Apple: Flawed iTunes Stands Out Among Apple's Products…

Waderoush writes "On top of all the other features that it has crammed into iTunes, Apple this week added Ping, a Facebook-like social network for music discovery. It's all part of the company's plan to dominate the world of consumer media, but Xconomy argues that this time, Apple may have gone a bridge too far. iTunes, nearing its tenth birthday, started out merely as a program for ripping CDs, and has grown increasingly creaky and impenetrable as Apple has added more and more cruft, the article argues. The company won't have a stable base for its new media empire until it rebuilds iTunes from scratch — perhaps along the lines suggested by its other new product this week, the revamped Apple TV."

It does okay for me. But then I don't use it much, only occasionally downloading music.

Thanks for the info! I was wondering why I was prompted to update the software. Think I'll wait awhile to go to the next version.
