Why hot dogs? Is there already a thread about iTunes 4.5?

They appeared when I installed 4.5. I have the Music Store showing in my source pane. Did you have it off?

NO FREE SONGS WITHOUT CREDIT CARD INFO. Oh Apple, why must you torture us so!!

The Party Shuffle is the shizit, but does not work with the iPod... Huh??

Ooopsy thought you were talking about an issue that had always been there. I'm running iTunes 4.2. So far. Upgrading later today.

And what's with the 'no free songs without a creditcard?' Apple is no better than these cursed porn sites that require 'free age verification with a major cradit card' bullcrap!

Agreed, man, they cluttered the interface something shocking. It looked very much like the type of thing MS would hove into a music player, just to crowd the interface more. First thing I did was look to turn them off.

Can't you? I got it OK in Oz. Set up your Music Store account with a free Pepsi code (provided by a considerate US friend) and you don't need credit card info IIRC (lie about your address).

I wonder if the iTunes store will ever make it to Oz?

We can only hope.

Now all I need is a considerate US friend who has a Pepsi-code to spare!

What's new in iTunes 4.5

Using iTunes 4.5, you can DJ your own parties with Party Shuffle, share playlists with friends, print jewel case inserts, and much more.


NICE!!!

That is extremely cool - you can build a 'shopping list' of songs you want when they actually allow you to buy anything in your country !!!

So what's Apple Lossless? Does that just mean copying the files directly from the CD to your HD?

It's nice to hear about the successful first anniversary of iTunes. We even get a free song to celebrate!

America's neighbour still can't download either! I have been meaning to head south and grab a few Pepsis.... at least until Friday. But if anyone can get their hands on an iTunes gift certificate, you can create an account without a credit card, assuming you use a US addy (such as the address of the Apple Store nearest to the evil empire in Seattle... micro$oft).
Sad that Apple wasted the first anniversary by not giving a few countries the iTunes Store..... Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia

Obviously not, since that has been available since iTunes 1.0. There's a whole thread about it in Software.

On a different note, here's something interesting: I just downloaded the free Foo Fighters song, and in the Get Info window it lists its "FairPlay Version" as "2." My old M4Ps are listed as version "1." So does this mean that the new restrictions (5 registered computers, 7 burns per playlist) only affect new songs? What are the implications of this version change?

Is the iTMS working for people right now? I can't seem to connect it times out on me multiple times, worked before the update. Maybe it's been swamped because of the free song download.

Wait... why can't I post songs not in the Music Store??? Even if people can't buy them, they could at least know the names of the songs.

Grr... my list should have so many more, but Evanescence isn't on the Apple store (3 songs) and 3 others didn't make it either. My first posted one is called Resonating Emotion... whenever it shows up.

http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/M...ylist?id=15281

My full list SHOULD be:

You - Evanescence
Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
Time of Your Life - Green Day
My December - Linkin Park
Everybody Hurts - REM
Thanks that was Fun - BNL
My Immortal - Evanescence
Have you seen my love - BNL
Solitude - Evanescence
The Freshmen - The Verve Pipe
Losing My Religion - REM
Magic - Ben Folds Five
Don't Know Why - Norah Jones
Silent All These Years - Tori Amos
Stan - Eminem
War on Drugs - BNL
