What would you change about iTunes Music?
Apple says music is in the company's DNA, but what needs to be in its music offering?
The original iPhone shipped with an iPod app that played the music you synced over via USB from iTunes on the desktop. A half a year later it was joined by the iTunes Store app, and you could buy music directly. Eventually, you could even buy over cellular. Then came iCloud and re-downloads, the short-lived Ping social music network, iTunes Match as a music locker, and iTunes Radio as music stations. Then Apple bought beats, and as a result we didn't hear much about music for a while. Now rumor has it Apple has a new music service on the way for iOS 9, to be previewed perhaps as early as WWDC 2015 on June 8. But what do you want from it?

How to add spaces to your Mac's Dock using Terminal
Want to better separate the apps within your Dock? Try adding a space to break them up.
OS X Yosemite's Dock gives you a handy way of launching applications that you use the most frequently with a single click. To organize them, you can click and drag them around however you like. What you can't do, at least not directly from within the Dock's preferences, is divide up the apps using an easy visual separator. Fortunately, there's a workaround — if you're comfortable using the Terminal command line.

Leather Loop band for Apple Watch review
The Leather Loop band for the 42mm Apple Watch is made of quilted Venezia leather from Arzignano, Italy, and has a magnetic closure, making it both comfortable and endlessly adjustable.
I ordered the black version of the Leather Loop the same time I ordered my Black Steel Apple Watch. I just loved the way it looked at the Apple events and was eager to try it out. The Loop arrived a couple of weeks before my watch, but I had a stainless steel review unit, so it gave me a chance to try that pairing first. Since then I've been wearing the Leather Loop, off and on, for almost a month now and under a wide variety of circumstances. So, how's it holding up?

How to read email on your Apple Watch
You can't send email from your Apple Watch, but you can read any email sent to you.
While you can use your Apple Watch to dictate text message replies, the inability to edit text makes the same system ill-suited for longer and potentially more complex emails. So, there's no Siri for Mail, but there is a read-only version of the Mail app on your Apple Watch. You can see what's been sent your way, and can even mark mail as unread, flag it, and delete it. To respond, however, you'll have to hand off to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Here's how it all works!

Help your friends find you by sending your location to them via Messages!
Meeting your friends somewhere and can't dictate the address perfectly? You can use your Apple Watch's "Send Location" feature to give them easy directions to your whereabouts.

The Apple Watch is a hot cup of convenience
As I pull the car into the Starbucks drive-thru, my husband says, "Oh, sorry, I thought you said you wanted coffee."
"Close enough," I tell him, and order a grande coffee with cream. He orders a breakfast sandwich. It's a Saturday morning and our family is headed to the beach for the day, about an hour and a half west of Portland.
That's right: we live in Portland, Oregon, hipster capital of the Pacific Northwest, where you can find some of the best coffee in the country. And yet, sometimes, we go to Starbucks.
