    Music IS the experience. The program or app that plays it is completely irrelevant.

    So is Fudzilla spouting nonsense (wouldn't be the first time) or are Apple really going all Windows 8 with El Capitan?

    Re: Apple WWDC 2015: Apple Music, OS X El Capitan, iOS 9, watchOS 2

    According to Apple CEO Tim Cook the new streaming music service will "change the way that you experience music forever."
    I'd like an iFan to explain exactly how this is supposed to happen - all that Apple Music seems to be is a clone of the existing services out there, even the pricing seems to be very close to Spotify's. Although Spotify does have the advantage of working on more platforms (e.g. Windows Phone and Linux).
    Sure the "curation" might be handy but that does really depend on what algorithms and what "experts" are being used (e.g. I wouldn't be much interested in anything Stuart MacConie has to say). Siri integration sounds good - but I'd be more impressed if PC and Android got similar integration with their native assistants (Cortana and GoogleNow).

    Sorry to come across as negative, I'm sure that OSX and iPhone fiends will be turning cartwheels or visibly drooling about the goodies on offer.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    I haven't tried it but I would guess that Lollipop would provide the curation mode anyway.

    No mention of a Shazam style service either.

    I'm underwhelmed. (But then I'm not remotely interested in streaming music services anyway) Just hope they don't mess up a perfectly good GUI on OSx for the sake of it.

    Still waiting for Apple Radio which was launched in 2013 with iOS7 to appear in the UK.

    According to that article they're going Windows 8 with iOS 9, not with El Capitan (which is OS X). Although even then it's a bit of a mixed metaphor, since Windows 8 brought a home-screen-style UI to Windows, while fudzilla are claiming that Apple will remove the home screen.

    I can't see why people are excited for the Music offering, it's going to be hard to beat Spotify, which runs in many more places, or Xbox music which even runs in just an HTML browser. Both are established too.

    Oh who am I kidding, people will be telling us in 5 years how Apple invented music subscription streaming

    Re: Apple WWDC 2015: Apple Music, OS X El Capitan, iOS 9, watchOS 2

    Personally I'm pleased to see side-by-side multi-tasking coming to iOS. I'm not at all happy to see Metal come to OSX, considering apple could (and probably have) very easily got early access to Vulkan, it seems to me to be much better to support the open standard. Both systems have very similar goals, and also achieve them in similar ways, I see no need to reinvent the wheel on this one.

    Music stuff doesn't really interest me, I buy and listen to albums the vast majority of the time (plus a bit of youtube), don't expect that to change in the near future.

    To me, the biggest thing that came out of the WWDC press conference was the open-sourcing of Swift 2.0. I've flicked through the language manual and seen a lot of things I like, but I'm not learning a closed language to any depth (especially with things like C# and .NET5 probably going to be available cross-platform from Microsoft in the near future). Apple announcing that they are going to release linux binaries of Swift was a good step for me, it looks like it could be quite a useful language (although a lot of that depends on the quality of its FFI), at least for rapid prototyping, and maybe squishing togethre with other languages through some LLVM magic.
