My tech recommendations are to avoid Windows 10 upgrades and the Apple Music program.
Even if you get a free upgrade from Windows 8.X, I don’t think it is worth it. I haven’t seen any real benefits in speed or reliability. And I have seen lots of annoying things, such as the file shortcuts (when you right click on tray icons) disappearing randomly. Hopefully they will fix these with updates. Whatever you do, don’t pay for an upgrade.
Apple Music is far worse. Seemed like a great idea at the time: Unlimited music downloads, “radio” stations with unlimited skips, etc. for only $10/mo. individual and $15/mo. family.
The problem? It doesn’t work and destroys various things. Even after re-downloading some songs they still won’t work. My audio Bible didn’t play any longer and I had to re-do that. It ruined some complicated playlists.
Worst of all, it wouldn’t let me load the songs on my iPod Shuffle — an Apple device! Hey, that’s great. Unlimited music that you can’t play where you want it.
Apple is really going downhill. It is hard to believe they could come up with such a lousy product. They really blew it on this one. They would have had a consistent revenue stream from me for the foreseeable future. Now they will get nothing.
