A Mac Conspiracy of Silence - Updated

I don't know if it will make much difference but Apple quietly released iTunes 7.0.1 to improve stability......

The man commonly referred to as his “Steveness” by the Mac-eratti, Steve Jobs to you and me, made one of his famous product presentations on 12th September.  Inter alia, he announced iTunes 7.0, an upgrade from iTunes 6.0.5.  A geek at heart I quickly upgraded our home Mac.  Soon afterwards SWMBO complained that Entourage (Outlook for Mac) kept crashing.  I switched her to Mail.  Thought nothing about it.

The weekend approaches; time to update iPod so that all those glorious BBC podcasts will keep me happy as I tried not to become another Russian road statistic.  It automatically tried to update SWMBO's iPod, and failed.  I plugged mine in, it failed to mount.

Did the 5R's, reinstall, reboot, restore etc.  No change.

Read the discussion forum on www.apple.com.  WE ARE NOT ALONE.

How can you release a KEY piece of software that fails to interop with key software, that fails to load and has over 2,000 individual readers researching how get back to the previous version?

Now if this was a M$oft the Apple blogs would be full of it; laughing at those less fortunate than us and their unfortunate inability to use software that works.

As it stands so far on the 5 Apple and gadget blogs I subscribe to - SILENCE.

Double standards?

It is hard to judge how many people have had this problem. Certainly many, many people have updated with no ill effect. On top of that Apple has released a fix within a few days of the original release.
