Microsoft is doing a better Apple impression than Apple is

View the video via: https://youtu.be/WVPRkcczXCY

Apple and Microsoft have both announced new computers this week built for professionals, and while the companies’ hardware may be very different, the way they’re selling these new devices is eerily similar. Check out the MacBook Pro overview from Apple above, then watch Microsoft’s introduction for the Surface Studio. Okay, so one has a Jony Ive voiceover and the other has a dramatic cover of “Pure Imagination,” but the general arc of the videos — the narrative they’re trying to tell the consumer — is the same.

surface-studio1

We start with the camera lingering on polished, machined surfaces; gleaming chrome and impregnable aluminum. The inner components break apart as if in zero gravity, giving us a chance to see how each individual part fits together, and then the whole thing reassembles like a slow-mo explosion in reverse. A human enters the frame, touching the computer and bringing it to life. For Microsoft that means adjusting the Studio’s display, for Apple it’s activating the Touch Bar, but the meaning is shared — we put all this together. Even the test footage used to show off the screens is the same: explosions of colorful powder surely inspired by photographs of the Hindu festival of Holi.

Of course, none of this cinematography is uncommon (what’s rare is Apple and Microsoft announcing new computers back to back). Tech companies of all stripes have been using the slow-mo-component-explosion shot for years as way to show off the engineering that’s gone into making these devices. What’s perhaps most interesting is the reactions to the two videos. The Apple one seems unremarkable, but Microsoft’s is genuinely exciting.

The question is: why? It could be a result of over-familiarity with Jony Ive videos, which follow a familiar cadence but are so unchanging they almost slip into self-parody. It could be that Microsoft’s video is just better — the music pushes all sorts of emotional buttons, and we get to see the Studio and its peripherals just do more. But there might also be a larger issue with brand. Both companies seem like they’re repositioning themselves; with Microsoft pushing into the professional creative market, and Apple moving the MBP more mainstream (e.g. emoji on the Touch Bar). The former move is, to me at least, more exciting.

Better match and sync Apple Music to iTunes Match

Apple Music allows users to sync and match the paid music songs of iTunes, but it has clashes with iTunes Match.

applemusic

Finally Apple Inc. seems to fix this problem. According to the Loop news, iTunes Match can match and sync with iCloud Music and paid music with voiceprint pairing. This seems better that Apple Music sync with the old version of iTunes Match by metadata to pairing.

After the new version’s update, Apple Music can match the music data correctly, and won’t match the concert version with the studio version by mistake. This is very great.

In other words, in the new version, if you are an Apple Music users, you can also get the iTunes Match service.

If you find, iCloud state of iTunes has set in “paired (Matched)” word, as evidenced by the new functionality has been added to your Apple Music, no, then it may be because the data is still being paired it.

Apple reportedly planning big Apple Music overhaul for June

 

imagesAccording to the latest report from Bloomberg, Apple is planning to unveil an overhauled and improved version of its Apple Music streaming service at their Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in June.

The revamped version of Apple Music will reportedly include an all-new interface that’s “more intuitive to use”. The company will also improve the integration between their music streaming and download services, and online radio features will be expanded.

To those who closely follow or use Apple Music, it’s no surprise that the company wants to improve the service in the near future. Apple hasn’t really added any new functionality to Music since it launched last year, despite many criticizing it for a lack of features compared to other music streaming services like Spotify.

Apple will launch a big marketing push for Apple Music alongside the release of the overhauled service. While Music currently has around 13 million subscribers, Spotify enjoys a paid subscriber base around 30 million, with 75 million in total listening on an active basis. The marketing push will help Apple claim a bigger slice of the music streaming pie.

Alongside a revamped Apple Music, Apple is expected to unveil new versions of Mac OS X and iOS at WWDC. There’s also a change we may see a new version of the MacBook Pro as well as the Apple Watch.
