The mouse came with it. I picked up the gesture pad because I think I'll use that more.

Gah, I have an issue.

The external hard drive with all my music I want to import is incompatible with as is with the iMac. So when I attempt for iTunes to import, alerts come up that the drive needs to me reformatted.

I don't necessarily want to bring all that music onto my iMac. I was hoping to keep it on the external drive.

I think I have to play music shuffle. Export it all to flash drives. Reformat the external, and then have iTunes use the external as the repository. Then put all the mp3's back onto the external.

Thoughts?

Don't get Apple Music.  Seriously, don't get Apple Music.  And be sure to back up your files.  F*ck, i accidentally got a month of iCloud service and it f*cked up my podcast backlog.

F*ck this sh1t and f*ck them for hiding this in the terms of service so they can't be sued over it.

Apple Music is still around? I thought they went away in the same manner that MySpace did. Sorry you're going through this sh*t.

It's just the podcasts, not a big deal.  I'm not nearly as screwed as the guy in the article.  But yes, Apple Music is still around and Trent Reznor is doing a redesign, because that's what the problem was, the interface, not screwing customers out of their music collection and taking away the right to sue them about it.

See, every time they take away a feature like a disc drive or cut down on hard drive space or tell us the future is tablets and we don't need computers themselves, I'm extremely wary, because I know they want to pull more sh1t like this.

External hard drives forever!  Modify hardware forever!

So I've been putting up with the Apple Designed Keyboard that came with the IMac, but in the back of my mind, have been frustrated with it every time I use it. I use a standard keyboard all day long and to come home to my home office and use this redesigned compact keyboard was just getting on my last damn nerve.

MassDrop just sent me their weekly deal and I noticed the Azio MK Keyboard. Things clicked, I investigated and decided to get it. Hopefully this new keyboard will help solve the other issue that occurs when you have the track pad. randomly the key strokes transfer into runaway keyboard process and you can't use the computer anymore. It needs to be restarted. This is a known problem, for quite some time and can't believe there's no fix for it.

I'm so married to my Macbook chiclet keyboard-- the same one I can see Mac rejecting-- that when I had to use a different keyboard at work today, one of those curved ergonomic ones, I couldn't use it for sh*t.  I went from being able to type ... I dont' even know how many words per minute-- a flurry-- into being as slow as a slug.

I forgot how much I like Apple until I had to use Windows.  And not even a LOT of windows.  Just a little.  Ick.

I will admit that I did see one external keyboard that I might like... in the bin at McKays, this used stuff place (it calls itself a bookstore but it has used everything).  What caught my eye was the lettering, it was the old school letters that the old Apple keyboards had when I was a kid.  Like this:
