    Hey, I was just surfing AppleMusic.com, and noticed that instead of the link to commercials at the top, it had a link to Steve's keynote. I typed in http://www.apple.com/music/ads/ and got "Page Not Found"... Do you think they finally noticed that the little kid said "sh*t"?

    P.S. Sorry if this was posted elsewhere. I did a search for "music ads" and didn't find any relevent posts.

    How odd.

    If anyone is interested, though, I happen to have the ads, and I'll be happy to post them on my .Mac site. Let me know if you want them and I'll give y'all the address.

    Apple has noticed when I had other illicit things on my iDisk, though, and they did send me a threatening email. These are somewhat less illicit, though, and certainly less illegal; I hardly think they should complain about my posting their own advertisements.

    Anyway, you're quite welcome. It's no problem :)

    Re: Floyd

    That's odd - it works on all my computers. Maybe try again? And do the others work for you?

    From the lyrics I've read, he uses the phrase "This whole rap sh*t". The lyrics could be wrong, I don't listen to Eminem... but it sounds right to me.

    No, I had builds of Safari on my iDisk, too, because someone on these boards requested them. Apple sent me a note saying that if I had illegal things on my iDisk again, they'd revoke my membership. It was not a friendly email!

    Bennet: Floyd still works for me. I can't figure out why it wouldn't for somebody else. If you want, PM me with your screen name and I can send him to you over iChat later today.

    Wish your mothers happy mothers' day, everyone.

    I'm glad they got rid of the ads, they were horrible!
    I'm thinking that they would do better if they went the way of the GAP commercials a few years ago, you remember the ones w/ Aerosmith and other artist just doing there thing, just singing one of there songs being all cool. That's what they should do, show artist, not ugly people trying to sing.

    I don't know about you, but that girl Tyra singing "Get this Party Started" is not ugly in my book.

    Well, during the presentation Steve did mention that the ads weren't finished.

    On a related note, there is a two-full-page ad in the new Entertainment Weekly magazine advertising the music service.

    Actually it's "This whole rhaposody"

    To me is sounds even like a little pun, considering OSX grew out of the remains of the Rhaposody project.
