An Open Letter to Jon Bon Jovi On What's Really "Killing The Music Business"

I just have to say, I see the point in Jeremy’s post. If you look behind the scenes…Does Bon Jovi sell albums like he used to before Apple brought out the first iPod? Bon Jovi is a classic band - classic to buy discs in a store. I have downloaded some of his songs. THat’s if they dont have his album in stores - which most of my stores in my town are either sold out or don’t order him in anymore (With his older music). I buy his albums in store as much as I can. THEN I download it on to my computer.

Yes Apple exists and is cheaper version. If you look at it from a musicians point of view. You would see the reasons - less significance of making an album to put in stores if they can get it electronically now. He wants ALBUMS to go into stores, where you see the cover. I can am completely in agreement with him. The less times people buy the CD - That is why he is upset. NO ONE will buy the CDs he produces soon.

Well, he has right to comment on Justin Bieber, Justin took his fame to quickly and too seriously. Look at his behavior now? Drugs, booze, bashing papparazi. Jon never did that, and that is not ignorant for him to say Justin is a snob. Because all in all he is. His music may be good, but it won’t span generations like Jon’s has. It doesn’t have the potential of lasting many years or generations. Once the teenagers are not teenagers anymore they’ll move on.

Jon doesn’t take fame on his back, his job is his job. When he’s at work he uses the fame to his advantage, but when he’s not on tour he’s NOT on tour or working.

Even though Jon has billions of dollars, he gives back. MOST Musicians of this time hold onto their money buying flash cars and fancy homes - partying, drugs and so on. Jon Builds HOMES for people, and he has been doing it since 2004. He also has a restaurant open for the homeless and less fortunate. My lord, if you bash him for his pride and justice. Look deeper. He’s a fantastic musician with a big heart and not many look past it when he bashes ‘Dear lovely Justin Bieber’.

I’m 19, started liking him in 2010. Three years now. I fully support what he says. Because in all eyes from a musicians point of view - they’d want them to buy albums. The ones that has been around for 30 years.

Go Jon, you are doing great! I could go into detail, saying his classic music pulled me out of depression. But his new music will be just as classic as his old music. Because he doesn’t right sick love songs about his hearts broken. He writes about change and diversity or do you all just want him to write sappy songs like Justin and the rest do nowadays?

An Open Letter to Jon Bon Jovi On What's Really "Killing The Music Business"

I think the point here is Jon won’t have to worry too much longer. He can point his finger all he likes at people killing the music industry, but have you heard his last six albums?
He’s been ripping off his own themes for decades, can we point our finger at him for destroying his own legacy by releasing bland music? I sure hope so!

An Open Letter to Jon Bon Jovi On What's Really "Killing The Music Business"

Hi there,

I am definately one of the younger fans - my love for Bon Jovi started 2 years ago when I was 17, and I love their music. I am a computer person and I know how to pirate. It’s easy, it’s free. But I would buy Bon Jovi’s latest album to support the band IF I LIKE THE SONGS ON IT!
The new songs aren’t too bad, but as pointed out in the article, are nothing to scream about.

I want the old band back. Come back guys!

Nice, always a pleasure reading these guides! Does this mean you don’t expect Apple to release its fifth gen iPad anytime soon?

OS X Lion: Serious Wi-Fi Disconnect Problems for Macs, And Solutions?

I’ve had wifi connectivity issues with my iMac for months.  Sometimes it take me 10-15 minutes to get my wifi to stay on.  Today I found the solution, and it so very simple   Turn off the computer.  Unplug the cord.  Wait 5 minutes.  Plug in the cord.  Wait 5 minutes.  Turn on the computer.  Voila!.  Worked perfectly for me.  No more disconnecting wifi.

An Open Letter to Jon Bon Jovi On What's Really "Killing The Music Business"

It doesn’t surprise me that Bon Jovi has this attitude because he’s always came off as a pretentious, egotistical douche. In fact, I’m uncertain which artist he’s speaking for. He has thousands of fans, has done better than most in terms of sales AND distribution, so who does he represent? He attacks newer AND older acts (Madonna), so it’s not just the new technology/music scene, or at least not if you follow his illogical ‘I forgot to take my crazy old man pills today’ rants.

Could it be he hasn’t written anything relevant to a group as large as the audiences at his peak?

And as for buying the whole album vs. a song argument,  did he suddenly forget about 45’s? I remember them, bought them and loved them. Buying a single song isn’t a ground breaking idea considering they’ve been around since 1949 (more than 20 years before Bon Jovi was even born).

Again, his argument doesn’t surprise me at all coming from him.

An Open Letter to Jon Bon Jovi On What's Really "Killing The Music Business"

Growing up (I’m now 40), there were many a rock-star group which consistently released 1/2 albums worth of hits and 1/2 sort of misses…or so I thought and heard the first few times I gave them a chance around the turntable, tape deck or cd player. Even the biggest of names had lulls of excellence on the best of their albums. But they grew on you.  Take U2, The Police, Rush, Guns and Roses, I can go on:  All of these musicians put out the best of the best as well as some sub par songs to varying degrees (and depending how rabid of a fan you’ve become) in between the hits.  But tying these all together made for classic albums of all time.  My point is many times songs have to grow on you until you appreciate how amazing they are….not everything is written and sung to be a pop hit and liked by the first impression, however, that’s exactly how the 90 second attention span young listeners have been wired into discriminates on what they will purchase. Like it or dislike it, Steve Jobs (skip and fast forward) have killed the album.

OS X Lion: Serious Wi-Fi Disconnect Problems for Macs, And Solutions?

We had this problem for over a year and I spend hours and hours talking with Apple support people.  When I checked the net, I found all these discussions about the same problem. Which ultimately suggested to me that there are problems (plural) rather than just one.
We seem to have fixed our problem and I post this in case a) it really is fixed—24 hours of service and counting and b) to perhaps help someone. 
I finally called AT&T; we have DSL service.  After trying this and that, they asked about the router and said there is a problem with 2 Wire routers.  They reset the firewall.  If you have a 2Wire router and/or have AT&T DSL, I’d call them.

New Details On Apple's Budget iPhone 5

Seriously missed opportunity here, it’s just as massive as all smartphones. I was hoping for a rreduced size iPhone Mini so that the thing will fit comfortably in my pocket. I guess I’ll be keeping my Nokia GSM phone a while longer.

On Apple's iPad 5, iPhone 5S, and Plastic iPhone

The high price is due to a huge Tax Rate to import electronics into China. And I really think the low cost iPhone is BS rumours if it is anything related to China.

1. The Rich in Chinese Spends far more then what you American can imagine. So Buying a few, if not a dozen iPhone for Gift isn’t unheard of.

2. The Poor in Chinese will never able to afford anything Apple produce anyway. There are decent, usable Android Devices going from $30 - $50 range.
If they want a slightly cheaper iPhone? There is 4S.

3. Bigger Sized iPhone would be 5” with same resolution as current iPhone.

Incipio's Feather Rivals Speck's SeeThru Satin For MacBook Air 11" Protection


I second Arun B’s question. I’m leaning toward the Speck, but know the importance of the vents on the Incipio. What to do?

Also, I got an Incipio shell right after getting my refurbished 11” Air, and the case totally blocked access to the thunderbolt port (which I rely on for ethernet connections). After realizing this the hard way, it was so hard to get off that I took it back to the store so as not to end up liable for any damage, and the guy who eventually got it off cracked it at least once.

Does the Speck case leave room for thunderbolt, and is it as hard to get off as its rival?

Thanks for the comparison!

Apple's Digital AV Adapter Gets Interesting Little Changes

We purchased a HDMI pocket projector for work. I then purchased a MD 953zm/a audio/video adapter to be able to hook it up to my Iphone 4s and it works fine but it will not work on another individuals Iphone that is a straight 4. We purchased the MC 953zm/a audio/video cable but it will not work either. Is there something that I can do to get the Iphone 4 to work with this HDMI pocket projector?
Thanks, Dave Miller, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

How the new iPod touch does FaceTime

Hi!  This has nothing to do with facetime.  I have an ipod 64GB 2nd generation.  I’m currently using a calculator in an ipod.  The question that I have is when I press on a decimal point button, it always come out with a comma.  How can you change the setting and switch it from comma to a decimal point?  Without decimal point, you cannot do any math problems.  Decimal point is very important when you’re dealing with prices on a certain product.  I’ve looked through many website on how to solve this problem.  Can you help me please?  Thanx

An Open Letter to Jon Bon Jovi On What's Really "Killing The Music Business"

Bon Jovi??? UGH…
I had to laugh that someone went out of his way to write an open letter to bon jovi regarding a comment about steve jobs. Oh boy how old people are getting out there…..jeez….

How about this….you want a REAL rock album?
Pick up the new Van Halen: A Different Kind Of truth!
It’s the first REAL album in quite sometime that gets better with every listen. That right there is amazing by itself because artists today just dont have much left in the think tank. And please dont get me started on whats popular, lol. NO THANKS
Van Halen will have the best hard rock comeback and album of the year come end of 2012. Mark my words….
So, let bon jovi go…his best days ended after New Jersey….

Two Proposed Solutions to Snow Leopard Crash Problems on Macs

I have had this problem for three years now, just found these suggestions after all of the crazy other things I have tried. Been happily using Leopard since 2009, but i successfully upgraded spare hard drives to both Lion and mountain lion, i just didn’t like the new lack of arrows and other “updates” to an otherwise nifty os.
Hopefully, these suggestions are the final remedies so I can upgrade to mac versions of CS6.

An Update On Screen Protection For The Third-Generation iPad

I use a brand called eaglepro from amazon. Saw it on fat wallet. was pretty cheap so I grabbed one. To my surprise the quality of this product is quite good. very clear, no rainbow or image distortion. Maybe my eye just can’t see them. Lol.

Apple's Digital AV Adapter Gets Interesting Little Changes

In my limited experience the new md did not appear to work with ipodt4g. Cooments by owners in Amazon about the mc indicate it works (but doesn’t mirror) with ipad1 and ipt4g. This makes me think the changes are more than cosmetic. The md has a nifty lock for the docking connector, so it would be unfortunate if it doesn’t work with ipad1..
