I've updated to iTunes 7.2. The impression I get is the site is too overwhelmed for searches to work properly. If I can't search, I can't buy.
You're probably right. My co-worker said he didn't know what the fuss was about, but promptly began upgrading his music on his laptop, the moment his iTunes updated. I've upgraded my Corrine Bailey Rae for $2.40, and one track of Coldplay. I found myself forgetting that some of the albums I most wanted to upgrade weren't available. I'm going to be comparing the sound fidelity this evening to hear what I was missing... or if my hearing is unfortunately lacking.
Here is a DIRECT LINK to the iTunes Plus area.https://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/...iTunesPlusPage
EDIT: How odd, that link ONLY works inside of iTunes. No remote linking... at least not yet. How queer.
I found this amusing though... someone at Apple was in a rush and put a TYPO in the dialog box. I mean, come on... is that really a permanant part of the software now until the next update? Yikes. "or music video WHENVEVER". (Snicker)
Ok, ok... I find this interesting too... Steve's comments on All Things Digital. My new favorite quote.
