Dear Apple | sound is driving us crazy on our Macs

Dear Apple,

Please implement a system wide notifier that tells us where the music is coming from so that when music just starts playing, we can control the music, and keep working, playing and loving our Macs.

We have multiple apps and music players like Spotify, iTunes, Rdio… open at the same time.
We have multiple tabs in multiple browsers… open at the same time.

All of a sudden music starts playing on our Mac. Sometimes one song, sometimes many… at the same time.
We didn’t do it. it just happened.

We are confused, frustrated, embarrassed,
and we can’t find the source of the music…
It’s driving us nuts, our friends, partners, colleagues…

MECHANICAL INTERFERENCE

“The presence of machinery in our lives is constant. It is the mechanical hand that moulds our everyday objects, the food, the clothing, tools and technology that we rely on. The extent to which we engage with mechanical production is increasing at an exponential rate.

The notion that machinery is needed in order to make our lives easier and more efficient drives us to consume, it drives us to learn more of these machines; those who do not engage are discouraged and in some instances, rendered... read more

Use the force Luke | Artists and songwriters can profit from file sharing

  5. Distribute income to the correct rights holders and artists.

This new and additional revenue model also gives rights holders and record companies more bargaining power when negotiating with Apple’s iTunes.

And lawyers would still have a job.
