    I really hope that Steve didn't just call this the "even better than everything else view."

    I'm the last person who would ever want to say this - but this is straight out of WMP...I remember reading about it on Thurrott's site and laughing at the idea, calling it the dumbest thing ever. If he had pointed out that you were being given even more options than WMP gives you (which is still silly, since iT should be the leader, not the follower), it wouldn't have been so bad.

    I'm ashamed. I can already see the Cupertino Copier jokes coming...:mad:

    Yeah...I never bothered to download coverflow in all this time, but I was aware of it. I guess I'll give the feature a try in iTunes 7.

    I'm glad I didnt download coverflow(was tempted) but now that steve ripped off that guy its all good.

    iTunes 7 is the best news I heard in that "showtime" crap




    Bless

    Saw this over at arstechnica.

    Catfish is the author of cover flow.

    Well then, I guess I was wrong. Maybe WMP is the ripoff of CoverFlow (which it appears Apple bought from this Catfish Hunter namesake)...I feel much better now.:D

    But, I still think it's stupid (watch me d/l iT7 tonight and make it my primary view)

    Ha! I wasn't crazy. Just a little quick. It is the Album View that is too close to WMP for me to be comfortable. That being said, I still wouldn't be surprised if WMP ripped it off of something else. Anyway, here is a screenshot

    Why do I think that Album art view is the sickest thing ever?

    I love it

    But, I collect album art for every CD in my library.

    I don't care about cover flow, or WMP.
