iTunes 4.5?

Following a thread from SpyMac, TheMacMind claims:

New iTunes Features, Early!

The features posted in the new Music Store, who will be celebrating one year in service on April 28, are:

-Browse iMixes
-The Single of the Week
-Audio Charts
-Unlimited CD burning of songs (burn any playlist up to 7 times)
-Play your music on up to 5 machines (Macs or PCs)

These are all new features with exception to the the two latter, where I if I'm not mistaken, unchanged playlists can be burned 10 times and music played on up to 3 Macs or PCs.

I expect most of that will be true, with some added features and maybe a pretty big announcement. And, of course, Jobs will report on whether or not his goal of 100 million downloads during the first year of the iTMS was reached. I suspect not, but who knows (especially if the Pepsi iTunes Giveaway is counted).

Jason: I haven't tried the new ish yet. Maybe because the update ate 120+ of my got-damm songs! Ugh!! First, I got the PC version of iTunes 4.5. Spent a couple more minutes to get the Mac version and then couldn't read the "ReadMe" file. Guess I should have opted to read others experiences before preceding (especially since it was nearly 5 am in the morning!). Paul: Your bf has like two days to redeem free songs. And you don't need an iPod to enjoy the songs. Of course, it works perfectly, so maybe it would be a nice Daddy Day gift. (I'm getting the hubby something for Fathers Day, forever to be called Daddy Day by me). Posted by: ronn on April 28, 2004 09:39 PM
