Advance Tab is GONE under Preferences. To set your Rip settings is now located under General and Import Settings. Haven't found the other two missing tabs yet.
Sync Tab is GONE and is now under Devices combining all sharing devices under one tab...Remote functions is now located under this tab as well.
iPhone is seen as new hardware when plugged in...syncing now...still syncing (7 min now)...backup complete took 12 minutes, now its reloading my library on to my iPhone...probably because of the Genius. Oh and by the way, I did sync prior to the install of 8.0.
No updates for my apps so can't comment there.
Ok...sync completed...25 minutes total. No Genius on the iPhone...yet, under playlist's. Expect that Friday. No 2.1 update as expected when I checked for update. That is it for the iPhone/iTunes sync report. No major changes with iPhone hooked to iTunes.
Now for the 30 gig 5th Gen iPod...no software update. Did not load it as a new device. Pulled over 1700 songs OFF of the iPod and is now reloading them.
also of note, "just for you" is no longer in the iTunes store. I guess its been completely replaced by genius (or maybe it appears after genius has finished working, as its still uploading facts about my library, I guess its the price I pay for 150 gigs of music)
