Not sure what you mean by updating the marker. Is that like, you start a movie on your computer, pause it, then want to continue from where you left off on your iPhone? Not sure if it does that, but don't think so.

Anywho, give it a look, you might like it.
I can get that with Plex already, so yeah, not too impressed.

I'm talking play counts here and yes, if possible the marker for the play position, but that'd be bonus only.

Play counts are crucial.
Absolute deal breaker for me here.

Looks like ML's a no-go on my iMac, then. I've invested upwards of $700.00 in Cakewalk SONAR alone, not including softsynth plugins; I'm not about to risk losing the ability to use it on my main music workstation should I have an OS failure.

Does upgrading to Lion have the same limitation? If iTunes progresses to the point where Lion is a minimum requirement, I guess I'll move my Library over to my MBP; I don't have Bootcamp on it, and I should be able to upgrade that without a hitch.

Whaddaya know? Looks like I get to have both for just a little longer; 11 has appeared in my Software Update, so SL users haven't been left behind just yet. Time will tell, though... on verra bien...

People will remember Snow Leopard and Windows 7 as the last real computer operating systems before microsoft and apple decided to trash their products to cater to the gadget crowd.
I don't know so much that Lion/ML are "iOS gimmicks", but yes, I am rather comfortable with SL as it is.

Actually iTunes, at least before v11, iTunes uses WebKit to display the iTunes Store, or at least I read that many times.

From my reading which may be totally wrong, iTunes 10.x and before, was a mishmash of a dedicated database app and web browser. From my understanding is that iTunes uses a MySQLlite database for organizing local files and WebKit for the online store.

If you know otherwise, I'll recant.

If Lion/ML never came out, there's no way I'd have bought a Mac, I can't fathom the idea of using Snow Leopard on a daily basis.
I guess if you use computers to play on facebook or twitter, then lion, ml or windows 8 would be right up your alley.
If you actually want to do some work, then snow leopard or windows 7 is still your best bet.
