MacVoices #14150: Ted Landau on the iTunes Bug, Acquisition Roulette and His Magic Number

Ted Landau  starts off by discussing the current round of  acquisition roulette – who might win, who might lose, and who’s playing, and ends up talking about prudence in installing software upgrades. In between, he takes a deep dive into the iTunes bug that might have caused some of your folders to disappear, and explains out why Apple isn’t losing the “next big thing” race.
