No reason to update just because Apple tells you to.

They sometimes totally break a feature.

I know how you feel. I'm not going to buy a new car until they bring back the crank on the front for starting the contraption. Damn that Boss Kettering and his newfangled electric starter!!

Anyone else but me enjoying this lovely new "feature?"

Yep same here and still getting weird iTunes store issues especially with mouse sliding back to previous page. Seems like they created more glitches rather than fixing the problem.

I think I know what you are talking about. I saw this same issue, it turned out the movies were being added with the "home video" attribute. Switch it to "Movie" and you will see it. To switch the attribute, I had to switch the itunes view to list to see the movie in iTunes. Once I saw the movie I opened its properties found the tab with "Home Video" in a drop down menu.

Their software development has become a big embarrassment.

As much as I don't particularly like ms nor google they are both currently running circles around them.

Even more embarrassing is the fact that while google and ms have to support a gazillion of configurations in tablets and pcs respectively, apple only has a few configurations of idevices and macs to support as they continue to aggressively force obsolete most of them.

Your collection must either be very small, or you must have an unusual way of filing your music mentally that makes coverflow an easy way to find it...
I don't know I can't really explain the way I browse through music on itunes. I'm sure there are more easier, faster, better and more organized ways of doing it. Since I use itunes only for synching with my iphone, I look through the covers to make sure the music I want on my phone is there in the library. And sometimes just flipping through the covers reminds me what I want to listen on the phone elsewhere.

Mixed Album Genre Bug?

I guess I'm the only one who uses Genre? . I reported this to Apple hoping it would be fixed, but it's still wonky.

For Albums with tracks of different Genres, when you select the Genre represented by Track 1 the Ablum is sorted correctly. When you select one of the other Genres from that Ablum iTunes sorts the Album out of order either at the beginning or end of that Genre's listing.

Interesting. I decided on a whim to try something. I upgraded to 10.7 iTunes from 10.6.3. and then upgraded 10.7 to 11.0.1. No asking for permission for incoming connections.

So, me thinks that you need 10.7 pre-installed and setup to avoid that bug if you opt to go to iTunes 11.0.1.

Or maybe they fixed the bug in .0.1.

That was weird.

I tried to sync my iPhone tonight with the new version of iTunes. The sync failed, and my phone only had 6 songs on it. (It had over 5000 before).

I tried to sync again, still 6 songs. I had to uncheck "Sync music", sync to remove everything, then re-check it and sync all 5000 of my songs back to the phone.

Anyone have this happen before? Wondering if it's a new bug. It's annoying as hell because syncing my entire song library takes a long time and it would suck for this to occur right before I have to go!

My list of grievances with iTunes 11 are too numerous to list here. Bottom line: it feels like a clunky HTML5 app now, I hate it, and I did something about it.

Here are SIMPLE instructions on how to downgrade to 10.7:

That's a bug that's been around for a while. From time to time I have to uncheck sync wirelessly and then plug my device in and recheck sync wirelessly for it to show up in iTunes. I think certain preferences get lost in iTunes a lot.

The column browser bug is super annoying. I'd be happy if they just fix that.

I definitely agree. For years I had been using Growl notifications for iTunes and Spotify. It would be so convenient to see Notification Center integration, especially since Growl is becoming even more obsolete (even with Hiss).

I can maybe explain that because I use coverflow every day. Coverflow is used in what is now Songs view as an effcient way to catalog my music with the right artwork. I can see at a glance that it is right for all selected songs and it is nicer to look at than just a screen of text. When it comes to navigation, I agree with you that it is easiest to type the artist name rather than swipe through album covers. For me that is not important because I don't use iTunes for playback (I beam it over to a SqueezeBox instead). I have many records and CDs and to me the artwork is part of the album.

If only more of the sheep realized the Apple agenda in the highlighted text...

Is "force obsolete" a chord on the Apple keyboard? Or is just something that Cupertino presses when they need higher hardware sales this quarter?
