8.1.1 Not Far Away?

Both TidBITS and iLounge surmise that reports of iTunes 8.1 video-Genius capabilities may have been premature on Apple’s part, since the description of this feature has been removed from the iTunes What’s New page, and quite obviously it is not working in iTunes 8.1. Should a v8.1.1 be expected soon?

iTunes 7.7 On the Horizon

The Unofficial Apple Weblog notes that the new iPhone 3G, available July 11, requires iTunes 7.7. Release date unknown, but obviously it will be before 7/11.

Interesting and Interestinger

This article at TUAW indicates an update for iTunes and possible details of iTunes-compatible files appearing on FOX DVDs. FOX has a site which seems to confirm it.

iTunes 7.3 Coming Friday?

This iPhone Tech Specs page at Apple indicates that iPhone requires iTunes 7.3 or better. So evidently not all the iPhone goodies are in iTunes 7.2.

…And Subscription Services?

If EMI drops DRM, what about those silly music download services that use the subscription model? Would any reasonable person subscribe to their music collection when untethered music downloads are available DRM-free?

Update to iTunes Coming Soon

Probably not completely unexpected, but here are some clues. This recent AppleCare article on Windows Vista and iTunes compatibility: “iTunes 7.0.2 may work with Windows Vista on many typical PCs. Apple recommends, however, that customers wait to upgrade Windows until after the next release of iTunes which will be available in the next few weeks.” This time frame jibes with the AppleTV specs page that had at one time listed iTunes 7.1 as a requirement (it now just lists “iTunes 7″), and AppleTV is due to start shipping this month.

iTunes 7.1 On The Horizon

The AppleTV specs page says iTunes 7.1 is required. Hmmm….got one of those yet? Since AppleTV won’t be shipping until February, I think we can expect an iTunes update between now and then, and probably closer to then.

MWSF ‘07 Predictions

Don’t have any. And if I did, who cares? And those that do, what do you care? And those that care, what do you expect? And If you expect something, why should you care what I think? And if you care what I think, do you think I care? And if you care what I think, what do you think I think? And if you think what I think, do you care if I think what you care about? If you think I care about what I think I care about then why do you think I should care about what you think?

Have fun tomorrow!
