iTunes, the media player you haven’t used since the early 2000s, is dead

This week Apple killed off iTunes, McLovin turned 38 and I’m tired AF (like the kind of tired I used to feel in varsity if we pulled an all-nighter writing an essay or went out partying on Friday AND Saturday).

It’s been rewarding but the long hours get to me. I’m an I-need-8-hours-of-sleep-or-I’m-like-a-grumpy-toddler kind of girl. And on that note here’s all the internet news you need to know about this week.

RIP iTunes

At WWDC 2019, Apple announced that it is killing off iTunes to focus on streaming with Apple Music. iTunes had a good 18-year run (I remember using iTunes to create playlists that I would then burn onto a CD for my car), but it was time for it to go. I actually uninstalled it from my computer not too long ago because I didn’t use it.

But what about my prized music collection I hear you ask. All of your music will simply now appear in Apple Music. So will we miss iTunes? Not at all. Do I feel old because I remember when it first came out? Damn straight.

I actually rewatched it the other day and it’s funny when you’ve been saying something for so long that you forget where you saw it first. Here are some of those phrases…

The cops are my favourite and particularly this scene (when we go on game drives and take sundowners, these are known as road beers).

Shall we get road beers? Yeah? Can I have thirteen beers to go please.

This is funny but terrible but funny

    I still use my iTunes everyday, listening to music in traffic 😃

      After writing this, I have learned that quite a few people still do in fact use iTunes. Hopefully Apple Music will be just as good. 🙂
