My money is on that there are no bugs with the software itself, but rather the big red "GO" button that is used to make the update go live. Poor folks at Apple working all month to fix that bloody button

This has been happening to me for the last two months too. So it's one of the main reasons I'm really eager for the update.

Can't remember iTunes ever freezing on me, or crashing for that matter. I'll happily stay with the current version if the new one isn't to my taste.

Also, I hope none of y'all play video games. Games get delayed ALL the time. Some get cancelled. Some just mysteriously disappear. Y'all would die.
Comparing a video game that a few thousand, if that, may purchase, to iTunes, a piece of software that MILLIONS around the world depend and shop on EVERY MINUTE OF A DAY is a super weak comparison. iTunes being delayed is a huge deal. Hundreds of thousands around the world are annoyed. No doubt.

Yeah. Too bad iTunes 10 just suddenly stopped working 28 days ago.

I can tell you're not a gamer as you have the idea that games only sell in the thousands.

Has iTunes Match been worth it for you? I've been debating between that and Spotify.

The only thing holding me back is Spotify's price. $10 a month is a lot but unlimited music without ads on my iMac and iPhone is tempting. Their catalog is pretty amazing.

I have a ton of music 172 GB (mostly lossless and a lot of live stuff) so I'm not sure if Match is what I'm after. Can you stream your library on your iPhone without having to download the files locally?

well, i wanna be honest: most albums, i just download as torrents and upload them in itunes and update the quality on itunes plus for free, as i'm a itunes match costumer..when i adore and love some specific records, i download them in itunes or buy a physical copy...and yes, i can stream everything. have a 16gb iphone, 7gb of apps the rest is photos and videos..no music because i'm streaming all without downloading!

Torrent away, but if you really like them or appreciate what a band is doing, go see them live and buy some merch. That's where artists make their money.

iTunes Match's price is what is tempting to me. When I'm out and about sometimes a song isn't on my iPhone I want to listen to that's at home, this would solve that problem for me quite well.

yes, you can stream it all over itunes match and i'm not using lte because it's not available at my carrier in my country but 3g is like pretty insane fast with streaming. i just wait for just like 2-3 seconds till the song starts playing!

Nice, LTE is around here. It's spotty but pretty decent if you're driving around. I've been getting around 30 Mbps down/15 Mbps up.

A lot of people like to claim these delays would have never happened under Steve.
These people seem to have a very lousy memory.
Do you forget the first version of OS X, and OS X Leopard.
Releasing unfinished software is never a sensible idea; and I'd think this is empathised even more so by the maps debacle.
Sometimes deadlines aren't met, and as frustrating as that is it doesn't mean you should neglect the experience of the product.
Customers were frustrated with the delay of Leopard but I remember the level of excitement when it was released due to the pleasurable experience.
I'd rather wait and be blown away than impatient and experience a buggy piece of crap. As the saying goes "you can't rush art"
Lets hope our patience pays off tomorrow.
Goodnight everyone.

Well in Brandons defense, announcing in April that what you have planned for in June isn't going to happen is not quite the same thing as waiting until the day of the release to state its not going to happen.

I too would rather it work when they release it instead of them releasing it THEN waiting more months waiting for a patch to fix some BS issue.

Am I crazy? I think the iPhone/iPad/iPod syncing tool should be integrated in MacOS directly.

iTunes should only be a media player/organizer/store, that’s it.

I agree and I also would like to see iTunes split up into separate Music, Movies, Books and Podcast apps similar to on the iPhone.

In Apple's defense, it's quite possible that they were working on a fix to a bug that cropped up late in development, and they believed that the fix would pan out, only to have it fail and come to the conclusion that some whole module needed to be rewritten. In short, as of the 28th or 29th, they may have believed that they could still make the 31st deadline, only to have their efforts fail. So, you announce a delay when you are pretty certain that you're not going to meet it, not if you think that you might miss it. That's just good PR. And we just don't know when they became certain that it the problem that they were dealing with was too big to finish in time.

Uh, no. Do you run iPhoto to sync the photos from your iPhoto library? Nope. You'd have one app that would handle syncing, but it would have access to the libraries from iPhoto, iTunes, iBooks, iFilms, etc. To me, this is a sensible move, though I'd keep audiobooks, podcasts and music all in iTunes. Thus you'd have an app for audio (iTunes), an app for photos (iPhoto), an app for movies and TV shows (iFilms, or whatever you want to call it), and an app for reading material (iBooks, or, perhaps, iBookShelf, which could include emagazines, too).
