Haha well yea, theres your problem. 512 is basically useless. How old is your comp? 512 is really low.

I did post about it earlier haha. It's an old HP Pavilion that I bought used for really cheap. Just installed more RAM and it's been trusty ever since. But if people have high RAM and their iTunes is STILL slow...then I have no clue.

Ahh, only reason I asked is because my HP is almost 5 years old and came with 3. More than likely, people who are having issue have a bunch off other shit slowing down their comp.

I wish I had a year on it. But it has to be way more than 5 years hahaha. I think I saw some programs from 2005.

just updated
there's a ton of songs that were added to my library and i have no idea where they came from...

and a lot of songs have duplicates now

edit: seems to have put songs into my library that i purchased years ago from itunes, but there were still a lot of songs where i have no idea where they came from, like Taylor Swift for example lol

So far so good. It runs great on windows and I like the new design but had to do some minor adjustments to get the look and feel right.

And treat it like they did Lala? I'd probably cry if that happened. Rdio is too good for Apple.

They used LaLa tech in iTunes Match.

Exactly. The gutted the service for the tech destroying the cool parts (like online only songs for 10 cents) and used it in some marginally useful feature. (My music library is fairly cleanly organized. Its not that hard to upload the whole thing to Amazon or Skydrive or Google)

If Apple wanted an on demand subscription service I think they could have one. Its just not a priority for them because it won't make as much money and if they were to acquire something like Rdio I fear it probably just become more expensive.

Anyone else can't update their ipod?

Jeff_Ryan 11/29/12 07:34 PM

Can you adjust the size of the album art in the cover grid view? You could on previous versions but I cannot figure it out on this one

This is what I want to know. I used to be able to copy and paste artwork when I needed to and now I can't. That's my only complaint though, everything else is awesome.

Such a great point. I told my GF today when she asked what I was doing today, "uh, I'm talking with other people about iTunes 11." Hahaha, she gave me a look like, "what in the hell??"

Yes, yes, this is what I am doing.

I hear you. I bug the hell out of my girlfriend with ideas about software design. Also, am I the only one that loves the mini player, but wishes it could be inserted into Notification Center? Seems like the perfect place/size/features for it.

on which tab? artist? album? actually it might be the same for all tabs. go to the menu in the top left corner, drop down to "show menu bar" then go to "view" and "view options"

I want to get them to show on the Artists tab. I tried what you said, and it only works for playlists. Lame.

White 11/30/12 01:40 PM

Here's something very mildly interesting:



Identical art, slightly different colour schemes.

What an inexcusably broken heap of garbage.

Drew Beringer 11/30/12 01:47 PM

:shrug: don't have that problem

Maybe I don't do as much music exploration as you do (well I'm sure I don't since my paying job is entirely non music related) but for me I can't fathom having to rely on a cellular connection in order to stream a song. Even with LTE now on the iP5 one day I'll be sitting at work and have full bars and the next I'll have no signal.

I think if we got to a point where our cellular networks were as strong as say, Japan's, I could see only using Rdio or Spotify for myself. As of now though the idea of relying on ATT in the subway sounds terrible.

Sounds like you need to get Verizon. Way better cellular coverage.

Playback Syncing better work with podcasts!

whiterussian 12/01/12 08:22 AM

Has anyone found a way to put it like this again?
Not mine btw.

I don't know about the artists and albums column at the start there, but to bring the sidebar back is Ctrl+S. Oh, and the layout is under the 'Songs' option

Thanks, but the problem is that I can only have the columns ABOVE the songs, which in my case is very annoying. Apparently they left the "above" option but took out the "to the left" one.

Hopefully they put it back in but apple has a history of leaving people behind, so.

No US cellular carrier is immune from shittiness.

I agree!

Really digging this update. As a Windows 7 user, I'm finding it waaaaaay peppier than 10.7. No more freezing/lagging while I scroll. It's also a lot nicer to look at IMO. Only thing I miss is having the album artwork in the bottom left hand corner when in the Songs view.

CoopDawg 12/01/12 02:55 PM

I just downloaded it today and songs that I had downloaded when I was like 13 and then deleted had "magically" gotten back into my library. Other than that, I am diggin it!

yayitsjoe 12/01/12 07:48 PM

now I wish I actually had album artwork for all of my songs. I barely have any.

I switched to T-Mobile because I can get unlimited talk/text/web for $50 a month on a smartphone. Verizon doesn't have anything matching that - the cheapest plan for a prepaid smartphone is $80 a month. Too much for me :-(

thank you SO MUCH!!!

arson 12/04/12 04:29 PM

I really can't stand this new design. I need my column browsers to the left back and to not see these little boxes by each artist in the one column that is left. It's way too clunky - anyone know how to change that?
