I am 56 years old and maybee thats the problem i dont like iTunes 11.

 

iTunes 11 is a huge App that Apple have put in so many funny and automated things so it is so difficult to find out how its working, its very illogical.


Many years ago Apple was the leader and so proud of their easy user interface, and we, the user was happy because we could use Apples product without any manuals. Just plug in and go. Today its another story, ju can tell by reding in this forum. iTunes 11 still has a lot of bugs, like multiple import of files when syncing, sync of files i have told NOT to sync, sorting of my movies in a totally random way that Apple say is the right way to sort...............

 

And i just seen another strange thing here in the iTunes forum. I have to select either Aperture 3, Mac OSX (10.7.5) on None before i post this message in the iTunes forum ????????

 

This is the illogical behavior i talk about and it pop up everywhere in Apples products today. Maybee i am to old for computing and have to realize that my first Machintosh 128K i got soon 26 years ago is maybee the computer i should still use and just be quiet. No, I dont think so, I want to have the right to use a new computer i understand, is fast and without bugs.

 

 

Please Apple com back and give us someting understandable. Thronborg

iTunes, Mac OS X (10.6.8), iTines 11

    Pretty sure I haven't heard of any of these problems..

     

    "And i just seen another strange thing here in the iTunes forum. I have to select either Aperture 3, Mac OSX (10.7.5) on None before i post this message in the iTunes forum ????????"

     

    ???

    And looks like you didn't select any of these either.

    Actually, no it isn't. Yes, the software has evolved over the years but if you've been using it for any length of time you can see that iTunes 11 is not really radically different from the previous version. I suspect you want the iTunes 10.x view back. Well, you can have it. Simply pull down View > Show Sidebar and there is it. Just like it was.

    Again. Not really true. I really don't know what you mean by "multiple import of files when syncing" so if you can elaborate on that perhaps we can help you sort it out. It is also unclear what you mean when you say "sync of files I have told NOT to sync." What are you syncing to. I'm presuming an iOS device but we don't know becaue you don't tell us. So elaborate on what the trouble is and we'll try to help you. As to movie sorting, you also need to elaborate on that.

     

    The long and short of it is, post more details about the trouble you are having so we can help you. iTunes 11 is not a radical departure from what iTunes 10.x was. It is simply a gradual evolution.

    No.

    Those are the products you entered at some point.

    To edit this list...

    At top right of this page, click Your Stuff > Profile

    You will see My Products.

    You can Add/Edit/Delete.

    When ceating a new thread, you can use any of these or none of these (to help identify the product for those helping) . It's not a requirement to use one.

    Confusing iTunes forum.

     

    Ok i understand,  So "My Products" is the same as "Your Stuff" is the same as "Product"?

    Why do you understand it this way? That's not what they are.

    That's kinda like saying a book is the same as a piece of paper is the same as a pencil.

     

    Your Stuff is a list of things (your stuff) in this website.

    It is your posts, your user preferences, your products, your forums, etc.

    My Products is a list of Apple products you can add to your posts so others can better address your questions (because you are identifying what you have).

    You use Add a product to select which items you want to add to My products.

     

    I hope you understand why its confusing, if its the same thing just call it the same.

    I don't understand why it's confusing because they are not the same thing

    Of course, you work at Apple

    I don't work at Apple or for Apple.

     

     

    Do you think i spend a lot of time to mention this if i dont think this is confusing. Thats my oppinion and many more here are confused how to use Apple products, webpage and most of all iTunes.

    The answers provided in the Forums are from users as yourself - others trying to help others.

     

    The replies that come from Apple are few and far between. They are identified with the Avatar of an  next to the name.

     

    The good thing about iTunes is it does not require nuclear or medical knowledge to use and it certainly is not rocket science.

     

    I am mainly self taught about using computers and programs like most people out there and seem to get along with no real problems.

     

    As noted by Chris you can give Apple feed back via the links.
