New iTune is lemon

Bug in the Apple
Thu Sep 14 2006, 16:18
THE LATEST version of Apple's iTunes is proving buggy with punters complaining about poor sound quality and skipping tracks.

Version 7 was launched by Apple as the "the most significant enhancement since it debuted in 2001".

Apple customers, not one for complaining until every thing is officially confirmed, have been writing to various message boards to have a moan.

We do not think that getting comments like "ITUNES 7 RUINED MY LIFE", "I recommend walking away from Version Seven" are the sort of significant enhancements Apple had in mind.

Initial reports were dismissed as being "only a few Windows owners" but then a few Mac people started to have the same problem. Some users complained that tracks they had previously bought from the music store had vanished after the upgrade.

Only a small number of users who have posted say they are not having any trouble, and threads that convert users back to 6.0.5 are getting a lot of attention.

Apple has made no comment about the problem yet. More here. µ
