The story implies the new iBooks is dependant on iOS 4.

Yeah I have no idea? It still downloads as an iPad app, and doesn't show up in the 'App' section when trying to sync an iPhone - even with OS4. Be nice to know when it finally gets updated with the 'iBooks for iPhone' version.

iOS already runs on all iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches. However, come June 21st only the latter two will get an update to iOS v4.0. The iPad will have to wait until Fall.

iOS on the iPad is dramatically different in the UI. Hopefully they get them all on the same tie table but I doubt it since they are so different.

PS: The next AppleTV should also be iOS based.

Other than a feature checkbox, what do you think 64bit is going to gain you for iTunes?

Complete Cocoa rewrite for starters.

I agree that iTunes needs love on Windows, but that has no baring on Apple's plans to eliminate Carbon and push Cocoa into the future.

BTW, with my SSD iTunes loads in 1 second. I love it!

Two realities:

Create two Cocoa versions and include the 'yellowbox' runtime of today on Windows leaving one to have:

32 bit Cocoa for legacy Win [XP/Vista/Win7] and Apple Power PC/Intel non-64 bit OS X 10.5/10.6
64 bit Cocoa for OS X 10.6 and newer

They could build 64 bit Windows 7 but I doubt they care about it, until the install base demands it.

I just downloaded the new Itunes 9.2 and now I have access to a shared library of a Billy Peters. I have never know anyone by this name and my previous version of itunes 9.01 (I believe) did not have this individual as a shared library.

Anyone having a problem with slower backups with 9.2? My iPhone 3g is taking hours to get through the backup process when syncing now.

iBooks for the iPhone and touch will not show up for download since you need iOS 4 in order for iBooks to run.

When iOS4 is released, iBooks will be released at the same time.

iOS4 is just around the corner!

That's very curious! But what's his musical taste like??

Also does anyone know how you can do long distance sort of home sharing between family members across the net? Would be great to do without having to install another application.

No problems here. All smooth. iPhoneOS... er, I mean, iOS 3.1.3 and iTunes 9.2(61) on 10.6.4. Damn this is geeky, once you start focusing so much on the "third decimal" of things.

I believe the Windows version is Carbon with an "emulation" layer to make it run in Windows. So, I think it has a huge baring on Apple's plans with iTunes.

I think you missed his point. Like 64-bit, an app being in Carbon or Cocoa is invisible to the user. So the question remains, what do you think 64-bit, or even a Cocoa rewrite is going to get you with respect to material use of the software?

I use Dropbox to share files between my home computer and work computer. It's free up to (I think) 2 GB. I have not had any problems with it.

There's also SugarSync, which I used for a while but stopped using because of technical problems with the application.

I've noticed some new features when using itunes.

There's a crossfading transition on album art in the viewer when clicking on different albums.
If you click on a song in a different album than the song currently playing the album art viewer automatically switches to selected album so you can see that album art. previously you had to click on the top bar to choose between "Now Playing" and "Currently Selected". Once the song switches it automatically goes back to "now playing"
For some reason when i was syncing my iPhone, about 400 songs were re-sunk to it suggesting that the update changed them in some way. don't know how though.

Why does iTunes full screen Cover Flow still NOT have the flip feature, a la iPod, iPad & iPhone. It's such an obvious and worthwhile functionality. At the moment I don't bother with full screen cover flow but this addition would make it worthwhile!

iTunes 9.2 issue:

No longer able to hear any of my songs or videos through iTunes. I checked to make sure it wasn't my computer that was having the issue by pressing Command-R when I selected one of the songs in a playlist (locates the file through the Finder), then pressed the spacebar to listen to the song file... it still worked. When trying to play through iTunes, that's the problem. Something in the update messed it up bad. I also went directly to Apple's downloads, re-downloaded the 9.2 update and re-installed. Made no difference. I'm a little baffled by this one. Any suggestions? All of my audio files are located on an external drive... might that be the issue? Could be that they need to be relocated to my HD to play now (good grief, I hope not)?

Bugs and glitches can do anything but I don't see how your media on an external drive could be a likey issue.

Step One

ACTION: Create new user, log in, then start iTunes while holding down the Shift key. Choose your iTunes library on the external drive and see if they play.

RESULT: This will narrow it down essentially to an issue with the app or with your user settings for iTunes.

Good suggestion Solipsism, thanks! I created the secondary account and the alternate version of iTunes worked... So, for my original account might it mean that my preferences are corrupt or is it something else? I returned to my original iTunes and audio still doesn't work... any issues you know of as far as 'too many song files' or anything like that? This is quite vexing. I'm far too reliant on iTunes.

Yeah, a preferences file sounds hosed. I use AppTrap for quickly finding and removing associated from an app, but manual works well, too.

So, I found the pref file:

users/(my home account)/Library/Preferences

...then tossed it. iTunes automatically rebuilt the prefs and voila... all was fixed! Thanks for the help, Solip. I don't tend to "get under the hood" of OSX anymore like I used to.
