Today I wanted to use it as a BT (no dice) or remote for iTunes. It’s got like prehistoric iOS (maybe 3.0) and is no longer even upgradeable. Won’t connect to the Internet. Won’t connect to the App Store. I guess I’m lucky it says it is connecting to my network.
There will be no air tunes with this thing. It is a truly obsolete piece of tech. Not even sure it will connect to iTunes. I may try. Said it had 1400 pieces of music on it. I was keeping Holiday type music on it. Sadly with the limited connectivity inherent in it’s *old* tech I don’t think I can use it for what I was going to.
Some one else might want it, though. I’ll look into it. Well crap. Oh well. I’ll figure out a way to bend the tech to my will.
Didn’t do much of anything today. Dunno why, Guess I just wasn’t in the mood for much. Just hung out around the apt.
Been farting about with the Remote app / iTunes / various pieces of connected equipment tonight.
Also played for a bit with the Airfoil App. A lot of the same functionality that’s built into AirTunes (or whatever the hell they call it now). And it did it BEFORE AirTunes was around.
Program seems to have an 4 - 8 second delay built into the controls. Hit [pause] for instance, and there is a rather pregnant pause before it pauses… Anything. *laughs* Airfoil still has it place of course. Just not for what I’m fooling with.
Listening to Across the Graveyard by Roÿksopp. Interesting tune. Can’t even remember why I picked this one up. But I’m glad I did.
And now Adagio for Strings, Op. 11, Bernstein and the LA Philharmonic. A moving piece. Sends me places. From the Gershwin’ Rhapsody in blue - Copland’.
And I’ve said enough.
