Didn't Know How Much You Loved U2?

by Stefani Lawless on September 19th, 2014 in Apartments

If you don't know, now you know. If you aren't aware of their hit "Beautiful Day" that was released in the early 2000's, U2 had been a popular band in the 90's and early millennium. The band just released an album for the first time in five years. U2 signed a deal with Apple in order for their new album, "Songs of Innocence," to be free but not only that. The company put it on any iCloud account that was active. This caused many Apple users to be upset that somehow, without permission, something was put on their devices. Recently, Apple put up a "remove album" button for users to completely remove the U2 album off their devices. If you don't believe it, go check your phone, it will be there. You can remove it from your account by clicking here.

This also intertwines into the fact of celebrities recently having their photos hacked through their iCloud accounts. How far can Apple go without you noticing? How invasive can it get? It is a tad discomforting to think about.  Is this a huge mistake for the company? Only time will tell. Till then Apple, you should probably keep your act together and let users pick the music they want on their own devices.
