Since the release of the iPhone, the new generations iPods and the iPod Touch (or as I like to call it the glorified iPod and the not so glorious iPhone), Apple has released multiple iTunes updates, which oftentimes, in-turn, update the firmware on their devices – the iPhone, the iPod Touch, the iPod Classic, the iPod Nano… I think you get the picture. The only problem is that most of us are completely happy with the way our devices work… it’s iTunes that is giving us the problem!
As you probably know from my other posts on this site, many people are very unhappy with the “Determining Gapless Playback Information” functionality that is built into iTunes, and most of us want it removed, or at least a simple way to disable it. Unfortunately, iTunes 7.5 hasn’t addressed this issue.
Here’s what Apple says iTunes version 7.5 will do for you:
Features the ability to activate iPhone wherever service is offered and support for Phase, a new interactive music game designed exclusively for iPod nano (third generation), iPod classic, and iPod (fifth generation). This release also includes bug fixes to improve stability and performance.
“Improved stability and performance”… it’d be nice if they told what steps they took to make this happen. The simple removal of “Determining Gapless Playback Information” would be a huge step forward in my opinion.
