My existence is pitiful indeed as such trifle matters obsess me.
But when Steve Jobs announced iTunes 10 last September 1st, I didn't have my Mini MacBook Pro 3,11 within reach. I was in another city where work is and the HP Mini 311 was at home with my folks. I couldn't just rush out to the mountains, itching as I was to update my little rig but duty was beckoning me to stay and so stay I did.
It was then that I decided to install iTunes 10 on my newly Windows 7 Enterprise updated workstation? It wasn't such a bad idea; I got a taste of what things would look like in the new version. I'd say I was pleased - with the new aesthetics at least:
Of course, I still wish the background wasn't as stark white as it is. I miss the black background in earlier iTunes version, or was there ever one? I can't remember if I was just always applying a hack to get the background black.
But at least I'm digging the new iTunes sidebar. The general greyscale-like theme is discrete - a contradiction to the garish white background that coupled with a super glossy screen as the Mini 311's, could potentially be hostile to the eyes specially when using the netbook at night.
And now I wonder where "Ping" is...
Maybe it's Mac OS X exclusive like the live streaming for September 1st's Apple Keynote?
