    if that's the best you can come up with my guess of where apple users fall on my IQ chart. You are pathetic and shouldnt post.

    I want it to show the wallpaper when I'M PLAYING MUSIC, if there was someway to not transfer the album artwork in the first place, but I cant find an option anywhere for that

    The only way will be to go through your tracks in iTunes and delete the album artwork manually, and then resync your iPod. However, if you want to retain the artwork in iTunes, then set your iPod to manually manage music and videos, and then only delete the artwork from the tracks on the iPod.

    whats the point of a background if its never there. Hell, I'd be happy if it was just behind the icons but no apple has to leave out one of the most basic and simple mechanics.

    I guess some people find it useful. I have many tracks of the same name (curse you, The Beatles Anthology), so it's nice to be able to see what album is playing (if it's on shuffle, clearly :p) without having to unlock it.

    BUT I do like my wallpaper, and I wish it could be viewable all the time so, yeah, I share your opinion exactly.
