ITunes tracking upsets users

A new version of Apple Computer's iTunes software that tracks the music individuals listen to has struck a sour note among fans.

Included in the software update is ``MiniStore,'' which makes music download recommendations whenever people click on songs stored on their own computers, even those not purchased through iTunes. Critics say the new software, released earlier this week, tracks a person's listening behavior with a unique identification number, and does so without notifying consumers.

``What bothers me most is the fact that Apple generally doesn't do this sort of thing,'' said Kirk McElhearn, who has published several books on Macintosh computers and is author of the blog Kirkville. ``It's kind of a letdown. Someone said, `It's as if someone breaks into your house and makes a list of the books you have.' ''

The monitoring program can be turned off through an icon at the bottom left of ...

Ensure you keep old standalone installers for layered products like QT. Sometimes newer isn't better but the vendors don't archive the old versions; for example, QuickTime 2.5 MoviePlayer had Midi plugin support that isn't available for its dumbed-down non-Pro successors. I can always reinstall it since I have several old CDs with 2.5's installer on them. The old MoviePlayer can play QT 6 codecs.

Thanks Max.

I uninstalled it and reinstalled an earlier version and it is now working properly. I knew it wasn't a hardware problem because it worked with my other media players.

You should have audio there is no quicktime player that has no audio. Check speaker cord and if plugged in right hole, quicktime options, mute choice in windows audio settings, volume levels, etc.

One thing I have noticed is that the latest free version of Quicktime does not have any audio. Is there something not congigured right or do I need the pro version?

Apple became popular years ago just after they broadcast this commercial in which was portrayed an athlete destroying an image of an Orwellian "big brother" and thus portraying himself as freeing the people from such a 1984 Orwell like world.

In the last few years most all companies have given in and let go of their fight to protect people from big brother like uses of technology though.

Remember a few years ago just the use of cookies was an outrage, well now look and see if you can find any site that doesn't use them, probably even this site to record your every move and click.

It is sad, that to use technology you get dragged into this beast like big brother system that promotes the watching and recording of each and every move that every person ever does, or close to it.

This kind of technology will certainly lead to further abuses and control over people by governments, and if you want to use the technology you will have to give into some of it. This will of course lead to other things such as:

"without the mark they can neither buy nor sell"

Eph. 5:19 gives a good hint about what should be on a Christian's playlist.

Come to think of it, that'll baffle Apple's monitoring people!

Used CDs are the way to go - rip them yourself - create your own playlists - no one but you will ever know Seriously, what would anyone expect? There's probably something in the EULA for this software that says you're giving them permission to do this.
