    I was kinda hoping they'd evolve the playback controls in iTunes, what with the lame small-sized seek handle that you have a fricken hard time seeking with... what with the seek intervals being relative to your song lenght (i.e. it will seek in 1 second intervals on a single song but in >10 second intervals on a longer podcast)... but nothing.

    Anyone else?

    Pardon my ignorance, but what are you talking about?

    Gotcha. On the rare occasions I use that, I simply hover my mouse over the bar and use the mouse scroll wheel to make fine adjustments without even clicking on the handle. Works just as well on an hour-plus file as it does on a 2 minute file.

    Hmm, i tried your scrollwheel method on a 2-hour podcast and it jumps in 30-second intervals. Not good.

    Interesting. I tried it on a 1hr, 12min recording and it moves in 2 or 3 second intervals.

    Maybe it's my Logitech scroll wheel setting which I'm not changing because it works fine in my OS. I am on Windows by the way.

    That may be the difference.

    I hope they put proper multitouch in 10, i hate those sliders when im watching videos, just let me pinch for fullscreen and three finger swipe to seek already.
