    ******tification of the Apple Ecosystem (Music, TV/Film, Apps)

    /rambling_rant The incredible and astute Cory Doctorow coined the word enshtiffication (******tification: The 2023 Digital Word of the Year), mostly to describe how online communities would be destroyed by predatory business models (e.g. MySpace, Twitter).

    Error in audiotrack on Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 from iTunes Store in 4K

    I bought the movie on the Danish Apple iTunes Store, and have contacted Apple to report an error with the movies audiotrack.

    DolbyVision on AppleTV

    I have a 4K AppleTV, 2nd gen I think, and a Samsung TV that supports HDR10+ but not DolbyVision. However, when I watch Netflix from the AppleTV app, the DolbyVision tag shows up on the movies.

    It has happened a few times already that my Apple TV remote gets "stuck" sending the same input over and over again. It usually happens with the volume up button, which makes it all the more annoying cause the volume will almost instantly jump to 100. I knew the problem was with the remote as...

    Who asked for this stupid mute button… and right in the same place where you’ve been trained to press play/pause all these years… so annoying… if I wanted the sound to stop I’d hit pause… I can think of far more useful buttons if they were gonna add stuff….
