iTunes 7 under fire
Apple's recent release of its iTunes 7 multimedia software is drawing complaints from Mac as well as PC users, which range from poor sound quality to mobile phone troubles. Apple has already acknowledged numerous issues which include AirTunes' inability to connect to remote speakers, iTunes 7 inability to play interactive booklets purchased from the iTunes Music Store, album art not downloading properly, iPods not playing content purchased from the iTunes Music Store, and numerous cell phone users reporting that music transferred to their handsets after upgrading to iTunes 7.0 fails to play on the device. Some users reported only receiving audio during video playback, and one user claims his iTunes software has slowed to a crawl following the update, according to CRN. "Unless it is absolutely necessary for you to upgrade to iTunes 7 right now, I would advise holding off until a correct version is released - these forums are full of members who have spent hours trying to work out fixes - just stick with 6.0.3," one user suggested.
