Disable iTunes 6.0.2's reporting of listening habits
Authored by: FenrisUlf on Jan 11, '06 02:57:46PM
From the iTunes website:

Discover New Music New in iTunes 6. Looking for some new tunes? Tap into the 2-million-song treasure chest of the iTunes Music Store through the new MiniStore. While you're browsing your own library or importing a new CD, MiniStore appears at the bottom of the iTunes window and shows you other albums from your favorite artists and artists like them. You can even see reviews of these albums plus what other listeners who like this artist purchased — so you'll never be at a loss for new music to discover. When you're ready to go back to full-screen mode, click an icon and MiniStore tucks away, ready to pop up again later when you want to explore some more.

Guess they did tell you. And it's not exactly hidden like Sony or MS's mining have been.

Who are you that walk across the graves of giants at this late hour?

Disable iTunes 6.0.2's reporting of listening habits

Did you, as a Mac user, see that in Software Update before downloading the latest version of iTunes? Or do you download iTunes update from the web site every time?

I upgraded through Software Update, and there was no information as to what new features were in iTunes.

Apple's botched MiniStore intro
Authored by: sjk on Jan 12, '06 06:52:57PM
Yep, Software Update gave no indication of the MiniStore being added and enabled.

Of course I quickly disabled it but was disturbed knowing how trivial it would have been for Apple to add a simple dialog of explanation with a "Don't show this message again" checkbox, just like they do with several other iTunes features that are activated for the first time, to stop (or at least minimize) all this negative fallout over it from happening.

Plain and simple, that's my opinion of how Apple botched introducing the MiniStore to iTunes users.
