MacVoices #17072: Kirk McElhearn Updates iTunes 12: The FAQ and Answers Your iTunes Questions

Kirk McElhearn takes up the challenge of informing you about the changes and enhancements to the latest revision to iTunes in iTunes 12: The FAQ. Various interface elements have come, gone, come back again and been updated, as well as new capabilities added. Kirk talks about some of the most used, gives perhaps the most compelling reason that iTune shouldn’t be broken down into separate apps. How and why to make a simplified iTunes interface, why it is important to dislike as well as like tracks, and the new tags specifically for classical music are just part of what Kirk discusses.
