Apple To Increase Size Of Data Center

Reportedly, Apple is increasing the size of its still-unfinished data center in Norh Carolina. Some people say it’s for Apple’s upcoming streaming music service, but I highly doubt it. Music providers won’t even allow Apple to make longer previews, so streaming music seems like a stretch at this point. I’m willing to bet that it’s for one of (or all of) three things:

  • Ping. If it ever gets bigger, Apple will need an infrastructure big enough to handle it.
  • Apple TV. Apple needs the servers for Apple TV’s streaming service.
  • Mac App Store. iOS apps are mostly small in size, whereas Mac OS X apps are not. Apple needs power to handle numerous simultaneous downloads of possibly large files, especially if giants like Autodesk and Adobe ever make it into the Mac App Store.

Mac App Store

C’mon, we all saw this happening. It’s convenient for average users, and the auto-update feature is much appreciated as well. But please keep Mac OS X open, as in allow anybody to develop for it and not have to pass through Apple’s draconian App Store review process.

Garageband 2011

So apparently it has this feature which corrects bad timing, it’s like autotune but for bad guitarists. Maybe I’m being a bit too cynical when I can already foresee a whole new generation of pop music where musicians can’t even stay in 4/4 time. Joy to the world.
