I wanted to post the following as a comment to the news at http://petergabriel.com/media/article/2828/introducing-the-musictiles-app/, but then I found out that I have to become a member of facebook to post the comment. I was negatively surprised about the amount of exclusiveness in both, the software and the webpage.
Here my comment which was meant to be posted at http://petergabriel.com/media/article/2828/introducing-the-musictiles-app/.
""I have always loved the idea that music and art should be fully open media from which no-one is excluded. They are languages that anyone can learn to speak and definitely not the exclusive province of the high priests armed with 'Talent '." Peter"
This is a very appreciable premise, however, by providing such software only for one very exclusive platform, quite a few million (if not billion) people are being excluded. So, the fact that MusicTiles is only available for Apple products renders the statement not credible. It's long ago that Apple products were the best choice for Multimedia processing. Nowadays, you have products of equal quality in the public domain, where every product with the above claim should be placed. Ever heard about the Free Software Foundation? "

I second your post - I think you are right.
I suppose, apple users live in their own world, can't even imagine, someone has no iPhone, iPod, iPad whatsoever ...
Is Peter a little naive?
... sad, because I'd like to play around with his music, too, but shall never buy any apple, whole thing is a little sour

Personally I don't mind the £1.99 price but I do need it to be on Android.

i-whatever, this is an example of the age-old practice known as scraping the barrel.
i-really can't be bothered.
It's just more easy $$$ for PG - it's easy to see why he can't be bothered with "new stuff" when the old stuff still brings it in. Time after flippin' time.
God PG - how did you become so boring?

You pay for the app, but after you need to pay for each additional PG song. In the end it costs 12 Euros ...
