Transfer iPhone Purchases To iTunes Library Before UpDating This iPhone

Ok, so you were as excited as I was to update my iPhone 5 to the latest IOS version 7. Upon clicking the update button you get a popup with this notification:

iphone-purchases-to-itunes-library

 

There are purchased items on the iPhone *** that have not been transferred to your iTunes library. You should transfer these items to your iTunes library before updating this iPhone. Are you sure you want to continue?

A few iTunes versions ago you would see your device in the left hand side, but seems Apple has gone the way of Microsoft and they now love to continue re-arranging the GUI (graphical user interface) so we have to search for something simple. The above screenshot is current as of September 2013…so here’s the skinny:

Go to iTunes menu bar (top left) and select File>>>Devices>>>Transfer Purchases

What would be even more intuitive is for Apple to include button or link to do this automatically while the warning popup is glaring you in the face.

Hope this helps someone.

 

Bed Intruder Gone Viral On Youtube

I love following videos that go viral on Youtube. Bed Intruder was born out of a news report and then auto-tuned and turned into a song by the Gregory brothers.

The original version was released on July 31, 2010 and as of today the video has received nearly 11,000,000 views. That’s over 500,000 views per day on average. The video also has over 300 cover songs which I won’t list here. I’ll be launching another site called Viral Video Marketing where I’ll be showcasing videos that go viral.

“Bed Intruder” in just +/- 20 days has turned Antoine Dodson into a celebrity with a T-shirt line and numerous radio and television interviews. I’m predicting he’ll get a reality show offer when all is finished. The Gregory brothers have numerous news clips and speeches that they have auto-tuned, but Bed Intruder is certainly their new claim to fame. The song is available on iTunes and as a ring-tone. Who knows, maybe I’ll attempt my own cover 🙂

This is just example of how creativity and the Internet can skyrocket traffic to a website, product, or service. I hope to see more cool work from the Gregory brothers. Below is the iTunes version of the Bed Intruder song:

At its peak, the song rose to #3 on iTunes and now sits at #56 on iTunes. Have you seen the Bed Intruder video? What did you think? Do you have a favorite video that went viral? Comment below.
