Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 12:54 PM (in response to Stewart Allen1)Looks like apple did screw up.
I was giving them the benefit of the doubt, that there might more then one version... to download, and that they forgot to include the 10.4 option when choosing your download...
They updated the site to say:
* Mac OS X version 10.5 or later
So looks like a $4000 3yr Old computer to them is out of scope, but a $500 5yr old PC is with scope.
Way to back up your over priced products Apple.
I'll be sure to note this when requesting my computer replacement at work.4 x 2.5 PPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 4 GB DDR2
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 12:59 PM (in response to Stewart Allen1)Apple updated their site.
It now only reads
* Mac OS X version 10.5 or later
Chances are there will not be enough complaints from the 10.4 community to get apple to spend an extra day to two to program the update for us.
What ever, I'll likely be getting a New PC in a couple months anyway.
Sadly the argument for spending a little extra on a Mac over a PC is not only getting hard to do these days, it become downright impossible.4 x 2.5 PPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 4 GB DDR2

Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 3:18 PM (in response to Stewart Allen1)Wow. I just made an account just so I could get my voice heard about how ridiculous this is! How are they not supporting us, their own customers with products that aren't even that old. Why Apple, why?! All I can think now is that perhaps I need a new computer, and I can also think who I wouldn't buy from if they don't offer this basic support for customers who spend the extra money to buy Apple products.
Please release an iTunes we can install please...soon!Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 3:22 PM (in response to Stewart Allen1)It's ridiculous... I can't find OS 10.5 to buy from the Apple website, and on Amazon it's £139.99 (US$215.50), which is not really an incentive to upgrade.
As other people said, it's incredible that Apple supports Windows XP to run iTunes 10, but seems to have forgotten about a slightly older version of its own operating system which should still be capable of running it if XP can... Especially considering I have a MacBook Pro with an Intel processor.
I really hope they do something about this. They really let me down here.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 3:51 PM (in response to Stewart Allen1)I am disapointed with Apple right now. Like most people are saying, Tiger isn't even that old. I've been wanting to upgrade but I don't want Apple forcing me to... This also probably means I won't be able to get iOS 4.1 for my iPod Touch. Hopefully they can add a version for us Tiger usersMac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 6:19 PM (in response to rwcrell)I'm really floored by apple supporting windows better then their own OS. Will this really effect me using an iPod touch? Cause I already preordered a 4th gen one.Macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 8:41 PM (in response to Stewart Allen1)Kylla pitää ihmetellä Applen toimintaa. iTunesin laitteistovaatimuksissa esitetään sen sopivan OS X 10.4.11 systeemiin ja PPC G5 laitteistoon. If You can´t read translate with what ever...iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 3, 2010 5:31 AM (in response to Ozonekill)Hi Ozonekill,
You will want to upgrade to at least 10.5.8 for the iPod touch. Since you are on a MacBook Pro you may want to go ahead and upgrade to Snow Leopard.
See iPod Touch Technical Specifications.
iTunes 10 or later
Mac: Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later
ivanMac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 3, 2010 12:03 PM (in response to Stewart Allen1)This is garbage. Apple needs to stand behind all of their products, even if they deem them "obsolete". I'm currently looking for a new computer. If loyal Mac owners cannot get an update for computers that they only bought only 4 years ago, then maybe my next computer won't be a Mac!Mac OS X (10.4.11)
