    I work in London. Don't get me started on the cyclists! I'm not sure some of them realise they are bound by the same traffic laws as cars and that you must stop at a red light. I'll stick to my own two feet to get me around where feasible - I can trust those!!!!

    I agree with you. I prefer to be able to buy and download music for offline listening. I don't think Apple appreciates the internet isn't everywhere. There are plenty of cellular blackspots in London and some people still live in areas with dial up speeds for internet. Plus streaming caches all over the place over your devices and doesn't necessarily clean up after itself

    I don't get the whole streaming/subscription stuff anyway. How can you have a music chart based on streaming? There must be lots of accidental streams going on. How do they know how much to pay which artist? At least with a download that's a very obvious thing to measure and work out who gets paid what and how much.

    I would be interested if it was available for Windows Phone. So far, it does not seem to be. I thought the idea of these "Universal" apps was that they would run on ANY Windows 10 device.

    Why would Apple create a special version just got the Windoes Store, doesn't make sense?

    The iTunes app downloaded from the Windows Store is functionally the same as the one downloaded from Apple. The only difference is that the Windows Store version is compatible with Win 10 S devices. Couldn't find any info about 10 Lean.

    10 Lean is still leaked unofficial info. As far as I know, no official announcement on it.

    I though UK had better internet? They always pick on the USA for poor internet.

    Where I live it’s pretty good. 50mbits down, 12 up. But there are so many iffy areas not connected by fibre. Still reliant on copper connections and lucky to go above a couple mbits. BT rule the roost and despite having so much cash refuse to invest and roll out the fibre country wide. Greedy corporation that don’t really care about their product (bit like Apple and to a slightly lesser degree MS). I think Scandinavia is the place to be for great internet speed!

    Hi there

    Problem in London -- too many mega high concrete buildings in parts (plus zillions of "Buy to Leave" empty flats at 1 MILLION GBP a pop for Chinese investors and Russian Money deposits) -- 5GHZ Wifi while good doesn't travel well through piles of thick concrete !!!

    But in any case I still prefer to download music on to HDD and then copy what I want to any portable devices I have -- with streaming it's not possible to find a lot of the things you might want and how long in any case is the music currently on stream likely to be available for.

    I'm also in general against subscriptions for this that and the other -- before you know it you'll be spending out a lot of money every month without realising it.

    I got rid of PHONE subscription (pay as you go is cheap enough these days --that's around 40EUR a month saved, got rid of 90% of the SKY channels I don't watch - savings there of around 80 EUR a month - the films etc are available on NETFLIX / Amazon prime - just have SKY for SPORT mainly), amazon prime I-off yearly around 80 EUR .

    The only subscription things I do now is NETFLIX 4K UHD) at around 8 EUR, Decent Internet at 1Gb/s for around 25 EUR a month and energy/water which is negligible here. Property I own outright so nothing there to pay and I pay local city tax (local services etc - called different things in different countries) once a year (could get monthly on that but I prefer just to pay the whole chunk in one go and then it's gone for another year).

    Nordic countries might have cold dark winters but apart possibly from a very few areas they don't tend to have mega high concrete tower buildings occupying every possible space in the cities so less problem with Internet reception - especially on 5GHZ.

    This whole area sliding people into monthly subscriptions needs to be treated with care -- it's a pernicious way of getting shedloads of money without subscribers realizing it -- and even nastier -- if they change it from "Monthly Payment" - to a "Recurring Charge" it's very difficult to get the banks to stop paying it -- so look carefully at any contract and don't trust the Banks either.

    At least we did put some of our Bankers in Jail and let some Banks go bust during the Financial crisis !!!!! Private depositors i.e you and me type of people are guaranteed in EU and EEA up to 90,000 EUR against Bank failures (per Bank) anyway

    Still have a good weekend

    Cheers

    I installed it on my laptop and both look identical. You need to install the app for each account. Installing the app removes the desktop program and associated Apple software except Apple Application Support which I had to remove manually.
