iTunes 6.0.2

Sometime during the middle of the day today, Apple released iTunes 6.0.2. I know, it sounds like just some stupid little upgrade, but there are actually 3 new features. First of all is the Ministore. What it does is show you information about other albums by the artist and a bunch of other stuff when you select a song in your library. It's kind of cool, but really, not much of anything. Also, with this new version, you can turn your own videos into iPod format through iTunes, which is pretty cool. The last new feature is pretty stupid. It's called AirTunes. It lets you stream a song to up to 3 different wireless home theater systems. Pretty useless. Overall, if you have fast internet, you might as well download it, but if your bandwith is precious, don't bother. If you want it, click my little friend named linky.

  • iTunes has always had this 'new' airtunes feature u mention, and i'd rate it as one of the most useful features iTunes has. Its all about what you want to do with your music.

  • Yeah, sorry about that, I realized it was an add-on for Airtunes, not a whole new feature. I guess it's useful if you have wireless stereos, but most people don't.

  • What Ton means by it is pretty useless is that the majority of iTunes users probably don't have wireless stereos or even wireless routers. Man, a lot of them don't even know how to download music or load their iPod. So what he means is for the majority of people, it's a little side feature that they will probably never use. But for the small percentage of people with this equipment, it's definitely a great feature.
