Brett Singer Live has returned! Listen to it right here!
Next time we’ll get someone else to be on the air with me. Will it be you? It might be. Let me know on the Facebooks or the Twitters if you’re interested. Several fine folks have already said they will join me in my media endeavor, which is greatly appreciated.
But I’m back! Let’s go!
Black Friday 2015 has come and gone but there are still deals to be found.
$100 iTunes Code for only $80 – Email Delivery in Gift Cards & Coupons, Digital Gifts | eBay
Yes, I’m suspicious as well. But the source is, according to the eBay page I’m looking at right now, PayPal Digital Gifts. eBay owns PayPal. So, you know, there’s that. So why would Apple let them sell $100 iTunes Gift Cards for $80, which is literally like getting free money? (Assuming you want to spend that money in the iTunes store.) I have no idea. Caveat buyor, as we say. But this appears to be legit.
One thing from the comments — you may not get the code right away. This comment amused me: “The description says delivered within minutes. I guess the definition of minutes is loose because technically a year is 525600 minutes…” (Cue Seasons Of Love from Rent.)
To be fair, the item description does say that it could take “up to 24 hours” for the code to show up in your email Inbox. BUT the intro text does say, “Delivered in minutes (Exceptions apply)”. As of this writing, they’ve sold 142 codes in the past hour. Hit the link below for the deal. And happy Thanksgiving!

This is one of those features that was never necessary, or at least shouldn’t be turned on by default.
Luckily there is a simple way to turn it off. From Apple’s Support website:
Click iTunes -> preferences -> General -> Under “Notifications”, uncheck “when song changes”
What a relief!
Here’s some screenshots for ya:
Thank you carpetfiber101 for the tip.
I’m trying out Spotify Premium on my Sonos and so far I love it. I want my kids to have good taste in music, or at least be able to introduce them to bands that they wouldn’t otherwise experience. Regular radio — top 40 — stinks, with very few choices and far too many songs by Ke$ha. I don’t want to force my taste onto my kids, but I do want to share my musical interests with them. Spotify Premium is a good way to do this without buying every album or downloading stuff illegally. Of course, not everything I listen to is free of dirty words. I’m no prude, but sometimes I’d prefer to have the kids listen to the non-explicit version of an album. So how to find the clean version on Spotify? Read more »
