Disable iTunes 6.0.2's MiniStore
Authored by: Blah on Jan 18, '06 10:45:50AM
Let the option be disabled by default, with an explanation the first time you enable it.
Wow, looks like I called the exact solution, huh? :-)

Given their solution, and how quickly it was employed, I'll give them the benefit of doubt and suggest that it was an "honest mistake", and move on.

But it does seem odd that this can be done "remotely", without any update to the code itself. At least not unless you had to be logged in or something.

Anyone else think it's odd that a feature can be "turned off" by Apple remotely? Doesn't this imply that they can "turn ON" another feature remotely at will???? Anyone have any insights into this?

update to Mini Store to make it opt-in

It's not so surprising once you realize that the Music Store (and Mini Store) functionality in iTunes is just a specialized web browser. The content (what you see inside the borders of the content area) is HTML downloaded from the Apple servers. So all that was needed to change it was to change the server-side code. The hooks to hide & show the Mini Store were already in iTunes.
