Bid Adieu to U2? How to Remove Music from Your iTunes Library

Screen Shot 1

At the recent iOS 8/iPhone 6 launch event, Apple surprised iTunes users with a gift: The new U2 album “Songs of Innocence” is available for free to all iTunes users.

To make things even easier, this new album automatically shows up in your iTunes account as something you’ve already purchased—though you haven’t. So now any iTunes user can listen to or download the album as if they had purchased it in the iTunes store.

For me, this is great. I love U2! New U2 record for free? Yes, please.

But not everybody shares my opinion. It turns out lot of people don’t want the record. A music collection is a very personal thing and some folks don’t want music that they didn’t hand-select to show up in their music library.

So how do you remove the U2 album — or anything else — from your library?

Keep Up with Technology — and Keep Your Career Afloat

2014_09_07_KeepUpTech

I’ll be the first to admit I’m no spring chicken. Over the past 20 years, I’ve personally witnessed major changes in the workplace and the way we do business, thanks to the evolution of technology.

They call it “progress” and for the most part, these changes have been for the better. But new graduates, who were born into a high-tech world and do almost everything with technology, have a distinct advantage over existing workers who feel like they’re being left behind while struggling to keep up with all the changes.

Yes, getting lazy about learning new technology is a great way to kiss your career goodbye. But staying relevant doesn’t have to be scary—or even difficult.

2014_09_04_PasswordSecure

As you may have heard, earlier this week several celebrities had photos of a personal nature stolen from their computers or mobile devices, which were then shared and distributed online.

The celebrity photo hack story is still unfolding, and while it’s not completely clear how their devices and cloud-based accounts were accessed in each case, we thought this would be a good time to review some basic steps you should be following to make sure your personal files—and your internet privacy—are secure.
