    I was looking at Google Analytics' browser stats for my website just now and noticed an "iTunes".

    The version given when I click for more details is 4.7 (which would be a pretty old version of iTunes)... any explanation for this?

    Hey I figured it out after Googling the user-agent string... turns out some people change their user-agent to "iTunes/4.7 (Macintosh; N; PPC)" to trick sites into thinking they're delivering content to iTunes...or something.

    Close thread please.
