Your boss is probably an engineer. They give the design people lots of deference because they don't understand them or what they do, but ever since Apple they've been told that they're important.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

iTunes is in drastic need of a complete overhaul, so I'm glad that they're taking the time to get it right. There's far too much that could go wrong.

then they shouldn't have given such a close release date

It might not take so long if they sent out a beta to developers to check for bugs.

Just sayin.

The graphics on Apple's website still say "Coming in October"

That will change shortly I guess.

To be honest, whilst I was looking forward to the new iTunes, I'm prepared to wait until its done - I'd rather it work than them rushing it out - like they did with iOS Maps.

Just make the dang thing faster, no new features. The iTunes store is slow, too. Just focus on speed!

This never would of happened under Steve Jobs
instead of firing the important people in the company, why not just get rid of Tim Cook, he's boring during the keynotes and clearly doesn't have any passion for it

Beat me to it. I came here to say

This will be a day long remembered. Episode VII has a release date, and Apple is starting to get back to "ship when ready" basics.

Anyone feel you just can't trust the release dates Apple give now? iTunes 11, the infamous white iPhone 4, the Mountain Lion up-to-date programme, etc

If I remember correctly, it was far overpriced to comparable sound systems.

Yeah! Steve would never delay a release.

He would never delay iOS push notifications for over a year after he announced it.

He wouldn't announce a white iPhone, delay it for a month, delay it again, then finally release it after almost a year.

And he certainly wouldn't delay a major OS release (Leopard) for 4 months.

iTunes has never been slick and fast, and it never will. Apple does not know how to make software.
