    The Amazon cloud player works when you have wifi or 3G, it wasn't as good as the old iTunes but it is better than the new one. Amazon is a lot better about handling your existing music too. I hope someone comes up with a good palyer for the MAC, it doesn't look like apple can. If I new how to get the previous version back I would.

    I wish people would realise that Steve Jobs has nothing to do with any of this, it makes your posts look misinformed to blame the dead guy.

     

    Apple made a lot of mistakes under Steve's control too…

    Doesn't anyone remember the White iPhone (delayed for how many months?).

    Antennagate - where Steve wouldn't admit if the design caused the issue, but gave away free rubber bumpers.

    Leopard - 4 month delay because developers were taken to work on iOS.

    The original iPhone - no third party apps, no copy & paste…

    Apple HiFi -

    Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO…

    "Apple is reinventing the home stereo with the new iPod Hi-Fi, the first iPod accessory that adds true high-fidelity sound quality to the iPod,”

    From http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2006/02/28Apple-Announces-iPod-Hi-Fi.html

    Steve also claimed onstage to have replaced his stereos around the home with those white boxes.

    iTools, .Mac, MobileMe all had significant outages that caused Apple to give free time on the service. 

    Go further back & at one point Apple were releasing Macs with slower clock speeds than the last generation.

     

    Seriously learn a little history before you condemn the current administration (which is literally raking in the cash more than ever before). Apple are still trying new things as they always have, they have always 'murdered their darlings', much to the frustration of users.

     

    Please think before you hit 'upgrade' and make a backup otherwise you have no one else to blame but yourself. I think exercising caution with things that are important to you is a sound principle that some people here haven't followed.

    I wish I had never clicked upgrade to iTunes 11. Now I tried to downgrade but I wound up with nothing but problems. Can't even join my Ipod to my WiFi anymore.

    Being a member of the Mac community used to be great. The emphasis is on used to. Now I feel like an idiot, and the sad thing is, I am.

    Don't bother to reply.

    Thank you.

    Moreover, I am at a complete loss how this board picked this nickname for me. It's a nick I'm using for completely different sites. Will Apple stop nosing into my private affairs?

  • Doccy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Nor have I asked to receive Emails from Apple support just becauser I posted on this forum. Get off my back, will ya?

    Take some control of your account…

    I'd also like to tweak my username but I think it is set in stone now, I'm not sure when it became fixed, but I think it came from my emails 'sent from' setting for the mac.com account.

  • Doccy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thank you for your kind advice.

    My username is not Doccy. I have used this Doccy nick in a specific other community and do not wish to use it here nor anywhere else. I am flabbergasted at the fact that it automatically shows up here. I cannot figure out how this website here has figured out to head my post with this nick. What else will I have to expect? I am shocked that merely posting on an Apple site is the end of my privacy.

    Now problems continue. After downgrading from the idotic iTunes 11, I had to restore my iPod. Next it says that about half of my apps cannot be restored, and I have to "authorize my computer". When trying to authorize my computer, I'm told "We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An unknown error occurred (-42408). There was an error in the iTunes Store. Please try again later."

     

    Please, what kind of a ride is Apple taking me here on?

  • Marx Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    I too am rather disappointed by the lastest iTunes 11 version.

     

    - It crashes frequently using library search or just using the navigation (on 4core MBP and SSD)

    - Scalable album art missing

    - No coverflow

    - play button in Artists view frequently doesn't work

    - Album view is nice but the song information is sometimes rather unreadable with certain color albums

    - It would be nice to have the options button (round one with open arrow) as a roll over in stead of an extra click

    - Can't seem to open a second window anymore. Very annoying.

    - New 'Gallery' function is a dud because only very mainstream artists (beyonce and such) have gallery images avaialble

    - Radio page is rather underwhelming

     

    Somehow I can't see a CEO worth his stuff OK-ing this mediocre work.

  • Doccy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Did I say half of my apps? Actually, it's nearly all of them. iPod no longer usable. 34 apps. Unable to restore. Thank you Apple. Is there a way I can turn your CEO's face into a Bill Gates mask?

    The error -42408 has been encountered in other threads…

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1499345 I imagine it is in this forum too.

     

    It suggests you didn't uninstall or overwrite everything when restoring, iTunes 11 updates other files, not just the app.

     

    I do think Apple could make it easier to downgrade, but backwards isn't in thier vocabulary, hence the need for a backup.

    BIG SH*T EVER

    Hi MyMac8MyPC

     

    i never used Cover Flow as such, looked at what it could do, it was fun for 5 minutes, fine, move along... BUTsince it was user selectable then why drop it indeed ? maybe not a majority used it but it becomes clear to me MANY did & miss it

     

    in a day & age when even car manufacturers have realised they MUST provide their customer base with ways to ''personnalize'' their mass produced vehicles, it just strikes me as a bad marketing strategy

     

    i guess the future will tell..
