It all depends on the country you live in, I suppose. Where I live we get 2 years warranty and 5 years extended coverage on all parts within their expected lifespan. Which means that if a battery goes bad after 3 years you will not get a new battery for free because a battery is not supposed to last longer than that, but if something breaks (through no fault of yours) before it normally can be expected to break, the shop where you bought it (not necessarily the producer)...
I have never understood how they can argue that innovation is being harmed by not being allowed to copy others. If anything it should drive innovation because when you are not allowed to copy from somebody else, you have to make your own solution, and thereby you are forced to innovate (or at least develop your own solutions, which hopefuly will lead to new and useful inventions). Why are they allowed to get away with that argument without being challenged by the...
No. The album art field in the Get info window is not what I am talking about.   I think that CDs at the moment is cheaper than downloading because that is what I see when I go to buy music. Some times the files are cheaper, but most of the time CDs are cheaper. Probably because the big music publishers are selling their back catalogue for next to nothing.  Whether all these files will be available at one time, I don't know. They might be, but they are not at the...
And don't forget that it is in Apple's interest to have people buying music through iTunes. There is still a good argument for buying CDs though. At the moment it is much cheaper to buy CDs than files on the internet. I paid $120 for the 144 CD Artur Rubinstein collection. It would be much more expensive to buy it as downloads (if it had been available, which it isn't).   As to coverflow vs. the artwork field in the main window there is a difference. Coverflow was...
Yes, I know. And I'm all for simplicity. There are always workarounds - I can live with that. The cmd-c and cmd-v info solved my main problem.  
Yes, of course I realize that I'm in a small minority, but that doesn't mean that it's not a problem for me. The previous functionality worked very well, and I don't see how removing it solves any problem? In iTunes10 you could remove the field that showed the album art by clicking a button - why not leave it in?   But am I so special? The trend is of course to play music from your computer. On a Mac that means almost 100% iTunes. So people are ripping their...
  That would work I guess. But why make it so difficult when they already had a very easy and functional way to do it? This would become extremely tiresome if you had to do it for let's say 200 works/albums, like I sometimes have to. How much extra time would this incur for me after i ripped the 144-CD collection of Arthur Rubinsteins complete RCA-recordings (which I did a couple of months back)? Those 144 CDs probably contains more than 500 works that all should have...
Yes, I know. But the old way was much more convenient - just paste the album art on the "Album art field" in the main Window. Which is now gone. And some times iTunes would find the correct album art for one work on a CD, but not for the other. Then you could just copy the album art from the same field, and paste in that field for the other works. This doesn't work any more. I have not found where I can copy albumart from an album in iTunes. Does anybody...
You are right - I was not being precise. My only excuse is that English is not my first language. It is possible to paste album art (I'm not too sure about copying though...). But it is much more inconvenient and takes much more time. They took something that was very easy and fast in iTunes 10 and made it much more difficult and inconvenient in iTunes 11.  I don't quite understand why. If they used the space they saved for something useful, I could understand it, but...
  1: Because I rip a lot of CDs, and iTunes usually can't find the album art. Just last week I ripped 75 CDs and iTunes didn't find any of the album art. Each CD contains many works - those CDs probably contained at least 200 works.   2: No it isn't. Yes, it is possible to paste album art by selecting the work, open the Info-window and paste it there. This, however means 3 operations for what earlier took only 1. And some times iTunes finds the album art for one work, but...
