Apple has released a tool to remove U2’s new album from its customers’ iTunes accounts six days after giving away the music for free.
Some users had complained about the fact that Songs of Innocence had automatically been downloaded to their devices without their permission.
It had not been immediately obvious to many of the account holders how to delete the tracks.
The US tech firm now offers a one-click removal button.
Great headline. Great story. Great everything. This is just great.
Be interesting to know how many people yanked this thing off of their systems.
The U2 album thing was pretty outrageous, frankly.
They could have simply made it free to download, and sput out some media alerting the masses of its free availability.
But cramming it down EVERYONE’s throats? Outrageous. It really is. It’s just the most crass thing. It’s so presumptive.
It’s just more indicative of the luster falling off of Apple as they now feel compelled to drive after market share rather than simply focusing on product.
