Apple Updates iTunes and QuickTime
Wednesday September 7, 2005

Apple has released iTunes 5, bringing new features and a refined look to the world's most popular digital music jukebox and online music store. iTunes 5 includes a new Search Bar to make it even easier for users to find what they're searching for; the ability to organize playlists into folders; Smart Shuffle, which lets the user change the "randomness" of shuffled songs; and the ability for Windows users to automatically sync contacts and calendars from Outlook onto their iPods. The iTunes Music Store has also added parental controls and album reviews, and now features a catalog of over two million songs, making it the largest online music catalog in the world.

"iTunes is widely regarded as the best jukebox, with the world's most popular online music store built right in," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We are constantly improving iTunes with new features like Podcasting and better searching because we love music ourselves and want to surprise and delight music fans around the world."

Apple also released QuickTime 7.0.2 via Mac OS X's Software Update utility. Apple says: "QuickTime 7.0.2 delivers numerous important bug fixes and compatibility enhancements. This update is highly recommended for all QuickTime 7 users." The company also notes that installation of QuickTime 7 will disable the QuickTime Pro functionality in prior versions of QuickTime, such as QuickTime 5 or QuickTime 6.

Has anyone notice a difference in audio quality with music store samples? Either Apple lowered the bit rate or something is wrong with iTunes 5.0. It doesn't sound as good.

I haven't noticed any difference in the quality of the streams. They still sound pretty good.

Just be glad you don't have iTunes 5 for Windows. It's a giant mess!
