ROFL.....you can't be serious that there are that many people that care about the VMAs that it is taking down Apple's infrastructure. This ain't 1988.

Apple has great hardware, good software ... but at services they totally suck.

In my perfect world it would have been great if Google and Apple would have played well together with Apple providing the OS and the hardware and Google providing all the service related things.

Taylor Swift needs to give feedback. Apple doesn't listen to our feedback.

So what exactly do you do when you've agreed to announce something exclusively on a service that isn't working?

Hey Eddy: Everyone with your 16GB devices can do virtually nothing right now.

This is why people still want to own their music. All this cloud stuff can go down down down the drain. How is it just about EVERY other music service can stay up? Pandora has never once been down for me in almost 10 years. Apple might just need to throw in the towel on cloud services. They never can get them right.

How embarrassing. When does Eddy get taken to the woodshed over Apple's poor internet services?

Eddy Cue needs to get fired now. Apple web services / iCloud just do not work, obviously he is incapable of running the business and hiring the right talent.
