iTunes 11 UI

Wow, what a letdown once again.

Not to mention that the backlight of my 3GS has stopped functioning and I don't have the tools to repair it. iPhone 5 should arrive any minute since last Friday, hell I've ordered it a month ago at least.

Not a good Apple day.

You should have ordered your Apple IPhone 5 from Apple.Com rather than from a Third Party. They ship directly from Foxconn in China whenever Supply is low and Demand is High. P.S. i am Replying to the Previous Poster in case anybody is wondering what I am talking about. Just FYI.

Further P.S. it's pretty Obvious that Apple is NOT going to Launch a New Product on Halloween! That would be way to Scary of an Event that they may get Attacked by someone Dressed Up as Jason (From the Movie: Friday the 13th), Freedy Cougar, and/or The Marsh Mellow Giant (Ghost Busters), while having their Keynote!

Did you suggest me I should have paid $899 from apple.ca instead of $279 with Fido and still be stuck with a 60$/month fee for all my cellphone services ?

[/quote]I would have gotten it from Apple, too, for travelling since its factory unlocked, any SIM will make the phone work. However, the LTE will not work around the world since our iPhone 5 is only for CA and US which s*cks. So I'm sticking with my 4S until we get a better LTE iPhone.

Factory unlock costs between $25 and $125.

Plus, I haven't been outside of Quebec since the last 12 years and I have so many things to pay it's not going to happen anytime soon.

I go to Europe and the USA. So having a "true" LTE world phone would be cool.

Rumored to be either today or wed @ 10 AM PST, that's the time Apple usually release their software, iOS 6.1 beta 2 came out yesterday at that time.

I hope Ives is working on changing the UI, I still hate the skeuomorphic elements like the fake LCD panel and "metal" buttons.

Personally, I'd rather have better Windows performance than a new UI. No matter what system I run it on, iTunes is always one of the few apps that runs like absolute dog ****.

Better upgrade then. iTunes runs fine on every Windows machine I've used it on in the last two or three years. Same speeds as any other regular music player. Really, if you have problems with it, perhaps you should uninstall the Applehate.exe ? :D

Jonathon Ive is probably trying to fix all the mistakes Scott Forstall made.

It's noticeably slower at loading than other software, like Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Suite - that's loading it from a SSD. It's also less responsive than most other applications, including web browsers. It's not that it has really bad performance; it's just that it's far from good. It's been chronically underdeveloped and when Apple has added features they have tended to be pretty disastrous, like the Ping and Genius (got a lovely "An unknown error occurred (-3212)" warning just a moment ago).

Apple needs to properly optimise it for Windows and ditch the horrible, proprietary interface. Hopefully iTunes 11 will improve things but I'm not overly optimistic based on Apple's track record.

I do hope that we'll see a "native" interface with iTunes 11 for Windows, but I don't think it'll ever happen.

I haven't experienced any performance issues in a few versions though. iTunes 10 has worked for me pretty well, and I have several hundred GBs in my library. Admittedly, I only use it as a music player, nothing else, so I don't know if that affects it or not.

Now... release iTunes 11 already!!

iTunes on Windows as a music player alone isn't bad. I didn't have any issues with it til I got an iPhone. It can't find it on the same wifi, lags when I plug it in, lags when it syncs, lags when it does anything really. I really hope this is an overhaul, not a new skin.

You guys do realize that it is Thanksgiving Weekend here in the U.S.A. And that most White Collar Workers who work @ places like Cupertino, CA, U.S.A. (Apple Head Quarters) have Thanksgiving Day (Thursday), Black Friday, Saturday and Sunday off as part of a 4 Day Weekend while enjoying Turkey, Stuffing, Sweet Potatoes, and Gravy with their Extended Familes as part of this 4 day U.S.A. National Holiday! Just FYI!
