       1090 words, 6 minutes

Yesterday, I read (again) about iTunes Match. I already knew about that service but felt like it was useless to me. Read more about iTunes Match on it’s official Webpage . Short story is: iTunes Match is a Cloud service that scans your actual iTunes music library, checks which music iTunes knows about and enables you to get that music from any of your device, using your iTunes account. The service costs about $30 per year and is limited to 25000 songs and 10 devices.

Non il n’est pas question ici d’excès de vitesse ; encore que. Un flashcode, qu’est-ce-que c’est ? Dans un premier temps, Flashcode, c’est une marque. Mais bon, on dit tous “j’ai plus rien dans mon frigo”… Le flashcode, c’est une image représentant des informations ; de la même manière qu’un code-barre au dos d’un paquet de céréales. Ok… et donc, ça sert à quoi ?
