Last week Apple announced their latest iPhone, and lots of grown men in trousers got very excited by this. But that wasn’t the only thing Apple did, they gave every single iTunes user a free copy of U2’s album – whether you wanted it or not.
Now I don’t really have an opinion on U2, my Dad might, but I don’t. The way I see it though is: the average age of an iPhone user is 34, give or take, and with the best will in the world U2’s fans are probably quite a bit older than that.
So if you’re anything like me you’ll want to get rid of this abomination before it suddenly comes on shuffle when you’re trying to impress your friends with your latest musical discoveries.
Unfortunately, Apple didn’t actually allow you to remove the album, whether you wanted to or not. Well, thankfully they’ve listened to reason, or the album, and have now allowed you to remove the album from your iTunes permanently.
Head over here and you’ll never have to suffer the indignity of Bono every again.
And next time Apple don’t even bother.
