No Shopping Cart but HIDDEN Wish List instead (really dumb)

Nothing like making it more difficult to purchase songs you are almost ready to purchase.
The 'Shopping Cart' was MUCH more user friendly than the new Wish List which you first have to go to the iTunes Store and then scroll down to the bottom of the page where it is virtually hidden so as to access songs you have indicated you will want to purchase in the near future.

Yeah Apple... way to go.

Make it harder to find and purchase songs with your new improved upgrade.

There wasn't even a note in the online iTunes Help indicating as to where the Shopping Cart items had gone.

Yeah Apple... quite the improvement.

    No suggested music based on music already added in the Wish List either.

    It's also hidden at the top - you don't have to scroll down to the bottom

    If you are logged in to your account then there is a disclosure triangle (which only appears when you hover to the right of your login id) that lists:
    Account
    Redeem
    Wish List
    Sign Out

    The easiest way to get to it (and, I assume, the way Apple intended for it to work) is on the home page:
    !http://idisk.me.com/colinrobinson-Public/Complete my Album.tiff"!

    However, it appears from threads on this board, that some people do not get that view when they log in.

    Not only was this a terrible idea, but I get an error or +connection time out+ 3 out of 4 times I try to access my wish list to purchase music. I cannot believe that the record companies and artists would stand for this. This seems like a really poor marketing idea to get people to buy songs at the spur of the moment rather than let people EASILY assemble items to ponder for the future. Why Apple feels these "tweaks" are necessary is really beyond me.

    You're right. It does not consistently appear.

    I'm not a fan of this Wish List business either. I seem to have to refresh my wish list (by returning to the home page and selecting wish list again) in order to remove more than one song from it.

    I also have to leave the wishlist screen and come back if I want to play more than one preview or delete more than one song off my wishlist. So annoying! I've written a scathing review to Apple Feedback - hopefully they can bring the shopping cart back or ease the functionality of this new iTunes.

    I agree with all of you...i wouldn't wish the "wish list" on anyone. It's totally useless and beyond frustrating. Apple, Bring Back My Shopping Cart!!!

    I can not stand the wish list...PLEASE bring back shopping cart. If I wanted a million little charges on my credit card.....very unhappy!

    I'm just curious. You're not the first person whose complained about having numerous small charges on their card. I'm not trying to be argumentative, really. I'm curious why that's a problem. Does it some how change how much you get charged by your credit card company?
