iTunes 7.5, QuickTime 7.3

Apple on Monday released iTunes 7.5 (Windows), an update to its software for managing connected devices such as the iPhone and iPod as well as music and video content. Version 7.5 features the ability to activate the iPhone wherever service is offered and support for Phase, a new interactive music game designed exclusively for iPod nano (third generation), iPod classic, and iPod (fifth generation). Apple also said that the release, coming just days before the launch of the iPhone outside of the US, also includes bug fixes to improve stability and performance. Apple also released QuickTime 7.3 (Tiger, Panther), which addresses critical security issues as well as brings support for iTunes 7.5, adds updated support for creating iPhone-compatible web content, updates JavaScript support in the QuickTime Web Plug-in, and includes "numerous" other bug fixes. The updates are also available the software update function.

    Bluetooth broken

    I installed this update last night, and rebooted. My machine (Powerbook G4, 1.33) did not restart properly and it required me to hold the power button down to shut it off. After that, my Bluetooth feature is broken. I get a squigly through the bluetooth symbol on the menu bar and cannot get my BT to work. Anyone else??

    Leopard broken too

    I installed the update and have an even bigger problem. Leopard will load and I get a desktop . . . but I also get the endlessly spinning beach ball. Luckily I have a carbon copy of my system on a boot drive . . . or I would be dead in the water! I would wait before trying this upgrade.

    Bluetooth back

    I reset my PMU and got my bluetooth working again! Possibly coincidence?
