interesting. Out of curiosity, what were they?

                          @larand @johngordon I actually think Cook’s done a fine job despite his limitations. I think some of the people under him have made some bad decision. I just don’t think Cook has a good feel for devices the way Jobs did and depends upon others.

                            @morrick @larand @johngordon Wonder if Apple will ship with a lightning headphone or bluetooth headphone though.

                                  @duerig …at least with the fixes made over six months, I think it’s main problems are not having menu options to do very basic things. The problems are about confusing modal choices about where you can do what.

                                    @duerig Even with Apple Music often the song I found isn’t with the album collection but some other collection. (This is true even with the Apple Music generated playlists) While I don’t think the Music UI is as bad as some…

                                      Actually as I read that 9to5Mac article it seems like they’re doubling down on album-centric design when that’s a big problem with current design. Most people want playlists and singles oriented design. Again a focus on what looks good in print & demos.
