iTunes updated to 8.0.2 – Get it Via Software update
iTunes 8 includes Genius, which makes playlists from songs in your library that go great together. Genius also includes Genius sidebar, which recommends music from the iTunes Store that you don’t already have.
With iTunes 8, browse your artists and albums visually with the new Grid view; download your favorite TV shows in HD quality from the iTunes Store; sync your media with iPod nano (4th generation), iPod classic (120GB), and iPod touch (2nd generation); and enjoy a stunning new music visualizer.
iTunes 8 and iTunes U are now accessible with VoiceOver on your Mac.
iTunes 8.0.2 improves stability and performance and provides a number of important bug fixes, including:
• Addresses a quality issue creating MP3s on some computers.
• Fixes a connectivity issue with the iTunes Store when using some Internet proxies with Mac OS X.
• Improves accessibility with VoiceOver.
I love handy apps and Cool OSX Apps has posted a very cool and handy one:
“CoconutIdentityCard 2.3 is a free application for OS X, that tells you when and where your Mac, iPod or any other Apple product was built. You enter any 11 character Apple serial number and the application will identify the build location and the date when the product was built.
It is also able to check your serials numbers against an internet database of stolen Apple products.”
