Weak ass Keynote. Agree? "Special Offer"?
Hey, if I used Requiem on my songs, can they still be upgraded?
Mine isn't showing the upgrade screen - how do I get it?
I will eventually. As of today it will cost me $72 to upgrade what I have and that's not even everything.
Cheeky gits only allowing you to upgrade everything or nothing. Especially as there are tracks that I'm not that bothered about.
Does anybody know if when iTunes says replace it means they maintain the play count and ratings from the old DRM tracks?
Exactly what I was looking for. My designated ex-wife purchased some songs on iTunes which I don't need to be upgraded at all, so why bother? If there's only an "everything or nothing" deal, I will pass, thank you very much.
You must be kidding! £111.47
It's almost as though they want you to use Bit Torrent
HOW ARE YOU GETTING THIS UPGRADE SCREEN?
i want to upgrade. would love to upgrade. but i cant in one big batch like this. that is my one complaint. it will be awhile before i am willing to spend this much at once.
unless there is a way to get around the batch upgrade and do them individually?
How come the US gets 30% off the album price and it's only 25% off in the UK?
Ask on Endaget...
I hit itunes during the keynote and noticed in the uk store that all the songs had suddenly gone itunes plus and my upgrade option had jumped to 79 albums.
Most of my DRM'd music had been bought when Fairplay removal tools still worked so its already de-drm'd ... i never used it for piracy .. just so i could run audio adjustments on them so i felt it was reasonable.
Amazon MP3 store in the UK only launched a month ago ... so i think for them its too little too late cos they never advertised and i feel they've lost the game before they came to establish themselves .... people will just stick with itunes like they always did
I'm just now finishing my upgrade. 129 songs total and it really didn't take all that long to complete. Not even 10 minutes. I'm glad DRM has finally died on music. Now to kill it on Video's.
EDIT: It appears to have upgraded some of my music video's as well.
I agree with most. The all or nothing deal for upgrading is stupid now. I have some albums i really could care less about upgrading. Some I really want upgraded, and now that all tunes are going to go DRM free, the price is just insane for everyone who has a nice collection of DRMed music. Apple needs to do something about this or I will not upgrade. Don't have the funds in this economy. Sorry apple.
Well I was hoping for a big iTunes announcement and they failed to deliver. Yes, they finally are starting to improve the quality of music you can buy now but 256 still isnt good enough. And why the hell would I want to upgrade all of my music?! Why should I even have to pay for it? I already did! It should be a free upgrade to promote the use of DRM free and better quality music. Christ.
At least the RIAA is learning that people don't want DRM or ****** quality music. But it is still not good enough to curb pirating.
Did it replace the songs and keep your play count and playlists or did it put them in library next to the old stuff?
% OF is much different than % OFF. 25 is a BETTER deal. I'm still not going to whine though...
It'll cost me $14.25US to update my library. I'll have to wait until my next paycheck to do it though. :/
I'm at work, so I can't check this, so maybe someone could help me out.
I know you can't pick and choose the songs you upgrade, but if you delete the songs out of your library you don't want to upgrade, will that work?
I won't be as all my Music is DRM free already or ripped from CD
It replaced the old track and kept the play count info and playlists intacted. The old files are not automatically deleted they are moved to the trash.
Of note: Your DRM free music is tagged with your account info now.
Nah. Not sure why this is a big deal on a mac forums. Most people here have iPhones/ipods anyway. Why you need DRM free?
Maybe I could sell my apple TV though, and use my xbox with boxee.
I think there is a way to get around the mass upgrade. Remove the songs you don't want to upgrade from your iTunes library (but don't delete the files). Then do the upgrade on what's left. Finally add the songs you deleted back into your library.
It seems to be taking everything from the songs you currently have in your library and not ones from your purchase history since I don't see any on there that I have deleted from my library.
I know it's a pain, but I think it might work. I'm going to try it when I get home today and I'll let you know if it works or not.
Edit: This will not work, sorry!
Good news, thanks. I've downloaded over 1000 songs, so I'm not looking forward to seeing how much it's going to cost to upgrade.
I don't think that will work. iTunes added songs back into my library I had deleted long ago and had forgotten about.
My main reason is that I want to use Simplify for the iPhone to stream all my music and save the space on the phone for video. You can't stream DRM material.
