update to Mini Store to make it opt-in
Authored by: hayne on Jan 18, '06 10:49:55PM
But it does seem odd that this can be done "remotely", without any update to the code itself.
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.
