Anyone else bothered by how crappy apple names stuff these days?

iTunes lets you rent/buy movies. Apple Music lets you subscribe to video.

How about they call it Apple Entertainment and make a coherent whole out of this crap mire they’ve created. I know it might require them to stop their major innovations, like last year’s amazing wrist strap color innovations of yellow and orange, but you know, it might be worth it to add coherence to the product line rather than modeling it to universe dying entropy.


Yes. Yes. I think those “on the inside” are losing sight of it.
Example: I know I forget about it when I rent movies from iTunes because I’m so used to it. But I’m not an Apple music subscriber, and I’m still puzzled about having to subscribe to Apple Music to see their new original TV Shows. A big, serious, WTF.
