when i started having problems with my iCloud account i was told it’s something i was doing wrong. i was a special flower. that i was holding it wrong. http://yourhead.tumblr.com/post/129114741206/my-cursed-apple-id
now others are having similar issues. http://inessential.com/2016/02/06/stop_watch
it’s sad. it could have been fixed. but instead it was ignored.
current iCloud account status: unusable. software and music bought there is stranded.
