iTunes Match is Live! But follow these steps to convert your crummy-quality music in the FASTEST WAY POSSIBLE!

15 Nov

 

 

It’s been known that iTunes Match can upgrade all those gnarly low-quality files in your library to the high-quality ones in Apple’s cloud, but if you’ve got a lot of music, it could take forever to slog through your library one by one. So instead, once you’ve matched all your music, just do this:

 

  • Create a Smart Playlist in iTunes, selectingBit Rate less than 256 kbps, and Media Kindas Music.
  • Create a conditional Any of the following are true parameter, selecting iCloud Status is Matched as well as iCloud Status as purchased.
  • Once you are ABSOLUTELY SURE you’ve done this correctly go ahead and delete all of the files in Smart Playlist. It will be OK. Low-resolution files don’t have feelings, we swear.
  • Your tracks will still be there—but the files are gone so they’ll only be available in iTunes Match. Now all you have to do is instruct your iTunes to fill in all of those holes by downloading new files using iTunes Match. This can take a while—but it’ll be worth it.
  • The best part is you don’t have to do it all at once—you can update the music you play a lot first, and the leave the great multitude to download when you’re going to be away for a while. [MacWorld]

Storyverse is the most interesting future of books. The Pandora of books.

2 Nov

Suppose someone took every meaningful detail from all the books you love. Every song mentioned, every person, every food or place or movie title. And what if they did that for all the books everyone else loves, too. The ones you’ve never heard of.

Suddenly you’ve got a whole world of seemingly random people, places and things, all gathered in one place. Together they create something vast, wonderful and entirely new. A Storyverse.

A place where details touch, overlap and lead you further. To new music to listen to. New movies to watch. Places to visit. People to know. And of course, new books to read. Getting started is simple. Just choose a book. See where it takes you.
