From the start, I’ve had some trouble managing my music collection between Apple’s ecosystem and Google’s ecosystem. The initial version of Google’s Music Manager (used to upload songs from iTunes to Google Play Music) did not support ALAC, though it did support FLAC. However, save for some plugins that often have issues, iTunes doesn’t support FLAC.
I’d visited Seattle before as part of a larger group among whom decision-making is often ceded to the more “responsible” members of the party. The primary concern of “what to do” included “what to drink,” “what to eat,” and “which landmarks should we see.” I certainly enjoyed that experience, but with a much smaller group I spent some more time idly exploring downtown Seattle.
I’d chalked up the hate storm against the Wii U as the typical reaction from the Call-of-Duty types that seem to pervade gaming these days, with their graphically superior next generation consoles and their foul temperaments that seemed inextricably linked. In my own attempts to reconnect with my latent hobby, I found it difficult to become interested in the graphical prowess of the Vita, the sprawling RPGs of the PS3, or the kinetic shooters of the Xbox 360.
