iTunes 4(?) Screenshot

Posted:
in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
One of my fellow Mac-using coworkers sent me this screenshot tonight. He says it's iTunes 4.



The only two new things I noticed from it were Rendezvous sharing and it looks like there's AAC support.



What do you guys think? Fake or not?

    Why the resize corner when it looks like there is nothing else in that window?







    I coulda whipped up a similar fake.

    The lack of alignment between those two buttons disturbs me. The sunken widgets are peculiar though.

    In the screenshot, the file has a .aac extension. However, the system still believes an aac file is a mp4 file.



    i.e. aac files have a mp4 extension. (even if you change the extension - the file is still thought to be (by the finder) an MPEG4 movie.



    So unless he is also running a newer version of the system, i'd say its a fake.

    Here's one: Why show ".aac" in the title? iTunes 3 doesn't display ".mp3" for each song. This seems to be a very unsubtle way to make us believe that the file on the desktop is the song in iTunes.

    I showed my co-worker the link to this thread in iChat, and he had this to say:

    [quote]

    the installer said it updates some QuickTime and Finder components as well. also the build of OS X 10.2.4 changed to Build 6I34 after the install (which required a restart).



    as for the .aac title in iTunes, if you rip a file without any id3 tags, it makes the name like that even in iTunes 3 (i tried on my powerbook running version 3).



    the resize widget on the rendezvous window is a real one. it allows the window to be resized. i guess this was overlooked.

    Edit: Here's a screenshot of the odd Rendezvous window, and the password window:

    That is true, if an audio file lacks tags the "song name" is the file name.



    "the installer said it updates some QuickTime and Finder components as well. also the build of OS X 10.2.4 changed to Build 6I34 after the install (which required a restart)"



    It wouldn't need to update QuickTime and the Finder to get .aac to be recognised as iTunes music, not QuickTime movies (as a previous poster suggested). Caught!? iTunes just has to identify itself with the .aac extension.



    What we need, to figure out if it is real, is a listing of the files inside iTunes.app.



    Looks more like an iTunes 3.1 than an iTunes 4.

    That bothers me too.



    Btw. if the only new features are mp4 and Rendezvous support, I think that Apple would call it iTunes 3.1.

    They'll give it an interface overhaul and name it iTunes 3.5 internally, but market it as iTunes 4 (see Sherlock).

    Umm....it's extremely obvious that the resize button on that panel was photoshopped in. You can clearly see the outline.

    Airslurf Did you not watch the keynote where they actually demo`d Filesharing via itunes? They said it would be out in the next release of iTunes...

    giant Thats not an outline its a .jpg artifact. Its from compression. I doubt the faker would photoshop this anyways bu rather make it a .nib.

Don't remember the name of that plugin, but I highly doubt Apple will EVER allow iTunes filesharing via Rendevous. That would bring the full force of the filesharing Nazi's in a heartbeat.

    iCommune didn't support Rendezvous though, neither did it use its own window. It's an ordinary Plug-in that adds a panel in the iTunes main window.



    This isn't about iCommune, it's about the Rendezvous implementation Steve talked about in MWNY '02. But would they ever design such an awful window?

    Whether that sc is real or not, Apple needs to update the iTunes GUI so it's on par with iMovie 3
