I got itunes 8 - it's pretty cool. As for the rest of the annoucements, meh. Nothing that interests me. I was hoping for a larger iPod touch at a reasonable price or some new iMac/MacBook info. Oh well, no rush.

iTunes 8 does YOUR MOM! OH SNAP, LOL PWND!

Actually, 8 has a new view which I like - they got rid of that Album cover / song list view and replaced with a "grouping" type view. It's pretty cool. Also, it has a genius feature which shows you similar songs and then links you to the iTunes store to buy them , and supposedly it helps you make playlists, but I haven't tried that yet.

No, it was the like cover was off to the left, and then it had a list to the right. You probably don't know it because it sucked. The flow* one is still there. I like that one.








* don't get any big ideas.

Flow is still there.

It got rid of the view where it has the album art on the left with the songs listed on the right. Now its just the album art.
You can also adjust the size display of the artwork so it shows like 10 small icons in a row or 3 massive icons

I'm enjoyin the new genius feature. It kind of helps you get reacquainted with music you hadn't heard in a while. Too bad it doesn't get imported to my 5G ipod.

Yeah, the Nanos and Touches/iPhones all use flash-based storage, which is why their storage space is significantly lower than the Classics and they're much thinner.

If my Classic ever does crap out, and there's a 64 GB Touch or something at a decent price, I'd go for that.

Ah, ok. Thanks! iPods rarely seem to last more than 5 years from what I've
heard, so, hopefully, after I get my new classic, they'll have improved the storage capacity on the Touches by then. So, when I do get my new iPod how will I transfer the music from my old one to the new one?

Yeah, I hope so, too.

Old iPod to the new one? You'll need to have a computer with the original tracks on them or something.

Yeah, so could I just plug the new iPod into my laptop since it has all the songs already in iTunes?
