trouble connecting i tunes to Sonos Lion OS - Sonos Forums
"I decided Sonos was doing something that my mac did not like when setting permissions to load the library. This time, once again, manually created a 'Music' share through
System Preferences->Sharing->File Sharing
Then, verified its existence from another computer on my network using:
Finder->Go->Connect to Server...->smb://HomeServer

Finally, I circumvented Sonos by loading the library through my Sonos iPhone App. The "Music" share was available and loaded and the played my tracks.

I re-indexed several times, after downloading more music to iTunes, and it worked perfectly.

So, in conclusion, it appears that Sonos, when loading the iTunes library, is kicking-out the Music share when it tries to set the permissions for the share. By manually setting up the share and then loading the library via the controller or iPhone app, it does not try to change the permissions, and the share is preserved."

trouble connecting i tunes to Sonos Lion OS - Page 2 - Sonos Forums
"If you get the following error "The computer 'server' refused to let Sonos connect to it" here is the solution.

1.) Make sure all your File Sharing settings are turned on and that you have both AFP and SMB options checked.
2.) Open your Server Admin application (not Server.exe)
3.) Connect / log into you server
4.) Click on the Access tab and under the Services section, highlight SMB
5.) Click the Add (+) button, scroll down the list of user names and then drag Sonos over to the right side where all your other user names are. Save the settings and quit the Server Admin application.
6.) Open Sonos desktop and see if you Library / songs will now connect/play.
7.) If not, go to Manage | Music Library Settings and remove the old music folder. Re-start the Sonos software and then go back to Manage | Music Library Settings and add the iTunes Music folder as you normally would."

Apple - Privacy - Government Information Requests
"On devices running iOS 8, your personal data such as photos, messages (including attachments), email, contacts, call history, iTunes content, notes, and reminders is placed under the protection of your passcode. Unlike our competitors, Apple cannot bypass your passcode and therefore cannot access this data. So it's not technically feasible for us to respond to government warrants for the extraction of this data from devices in their possession running iOS 8."

For BERG, My London Launchpad | MORNING, COMPUTER
"It’s not like Schulze and Webb are dead, and neither is Timo, and all the other great minds in BERG’s orbit. But it feels like a significant moment: as significant, I think, as their turn into internet-of-things products and services, which had its own sadness for a lot of people. I imagine there’s a chill wind in Shoreditch today. I hope they will all go off in search of the next new thing, as they used to, and fly more innovations. I get to be sad, though, because I’m always sad when a launchpad gets decommissioned. I wish them all the very best."
