It became normal because Apple briefly offered a product in the I-Phone that beat the opposition to a shred and the vast majority of people couldn't give a rats arse about such concerns.

I consider all of them to be the worst. We're moving into dangerous times, proper 1984 shite...... Just hope the music isn't as bad as the actual 1984.
Advice worth what you just paid for it.

I'm pretty sure I liked a lot more new music in 1984 than I do now!

But that's just thinking about rock music, I admit the Top 40 stuff in those days was appalling...... then again, even that was better than the utter shite infesting the charts nowadays.  Either I'm turning into my dad, or "pop music" is far, far more trite and soulless than it's ever been.

The more I think about it, apart from buying CDs and Blu-rays (which are already well down the road to redundancy) and using computers every day (here I am now!) I'm really not very involved at all with the modern world of smartphones, apps, e-readers and digital downloads.  It all seems increasingly alien to me.

True.  Why are they so obsessed with self-tuning guitars?  :?

Still, they're never going to stop making vintage reissues at various price points, are they.

You would hope they wouldn't.

Maybe American guitar players can't tune their guitars themselves?  :lol:

I'd say pop music now is better than the utter puerile tripe that was around when i was around 17 or 18 (when the sixth form centre had a radio that was normally hijacked by the non-rockers)... around 2000 or so. Anything is better than the damn vengaboys. o_O it might be getting slightly worse now, but for a while there it wasn't too bad- lady gaga and the like i actually quite like.

I love Apple products. I've got an iMac which pisses over any of the pc's i previously owned. They don't even come close. My iPhone is always being used as a nav tool at work & loads of other things. I use an iPad at home too and I love it. Perhaps I'm easily pleased. I used to scoff at macs until I had a go on one...

Modern pop music is even unpopular with the age groups its intended for. My cousins lads all listen to 80's music and watch things like the Young Ones on DVDs and YouTube.
There is no comedy made anymore which is actually funny in case it offends someone.
