    So maybe I had a defective iPod touch that didn't display this until today. But, who else got it?

    Strange huh!? I think they're just testing it out 'cos all the leters jumble up into one big pile but I saw staff in there and favorites!:D

    Cool huh?

    EDIT: PIC! SORRY FOR THE QUALITY!

    But I'm glad they're adding this feature! (I don't know why but I'm happy that they atleast update the store now and then with things like these) And the best thing is...ITS FREE!:D

    My only question is: what "Staff" is listing their favorites and why would anyone that doesn't know them care...at all?

    Apple actually let the text display overlapped on the user accessible version of the Wifi Store?

    Something tells me it'll stay the way it is now, overlapped. Think about it, they could of tested that feature easily on a non-accessible part of the wifi store, and perfect it, instead they add the feature to the user-accessible storefront, while it looks messy?

    Either it's a rushed job to meet the 'Friday - omg we can't release a new feature on Saturday' deadline, or Apple simply don't care enough about the appearance of the wifi music store, which would be ashame, seen as though, this was one of it's main selling points for the device in the first place (One More Thing, anyone?). I've never seen such shoddy graphical representation from Apple, ever.

    I hope they do fix it, I paid near on £300 for this sucker, I expect graphical perfection, especially from Apple.

    Was there anything good/somewhat unique in the staff favs store? Or is it a rehashed Billboard/best seller under the banner of "personal" taste?
