iTunes Version 7

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 3:38 pm

I downloaded the latest version, 7.0, of Apple’s iTunes. The new version supports movies and iPod games. Even if I had a video capable iPod, I cannot imagine using it to watch TV shows, let alone full length movies. Since the display of my iPod is monochrome, I doubt the unit will play the games. This means that the only new feature that I can use is the browsing through music by album cover; cool and geeky but pointless. The new version of the software has a subtly redesigned look to the interface and the colour of the note on the icon has changed to blue; both of these changes are for the better.

The new version, however, shares a problem with all of the previous downloads. Quicktime is a required part of the download and when it installs itself it insists in appearing in the system tray, ignoring my selection made on the previous version. How hard is it for upgrade software to pay attention to user preferences of earlier versions?

  2. Oh and you forgot to mention the gapless playback – essential for all those prog-rock concept albums!

  3. I had not noticed the importance of the gapless playback feature. Thank you, for the heads-up. It certainly make my iPod’s rendition of “The Final Cut” a purer experience.
