    In this photo of the activation vid, I noticed a new look of the status bar, not a big improvement, or is this already in iTunes?

    Of course there will be a new iTunes. There'll be a whole iPhone section - I think that's a little more significant than that progress bar.

    The iTunes used in the activation video is mocked up anyway. The reason they showed that progress bar is that they couldn't show the loading one - it would've revealed how long it takes to sync a few gigs of data. The whole UI is also running larger than normal. Apple probably has a demoing app they use to render OS X at larger sizes and control the animation of it. This is also why they seem to have an 80 GB iPhone - a simple production goof.

    oh , I get it, that's also why the cursor in that video always goes straight to the place that's where it's needed to go.

    Not to mention the fact that the itunes window depicted is clearly using resolution independance, as the sizes are larger than the standard Mac OS X DPI setting. It's a mockup.

    I am surprised about the 80GB bungle though. Wonder how long it'll take to get fixed?

    Do you think the next version of itunes, when the new ipods come out in sept. 5, is gonna be named, 7.3.3 , 7.4 or just 8 ? or is the whole name of itunes gonna be renamed?

    I think that the iTunes name will not change. Think about the new iMovie. It was a new app written from the ground up but the name, basically, stayed the same.

    I really hope!

    they separate the movies tv shows part of itunes into its own application. Showtime maybe?
    I cannot stand the way itunes handles that stuff. i want my movies in my movie folder, tv shows in the movie folder, downloaded content to go there as well. but I want all my music on my internal, and my movies on the external. basically, Itunes sucks with video. Such a shame because it is hands down the best player for music out there.

    i like the app a lot but i don't always like the itunes store, it's difficult too use, if i want too view trailers this is probably not the easyiest way but i first need to go to the american store than to video than left under there's a button theatrical trailers and then it's still hard to find the trailers easy, but i do liek the way itunes store handles music, it's easy to find new hip stuff , and podcasts

    Am I missing something? You do know that you can arbitrarily tell iTunes where to store each item in your library, right? If you're gripe is that its not easier (or more automated, using "rules" like a mail program) once you do that, I think that's something else entirely. You might want to submit it as a request to Apple though if you're specific about it.

    Do we know with fair certainty that there will be an iTunes upgrade to coincide with the iPod upgrade on the 5th?

    If there is an iTunes update (a big one), I'm guessing there will be some iPhone tweaks as well. Why update just one part of a big software package?

    Just my opinion....I could be wrong...

    but with all the rumors of itunes kiosk, videos or tv shows in europe, several new ipods coming the chance that there's gonna be a big itunes update is big i think, and it's also a long time ago itunes had a big update...

    I still remember when itunes 4.9 came out ,, ooh long time ago....
