#1LinerWeds from The Guardian

The only music Apple ever gave away for free was the album absolutely nobody wanted or asked for.

The Guardian published an article by Steve Rose in April called “A brief guide to everything that’s annoying about Apple.” Now, I have an iPhone 4s, an iPod Video (fifth generation, I think), and a Mac Mini, and Mary has an iPad, so we’re pretty well invested in Apple hardware, and have to deal with those people in Cupertino (well, not them so much as the decisions they’ve made) on a more or less daily basis. The article is so good I now have in Evernote for the day a year or so from now I want to look back on “the good old days.” I talked about the incident that provoked the line above a couple of years ago, where Apple decided to add the U2 album Songs of Innocence to everyone’s iTunes library, whether or not they actually wanted it.

Anyway, the article’s a good one and you’ll get a laugh out of it, whether or not you own anything made by Apple.


One-Liner Wednesday is hosted by Linda Hill. I don’t have a link for her one-liner just yet, but here’s her blog.
