Apple on Monday released SOI Removal , a one-click tool for removing Songs of Innocence , the free U2 album the company gave its customers . This was necessary, apparently, because a vocal number of entitled, narcissistic gits found whinging about free music easier than ignoring it, hiding it, or...gasp...not downloading it.
The company issued a statement Monday from Senior Vice President Eddy Cue with the first usage numbers for the surprise "Songs of Freedom" release by the company. Apple gave the album to 500 million iTunes account holders last week during the company's iPhone 6 unveiling news conference.

Apple is a habitual party crasher, but can the company's history of arriving late and making a big splash in various gadget categories continue with the Apple Watch? The technology company was a late entrant into many of its most prominent product categories: the iPod wasn't the first digital music player and the iPad wasn't the first tablet. But in most cases, the innovation the company infused into its devices ignited previously dormant markets - - and Apple products became "must haves."
Prior to the iPhone 6 event it was reported that iconic rock band U2 will be performing at the event. Even though one such report was rubbished just one day before the event it was reported once again that U2 will be present at the launch .
Apple Inc.
