It was a story that spread like wildfire across the internet yesterday— badass Hollywood action hero Bruce Willis was going to challenge Apple over the ability to will his enormous iTunes music collection to his daughter whenever it is when he passes away. Only the story was total bullshit, originally from the Daily Mail. As some of you pointed out, when someone dies, their iTunes stuff doesn’t go anywhere. All anyone would have to do would be to pass on the username and password.
Bruce Willis plans a long legal fight over the ability to will his iTunes music collection to his children
With physical collections of music or magazines, it’s simple— if you want to will them to someone when you die, you just say it and it happens. But in the age of digital everything and stuff stored in the cloud, what happens to digital items you purchased? Bruce Willis apparently has a massive digital music collection stored in iTunes, and he’s starting early to make sure whenever it is he dies, he can will it to his children, instead of all that music going back to Apple.
I wasn’t a fan of the first GI Joe movie, and I doubt the next one will be any better, but if there’s anything worth anything with the next GI Joe movie so far, it might be Bruce Willis as General Joe Colton, the original GI Joe character, from a looong time ago when the Joe figures were more like dolls.
At the Macworld Expo this year, in the absence of Apple, they had Kevin Smith as a keynote speaker for some reason. But in this clip, he talks about making Cop Out and how much working with Bruce Willis was nearly impossible and “soul crushing”.
