A farewell for iTunes

New York Times:

Dearly beloved,

We are gathered here today to say goodbye to our friend iTunes, who went to the great trash can in the sky on Monday.

It was a gentle, dignified passing. ITunes was surrounded by family and friends at Apple’s annual developer conference when Apple executives announced that it would be dismantled, and its features would be split among three apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV.

It’s been fascinating to watch the reaction to Apple “killing” iTunes.
