    I'm interested in the iTV... but the ipod announcements were a letdown.
    I'll probably buy another shuffle to tide me over until a widescreen iPod. :hs:

    and since they have new tv show resolutions, do they upgrade any shows you've already bought, or is this another "fuck you, loyalist" from apple?

    :ugh: So 2GB and 8GB only come in one colour each? I want a 4GB black. I think I'll just get the 30GB now it's cheaper.

    Note to anyone updating iTunes:

    After the update, it'll go through ALL of your songs determining if it has gapless playback with another song or not.

    Make sure you don't need to turn off your computer anytime soon if you have a lot of songs. :hs:

    8965 for me :wtc:

    now it's done.

    but my shuffle won't stay in the menu area when it ejects now.
    anyone know where the setting for that is? :dunno:

    I wonder if with the iTV you could hook up a external DVD drive and use that as a DVD player with it
