FUN: Listening to “Dear Boss” ℅ “Irish Pub Radio” on TUNNIN radio app

Thursday, July 5, 2012

… some of the songs are absolutely great.

Puts me back in the Red Garter, Gerdie’s Folk City, or the other clubs in the 60′s Village.

Just listened to “Dear Boss”, a Clancy Brothers’ classic — I remember taking dates — those gals who preceded Our Girl and Our Girl to their concerts — I went to lots of those — … …

… … any way, back to “Dear Boss”, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a funnier “dumb” song. It was funny to me then; it’s still funny today.

Sigh!.

Getting Started: MP3 Store and Cloud Player for Web on iPad

Frequently Asked Questions

The Amazon MP3 Store on iPad lets you shop one of the world’s largest DRM-free (digital rights management free) digital music stores and save your purchases for free to Amazon’s online storage service, Amazon Cloud Drive. Purchases stored in Amazon Cloud Drive are available for playback from any iPad, Mac, PC, or Android device and available for download from any Mac, PC, or Android device using the free web browser-based application Amazon Cloud Player.

OK, first time I’ve “found” a significant flaw in the AMAZON_CLOUD with the IPAD.

You can play your music, BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), you can’t copy it TO the IPAD.

That means you have to be connected to the INET and play YOUR music, that you’ve bought, with their application.

Argh!

The quest is now on for a work around.

No easy workaround.

(yet)

Why if I buy the song from APPLE_ITUNES does it get downloaded to the IPAD’s version, but if I buy it from AMAZON it can’t be?

Restraint of trade by technology?

# – # – # – # – #

Well it’s there. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), you have to go thru ITUNES to get it to the IPAD. The downside is that it makes extra copies on the desktop in ITUNES.

Argh!
