iTunes 5 RIP. Your brief existence shall always be remembered.

That was fast. Only one update from 5.0. Wow.

Anyway, let's all take a few moments to remember the few moments we spent with iTunes 5.0.

I remember eagerly installing it, hoping that the playlist folders would carry over to the iPod. Alas, they did not...

I remember reading reports of some people having issues with it.

And I played approx. 1455 songs with it.


That's about all I can think of...

That must have been the most brief lived, major, version of any piece of software Apple has released!

Have the looks been retained?

I thought that was a massive step forward in terms of design.

Honestly, I could care less!

Bring on 6! (installing it on the hard drive as we speak!)

It's live on Apple's site now. It looks the same at first glance.

I actually had a hunch that if Apple released a new iPod, that a new version of iTunes would come along.

Aren't I smart?

I've noticed the play window has lost it's shiny look somewhat. It still looks cool in version 6, but looks more flat.

That looks better IMO. It just looks more clean and not as eyecatching.

I kind of like the old look. I guess the new one isn't too bad though.

I still haven't installed it.. 33MB takes a while to download :P I really wish Apple could start making an updater, where it would only update the components that needed, as I'm sure a lot of that 33MB is already on my HD from iTunes 5.

well i liked iTunes 5 it had a nice new look, and 5.01 came out a couple days after. sniffles i shall always remember you(maybe not) but this is in the iPod records book for being out barely any long.




30gb iPod photo- has been sent to my aunt. She loves it, and is very careful with it, as I've heard. Hopefully I can get it back when the battery dies or the hard drive fails.

30gb iPod video- just got it as of 12/13/05 YAY!!!

I remember installing it, using it for a few minutes, closing it, coming back to it 4 hours later, finding myself uninstalling it and reinstalling it to use it again. Then doing that every other day just to use it.

"It" made me mad.

That's funny that they changed the 'lcd' already. I don't really care either way but I do like the glassier look.

Gee and I only took the plunge and downloaded 5 the other day and was experiencing freezing issues on every other day.

I would then have to get Task Manager to switch tasks so it would unfreeze.

I wonder if there are fixes in 6 for the freezing issues on PC?

Might go try.
