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

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?

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.

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

Here's something very mildly interesting:



Identical art, slightly different colour schemes.

What an inexcusably broken heap of garbage.

: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.
