Fox News: Will the Beatles Take

Oh please, don’t try to negate my argument by saying Apple goes after people for trademark infringement as well.  That wasn’t my point, and it would do you some good to go back to a critical thinking class and learn what a valid argument is to my post. 

I stated that record companies overall, not just Apple, are greedy as hell.  Believe me, I’ve worked with some majors before, and they’re all crooks.  So far, it looks like Def Jam, TVT, and a number of others are gearing up to sue Apple due to the fact that people are now hacking iTunes.  Never mind the fact that Apple actually had millions of downloads from the site, so they’re making SOME money.  The problem with the music industry is they want ALL the money. 

And I still think 99 cents a song is a pretty high cost.

question:  Is the adhesive closer to that you find on avery mailing labels or low tack like with PDA screen protectors.  If removed, is there a sticky residue left behind?

I Lost My iPod

Hi,
I simply named my I pod “if lost please call (my phone #).  Of course they would have to hook it up
to a computer.  There are a few honest people around.

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

Ill probably just go with the 10gb seeing as I need money and all. I also saw a case for 20 bucks so that’s not a problem. Space really isnt an issue with me. If I have to Ill delete something, I had to do that all the time with my cd case. things going in and out. Believe me theres a few cd’s that I really never needed.

Fox News: Will the Beatles Take

yes, i agree, the beatles are just a greedy franchise, robbing little old ladies of their pensions and taking the food out of african children’s mouths - good job there’s apple, the defenders of the poor, feeders of the third world. they will certainly fight the corner of the meek and helpless to pave the way for a brave new world empty of faceless money-hungry corporations like ringo starr.

grow up.

The Beatles sicken me, this is just pure greed, I’ve always hated their music. I hope someone gets rid of the remaining two.

I thought so too (10G was enough that is), then I finished college (last week) and now I have all this time on my hands.. so I listen to music and go fishing. Well now I’m about to run out of space on my 15G. But I love this thing (I wish the battery lasted longer).

The plot thickens. Now it appears that www.top40db.net has been shut down by the administrators. Does anybody know what is going on with this?

I got rid of it after a while, I just got pissed off at trying to find the right setting. But is the case and space the only problem with the 10gb? Cause i have 8gb of files, i dont think i could fill 10gb. that would be like another 20 albums. And I could always delete some.

Fox News: Will the Beatles Take

“And this Apple Corps lawsuit is completely petty and ridiculous.”

And Apple’s lawsuits against others who infringe on its trademarks are also petty???

No, if you don’t protect a trademark, you can lose a trademark (ala aspirin as a generic term in the US but trademarked in Canada). Apple (as the beatles) is justified in their lawsuit (if it happens).

However, I agree with KenGent that Apple would have foolish given the history not to have already worked this out.

Time (and lawyers) will tell…..

Fox News: Will the Beatles Take

You will notice that the article never explicitly says that Apple Records is going after Apple Computers. What it does is lay out a REASON Apple Records might have an action but again, I feel this would have been worked out beforehand.

“The Beatles, I am told, are gearing up for a fight”
He is told…sounds like a rumor site.

“One might assume that the exclusion…”
Trying to build a case for this prior “telling”

“A source at their very tony British law firm, Eversheds, says not to read anything into this.”
Covering his tracks, knowing someone’s going to correct him for this.

“Valner does not hesitate to move against infringers of the Beatle trademark…”
Reinforcing the premise…still no facts.

“I am told, has been “in meetings” as the Apple Computer story progresses in the newspapers.”
Trying to imply that the meetings are Apple meetings?

““They are very vigilant about pursuing these things.”
More weak reinforcement.

“The question now is how vigilant the Beatles will be concerning Apple Computer’s new business interests.”
Question? I thought he was TOLD…

I bought the 10G and a week later learned you can’t keep it from getting scratched (plus I filled it up with music) so rather than spend 40 bocks on a case I got traded for the 15G that comes with a case (it’s not the best case) but I loveit. Now back to the DFX I’ve tried the demo it sounds great.. But has anyone used the full version at a 128 bit rate? Does DFX really sound as cool on the Ipod with those cheesy earbuds?

Fox News: Will the Beatles Take

you would think that this might have been dealt with before they even released itunes music store, itunes, or the ipod. it was most likely some closed door deal, that none of us will ever know about. apple knows full well about apple corp, they have there butts covered in this one would think. i think the article is speculation

Fox News: Will the Beatles Take

Jeez.  Apple tries to do something to stem the tide of illegal digital distribution of music and what happens?  The record companies start suing.  Again.  As far as I’m concerned, I’m not buying another damn album until they stop this stupid, childish behavior and start trying to find real solutions for distributing music.

And this Apple Corps lawsuit is completely petty and ridiculous.

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

No you don’t get those unless you turn on 3d Surround, and Ambience. I hate these two settings because they make this “echo” sound to it. I highly reccomend turning up the fidelity, I used the “80’s Music - Grunge” setting and turned off both the Surround and 3d Setting and it sounded fine. Sometimes I get fed up and just turn it off, because I can’t find the perfect balance. Also I plan on getting an iPod within the next month, I was wondering if the 15gb iPod is really worth the extra 100 dollars. Thanks all.

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

After you’ve installed DFX, go to ‘File’ on musicmatch and then go down to ‘Convert Files…’ The box to check is at the bottom left corner once you’ve selected ‘Convert Files’ and the menu opens. I didn’t change the files that I have on my computer. I only changed the files copied off my iPod. When I listen to the music on my iPod now I can hear things in the music that I couldn’t. You can hear each instrument clearer and if you listen to hiphop you’ll hear all the little details that you couldn’t hear before. Don’t put all the settings on full. Listen through your headphones or speakers on your computer and adjust the settings to what you like so you don’t add too much of any setting. Am I the only one who has had success without any clicks/noise in their files?

The cracks and pops happen to me too. Try turning off 3d surround and ambience. Also it seems to do it more in Winamp than in Musicmatch. Now to encode them. Where exactly was “said” button. In Musicmatch window, in the DFX window, or in some drag down tab?
