  1. OK, Where the he** is the Mac version???
    Take a look at my comments a few days ago regarding the “teaser” MWN piece claiming an imminent release of Apple Music Classical. My expectations are lower now than they were then – just adding a new chunk of spaghetti code to add to the existing tangled mess that it has to interact with. C’mon Apple, you can do better than this. It makes you look like a bunch of inept fools.
    Apple Lisa & Mac customer since 1984, lotsa iOS stuff since then, too.

  2. Total bust from what I hear. Someone lost interest and the project went half a$$ed.

    Be nice to hear where it went wrong. From the purchase? or to the app work? Budgets? Who said just push out something we’ll worry about it later? Hard to say. It’s about a year late.

    Maybe they just realized that streaming classical music doesn’t have enough following of a following.

    I assume it’ll be integrated into the music app after a while and forgotten.
