I can’t believe this update’s not getting more press.  I’ve been waiting a long time for related artist info. based on what I own/play.  This frees me from tons of other software reading my itunes library or asking me to rate artists, etc.  So simple.  Look at what I have and tell me things you think I’d like.  Nirvana.

How do you turn off the “ministore” (preferably without getting rid the store in the source list)?

I don’t want Apple shoving their store down my throat, especially since their songs are overpriced and of poor quality. The ministore is equivilant to having ads in iTunes.

The recommendations are horrible, too—I don’t want Yellowcard, Thursday, or the Strokes disgracing my music library.

The built-in iPod video conversion definitely should have been included with the first release of iTunes 6, but better late than never.

I’m glad I checked these comments to find out how to disable the MiniStore. This happy owner of three iPods, and iTunes user since the day it was released for Windows almost took the drastic measure of uninstalling iTunes. Thanks fellow iLoungers!

There are other, troubling issues of privacy in this release.  See this piece on BoingBoing:

As for turning off the mini-store, idiosyncratic, there’s also an added widget at the bottom of the screen like the one that hides album artwork that will turn it off.

I didn’t know about the built in converter.  That’s great news.  I’ll have to try it later.

I did change some of my videos to TV SHOW instead of movie and now they don’t appear in the TV Show playlist.  They were previously listed in the Movie playlist.  The only ones that show up in the TV Show playlist are the ones that I have downloaded from iTunes.  I can still find the videos by going into the Recently Added playlist though.  Has anyone else had this issue?

I dont want you shoving your whining down my throat. Why don’t you do what any normal parson would do - search through the options and turn it off.

I’ve downloaded the update and it’s running fine, but I’m not seeing the option to select multiple speakers. When I click on the speaker selection, I see each Airport Express listed individually, along with “computer” as a sound output option, but I’m not getting any choice for multiple speakers. Anyone have any tips on what I can do to remedy this?

stfu up tilda.  I searched through the preferences and couldn’t find anything, so I searched for it just as the above gentleman did.  Quit being a toolbag.
