    I like it.

    The grid view is nice.

    And I like being able to preview recommended tracks. Just ignore the fact that they're constantly trying to sell things to you!

    What does it take over?

    I don't use Quicktime for video, so I simply uncheck the box to make it a default player when I'm installing.

    Simple.

    I'm intrigued by the third album from the left bottom row!

    It's a great compilation. Plenty of old 78s @ 96kbps, and some George Formby.

    ha ha, well spotted coopee!

    Not sure I like this idea:

    "You've got your music library, you turn on Genius -- it sends information about your library to iTunes. We can learn about your musical tastes... but completely anonymously... but we're going to combine your info with other users, and as that happens Genius gets smarter and smarter"

    I'll wait for the inevitable complaints on The Register about lack of privacy before I download it. However, Genius looks interesting; I was saying on the Sooloos thread that the interface is the important thing, and this looks novel.

    September 2009 will surely see the convergence of the Nano and Touch lines...

    I love a bit of Cullum. He took that Jeff Buckley track to a new level!

    I have to agree with you there Mibby


    I just use MediaMonkey and windows explorer to find what I want

    File manager ... right click ... play in Winamp.

    No tags, genres, cover art, playlists, shufflingor other pointless shit -just the music, thanks.

    How do you stream that over to the DAC? Or do you have a long cable across the living room from your MacBook Air?

    I use a not too long cable from my cheap Windows XP laptop to a USB external doofer then an optical cable to the DAC.

    I dare you to try an Airport Express and iTunes...

    I could even offer to lend the Airport to you in the hope of conversion!

    You would use iTunes, streaming wirelessly to the Airport Express, plugged into the back of the DAC.

    It saves having the cable across the floor

    In time you can add the iPod Touch as a remote and leave the laptop closed and out of sight.

    The Touch is flash and the ladies love it, like a Milk Tray.

    Hmm, I already have a cable for the 'leccy so not saving much ... and it won't play the 25% of my collection that's in FLAC ...the laptop is open for 'wamming... and I'd rather have herpes than a Touch... I'll give it a miss!
