    An excerpt from the looong Tim Cook Businessweek interview: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-12-06/tim-cooks-freshman-year-the-appl e-ceo-speaks

     

    "...the DNA of the company, the thing that makes our heart beat, is a maniacal focus on making the best products in the world. Not good products, or a lot of products, but the absolute best products in the world. In creating these great products we focus on enriching people’s lives—a higher cause for the product. These are the macro things that drive the company. They haven’t changed. They’re not changing. I will not witness or permit those changes because that’s what makes the company so special."

     

    Well, things seem to have changed already - and not for the better.

    Step back, Apple! Take another look. Don't just apply some metrics and surveys to determine if enough people found Cover Flow useful or functional. Its effect and appeal go well beyond what such a narrowly slanted survey question might disclose. Its eye-appeal and dynamics continued to be dramatic and fresh-looking even after the half-dozen years that it was part of iTunes. It displays the kind of dynamic movement and visually grabbing quality that so eloquently defined what was unique and so appealing about the look and feel of Apple software. In a word it was quintessential Apple. Please bring it back, at least as an option! It was truly beautiful to behold. I think you have completely underestimated the depth and breadth of its appeal to those of us who use and love iTunes and the Mac.

    I don't feel like my life's been enriched; in fact, it's been diminished via unprecedented aggravation.

    P

    LEASE guys !!

     

    DON'T forget to send feedback to Apple here :

     

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunesapp.html

     

    if enough of us do it we have a good chance of things being changed as it has happened in the past. also spread this across any iTunes related threads you might post in for or against this version

     

    thanks

    I just did it...! and eventhough I know it won't change Apple new politics with this software, I feel relieved  now .

    I'm just happy  it's easier to preview podcasts before downloading them now.

    As a DJ w/ 350 GB of music and 6 years of time invested sorting music in iTunes...I can't afford this kind of loss. Searching for a song takes way too long and limits the viewable information. How did you roll back to version 10? I'm glad this didn't hit during wedding season, I'd be screwed!

  • June1967 Level 1 (0 points)

    Amen! I DJ as well and operate off of playlists as that's how I set up my sets prior to my gig.

    I always have two playlists open while searching through other playlists to create new ones.

    apple ruined iTunes !

    I used time machine to revert back to iTunes 10.7

    You can use these steps but you lib will be mangled by 11 so you'll need to re-import/re-download from Match.

    I'm still looking for an alternative.  iTunes 11 is not a premier application and there is now plenty of opportunity for improvement, either by Apple or a competitor.

    Look at Songbird, Spotify, DoubleTwist, Floola or any of the others you can find…

    The trouble is that it is tough to compete with a free app provided by a massive company, you will loose the ability (or the simplicity) to sync to iOS or iPod's etc. Check out the 'revert to iTunes 10.x' threads if you still need the main iTunes features (The Store, iOS syncing & backup, Podcasts, streaming to other devices…)

     

    I'd love to hear you have found a great alternative, good luck.

    I use an external drive for my music and library files. I uninstalled v11, reinstalled the old iTunes 10.7 (found on apple support), grabbed my latest library (previous libraries), renamed to iTunes Library, overwrote the v11 compatable one (cannot open in 10.7 if already opened/updated to 11), opened 10.7. Good to go.

    Unmitigated disaster. No wonder Apple stock has lost 20% in the past three months. They are a bunch of bumbling idiots.

     

    How do I go back? Can I uninstall this cl&*%$#@!+k of a software update?

     

    This thing is useless - I don't WANT to spend hours learning how to use this. The old one was fine.

     

    I want to see how many mB each song is, that was easy with the old version. I hate Apple more than ever.

    FWIW, iLounge (http://www.ilounge.com/index.php) is conducting

    a survey where they have a list of 7 "new" features and one item

    "I do not like the new iTunes version at all".

     

    As of this posting, 300 people responded and only 34% like the new

    interface and the "I no not like...." category was 37%.  37% is by no

    means a majority, but is also not an insignifigant percentage and

    should be raising lots of questions with the Apple managers.

    Why  did  they drop coverflow!!

    Because the majority of users didn't like it.

  • Jonsmods Level 1 (0 points)

    To see the size, etc..you have to turn on the status bar.
