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?
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.
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?
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.
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.
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!
