It would seem that Apple could solve many of its problems with its tremendous cash pile, but I’m not so sure a rash of app acquisitions would help. After all, Apple Music was born out of Beats Music, but everything people loved about it was all but stripped away. Apple had made it clear that it isn’t going to sacrifice its vision for the easy way out, so we may have to deal with a few more rounds of bugs while it all gets ironed out.
If we’re still dealing with these nagging issues in two or three years, then I’ll be worried. And maybe by then someone will get around to fixing iTunes.
