Launch Of iTunes 11 Expected Today

Nov 29 2012, 2:00am CST | by

Well rumored anyway

Today could usher in the next chapter in Apple's digital content distribution platform. Rumors are beginning to point to a debut for iTunes 11 as early as today. This would just narrowly fall with Apple's previously promised release date of 'no later than November 30.'

Although, if you look back far enough, Apple had originally said that the new iTunes version would be available in October. The company changed its tune (no pun intended) due to unspecified delays, and then started to assure consumers that it would be ready by the end of November.

Well, that clock is also ticking. If iTunes 11 does roll out tomorrow, it will be without much fanfare. Apple certainly has not announced any sort of press conference or anything of that nature to show it off.

But iTunes isn't nearly as important as, say, a new edition of the iPad or iPhone. It is a content delivery system. The enhancements with iTunes 11 will no doubt be less than earth-shattering.

However, it is expected that Apple will finally use the new version to integrate other products and services with iTunes. So you'll be able to have a much deeper connection between your iTuens account and your iCloud account. In addition, Apple will likely enhance the social connectivity features with iTunes 11, so you'll be able to post your purchases on Facebook and Twitter, and all that sort of social jazz.

It's also possible that the new iTunes will have better content discovery options, especially for users trying to find new apps, which continues to be a less-than-perfect experience for Apple's mobile infrastructure.

How to join together audiobook tracks

Jul 23 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: Mac World

Washington Nationals v St. Louis Cardinals
Reader Dave T. seeks to lessen some iTunes tedium. He writes: I listen to audiobooks on my iPhone, ripped from discs I own. But ripping them is inconvenient as I load a CD into my iMac, iTunes pops up, I press Command-A to select all tracks, click on Options, select Join CD Tracks, click on Import CD, and finally click OK in the Import Settings window to import the selected tracks as a single track. Doing this for a 20 CD book is tiresome. ...

Christie's To Auction Working Apple-1 Motherboard Designed By Steve Wozniak
Scroll down on the Mi 3 “features” page and you’ll see this image, named “detail-camera.jpg”. (Cached version, for when Mi pulls the original.) Take a good look at the camera in that image, then look at the app icon for the current version of Aperture. (Cached.) It’s a simple copy-paste-skew job of the lens, and not a very good one. Now re-read this.  ★  ...
