    Try it from an older pc. It connects but doesn't charge.

    maldwyn What?

    The New iPad seems to take forever to charge via USB on my 2008 MBP. Much quicker to use the adaptor.

    Interesting. Seems it was a result that they bought it at PC World then :cool:

    Just discovered that iCloud doesn't stream your files *shakes fist* - that sucks. I should have done my research prior to purchase, really, as I bought the 16GB thinking I'd only need the hdd for apps.

    No massive drama, thankfully AudioGalaxy solves that problem, and iTunes Match + iCloud acts as a backup.

    iTunes Match does stream your audio :confused: I've done it several times, though it knackers the battery on 3G so I usually have it turned off.

    There's an app :) called Video stream that should work for vids as well,never bothered trying it myself.

    It plays it instantly when you begin to download a song, but it doesn't stream. I.E. you have to have an instance of the mp3 on your device. With only 16GB of space, I don't want that.

    The brand is Moleskine. There's also a fabric known as moleskin.

    You have a holding file, smaller than the actual MP3.

    I have access to 12k tunes on mine, I can't fit 12k on it though...

    Got a link? It's not that I don't believe you, I'm just curious as to how to works. Cheers!

    No, I was just looking at it through iPhone explorer.

    Actually, isn't this iTunes match you need? That syncs your library, not just iCloud alone I think...

    Once that analysed all my songs, they were available on all devices.

    I have iTunes Match.

    This is why I ask:

    "So, wait. Do my iTunes Match songs stream, or download?

    On a Mac, any cloud-stored songs will (by default) stream over the air when played, though you can download them at any time by clicking the iCloud download button. On an iOS device, though, you’re required to download the track in full—possibly so that you’ll be able to listen to that song even if your network connection shorts out. Your track will start to play before it finishes downloading, so you’ll be able to listen to any track you pick almost immediately. Apple TVs only have the option to stream songs, as they don’t have any storage capability."

    Everybody just calls them mole-skins though.

    (I don't use them, the paper is crap and won't take fountain pen ink.)

    I don't really use this so some may be bullshit.If you swipe a song in music a delete button comes up,I assume this works with playlists and genres as well but have never tried it,not doubt I will if I start running out of space,after deleting the iCloud symbol comes back so you can download again if you want.

    Aha, I see what you mean now. Really?! I refuse to use that as well. It sounds like I'm doing a bad 'herdy gerdy' Scandinavian accent.

    Yeah, this is true. But what a faff. I'll stick to Audiogalaxy. I can use that with Android n' all.

    Why pay for itunes match when plex is free?
  24. ChrisFilter

    ChrisFilter Like a boss.

    Because for £22 iTunes match has just legalised several years' worth of hooky MP3s. And completed missing album art. And upgraded them all to high quality versions.

    Good point. I hadnt thought of that.

    have you got many mp3's it hasnt got? Does it trash ones that arent on itunes?

    It could be tempting I think....

    Also when your subscription runs out do you still get to keep the upgraded files?
  26. Kanda

    It uploaded (or said it was) all my DJ mixes and such... so they were available on all devices and I guess to update their end in case someone else had a similar file name.
  27. Crispy

    It doesn't trash anything, and the converted files are yours to keep when you cancel the subscription.
    I'm very tempted by it, if only to get all my music at work. If I get round to putting a SIM in my ipad, even better.
  28. ChrisFilter

    No, it uploads ones that aren't on iTunes and makes them available in the cloud. Doesn't come out of your iCloud storage allowance, either.

    What I was worried about was losing stuff that is hard to find etc......

    Maybe I should take a backup of my tunes, then do it :hmm:
