Adobe viert feest vandaag, want Photoshop bestaat deze dag 30 jaar. Het fotobewerkingsprogramma deed op 19 februari 1990 zijn intrede op de Mac en heeft sindsdien de nodige ontwikkelingen meegemaakt. Niet alleen op functionaliteit, maar ook is Adobe met photoshop,…
Na een leuke en interessante periode van bijna 8 jaar, met meer dan 2300 nieuwsberichten, meer dan 30 gepubliceerde reviews, en live tekstverslaggeving van de meeste keynote-presentaties, hebben we besloten om te stoppen met deze website, AppleNieuws.com.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman today reported that Apple is working to allow third-party music services like Spotify and Pandora to be streamed directly on the HomePod with Siri in a future software update, as is possible with Apple Music. Spotify currently can only be streamed on the HomePod via AirPlay.
The report adds that Apple is also considering allowing third-party music services to be set as default in iOS 14, which would let users ask Siri to stream music from the likes of Spotify without specifying "with Spotify" at the end of the command. Siri currently defaults to Apple Music for these requests.
Apple ignores users' preferred choice of music service and instead steers them to use Apple Music exclusively. So can you ask Siri to play your favorite playlist from Spotify? No, not even if you actively want Spotify to be your default streaming service. Or can you listen to Spotify through your Apple HomePod? Sorry, no luck with that either. And by the way, Spotify is available on pretty much every other speaker device out there.
Apple has faced increasing scrutiny as of late over the way it runs its App Store, beyond Spotify's complaint. Allowing third-party apps to be set as default would certainly help alleviate some of those concerns.
ROLI’s Songmaker Kit (www.ROLI.com) is a portable music studio for creating a track anywhere. It combines the Seaboard Block and Lightpad Block M, two cutting-edge controllers.
The tactile, touch-responsive surfaces of these Blocks — both released within the past year — introduce a new way to shape sound and create songs. The Loop Block, which helps to record tracks and toggle between sounds, completes the kit.
