@gruber To me it sounds like the opposite of stilted: informal, kiddy.
And is a physics genius the person you'd ask for music recommendations? Oh well, I guess it's like 64-bit highways.
I'm sure they could come up with another localized filesystem hack so that a .app wouldn't be necessary. :-)
@Twitterrific The other annoying thing about the alert is that it opens the page in Safari, instead of in the nice built-in browser.
@Twitterrific Bad Apple. How about doing what Exposure does? Or put it inline (like The Deck) instead of an alert?
Surprised that Apple chose to dilute their Genius brand. Or do they plan on replacing the real-live geniuses with an expert system?
Right now: go on a trip with a little MacBook drive, buy some content, if your disk fills up you have to make a backup or throw it away.
@sethdill E-mail please.
@georgedick I think in practice people wouldn't re-buy often. It's a safety net that would encourage sales.
@Twitterrific Why have the alert at all?
@Twitterrific Can you explain, or is that covered by NDA?
iTunes should let you re-buy content for free, as with iPhone apps. Who wants to store and backup GBs of HD content locally?
@Twitterrific I don't see that mentioned in the list of new features.
@Twitterrific Stop alerting me about your other great iPhone apps, which consist of yourself and your premium version.
@dsandler So that it can show the appropriate RTF file depending on your language.
@cbowns Yeah, not sure why I need to update QuickTime to play the new video content. DRM goodness? iTunes itself works, however.
@fetjuel That was sensible once upon a time. Using the Symbol font was a pain, and it messed up searching.
Hey, I don't need to restart after installing iTunes 8.
@fetjuel The ASCII ones aren't real inch and foot marks.
The Nike+iPod uses curly apostrophes and double quotes instead of actual minute and second marks.
