Sounds like a straw man argument, has anyone said they should delay a release just for that? The point is, if they're manufacturing a product and info is leaking or likely to leak, they might as well announce earlier instead of waiting until release date.

don't know who is behind it but I thought the design for iTunes 11 is fantastic and I like the edge to edge design and how it matches the iOS iPad and iPhone stores

iTunes 1 and 2... especially 2.0.4.. WERE slick and fast. 3-4 was reasonable, too.

it has been delayed to end of november so i doubt its coming today or tomorrow the reason why it shows iTunes 11 is required on the box for the iPad mini is because they where originally planning to ship iTunes11 with the device.

It's been said a million times, but...

"before the end of November" ≠ delayed to the end of November.

First Option - Anytime between now and the end of November. Second option - end of November. Not the same. Tech blogs really need to stop reporting on what they thought they read on CNET and report the actual quote from Neumayr. Macrumors is one of the only ones I've seen get the statement right and yet all the everyone still assumes the worst.

I doubt it's going to take that long, though now they have some extra wiggle room. Apple probably realized it wasn't going to make it by yesterday and figured Twitter and tech blogs would take it as the final sign of the Mayan apocalypse if it didn't appear by the 31st and no formal mention was made by Apple.

Yes you are able to sync with iTunes 10 however there are a few bugs like the iPad mini and most likely iPad 4 icon missing on the device main page. iTunes 10.7.1 update to fix this maybe?

It would be nice if Apple could give attention to the annoyance of a) Mail continually asking for passwords. b) The 'New Mail' alert working only spasmodically and c) the bug in iPhoto and Aperture which generates multiple empty Events/Projects.

I understand that pieces of them were leaked, but I read these sites daily for the most part and I never recall seeing a 100% correct, pieced together iPad Mini. Same with iMac, I remember seeing rumors that it would be thin, but I never remember pictures. I'm talking about the level of leaks we saw for the iPhone 5. I mean, they had HD pictures and videos of the new design months and months before the actual announcement. I don't remember seeing any of that for the iPad Mini or iMac

Unlikely any of those will be fixed by an iTunes update.

Indeed, we did not see any accurate renderings of the iMac - just folks on the forum tweaking the ATD.

However, some of the iPad Mini mockups were very close - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1434509 - even if they missed some design details like the chamfered edges and plastic buttons as opposed to metal.

I doubt anything will be released Thanksgiving week, Cook gave employees the option to take the entire week off.

That leaves either the next two weeks or the last week in November.

We'll see what it's like!
That's why I suggested they split iTunes into two apps: one for music and purchasing media (not apps) another for i-device syncing/management (which would sync music and apps as well).

This will happen regardless of when it is released.

I'm going to miss Podcasts.

It appears Apple want us to download podcasts on devices. Not one of these devices is a computer, where those of us who sync content that does not originate from iTunes store, sync devices daily or weekly.

This is a flawed strategy and the means Apple provides - Podcasts app, is so useless, it's almost as if Apple wants to turn podcasts entirely over to third-party apps.

The Podcasts app has been fundamentally flawed from the very first. Didn't even sync back to a master library in iTunes. Caused multiple downloads which wiped out cellular customers and upped podcasters' bandwidth bills by a factor of 10. Buggy and almost crashed my iPhone, just trying to use it for a week.

I believe this app is beyond repair and can only be fixed by a complete re-write, or better still, going back to the original method - download and sync from computer, or download in iTunes on device, and sync with computer later.

I've never had any problems with iTunes, except playback when it's doing a major data/sync job. It's big and it's unfocussed, but it works well, especially considering the multitude of tasks with which it's charged.

I don't care how long iTunes gets delayed, as long as it does a good job when it's released. I just pray it still has podcasts. Improved podcasts, would be a bonus.

I don't know what you're talking about. Podcasts are right in the drop down menu visible during the iTunes 11 demo.
