iTunes improvement poll ends, Fall 2008 iPod poll begins

With more than 3,800 votes from iLounge readers, our latest iLounge poll — “What possible feature/improvement would you most like to see in the next version of iTunes?” — has ended. Readers could pick from more DRM-free music for the iTunes Store, a music subscription service, a digital book download service, a way to handle device syncing outside of iTunes, speed/performance or other improvements, or say they think iTunes is fine the way it is.

Most readers either wanted more DRM-free music in the iTunes Store or speed/performance improvements to iTunes, as these two options dominated all others with 27% and 25% of the vote, respectively. 15% of respondents wanted an iTunes music subscription service, 13% would like a way to sync their devices outside of iTunes, and 8% would like to see various other improvements. Only 6% of readers said they’d like to see iTunes offer a digital book download service, while an equal percentage said they thought iTunes was fine the way it is. Thanks for your responses!

The new poll focuses on Apple’s newly-announced Fall 2008 iPod family. We’d like to know: What’s your reaction to the new offerings? Are you already planning on purchasing one of the new models, or just thinking about it? Or do you like them, but just not enough to buy one? Do you think Apple needed to do more to make upgrading worthwhile, do you think they completely dropped the ball with this family of iPods, or do you not have an opinion either way? Our latest poll, “What’s your reaction to the new 2008 iPods?” lets you answer that question. As always, the iLounge Poll is on the left hand column of the main home page. Cast your vote today!

There’s no option for “great, I bought one as soon as the store would let me” :)

I’m really impressed with the new line-up, but there’s just nothing new enough to make my first gen iPhone obsolete.
Given the past iPods I’ve purchased, it looks like I only upgrade when something truly revolutionary is brought to the table (gen 2 iPod, first gen Nano, first gen iPhone). A Touch with 80 gigs or more would have gotten my money, but alas…
Here’s hoping for a Mac tablet in October. (though I don’t expect it)

Actually, there are not so many innovations in this new generations of iPods! I am big iPod fan I used to have iPod Mini, Nano 2nd Gen, now I am using Nano 3rd Gen. For the gym i bought Sansa Clip, and i become really dissapointed, if you would compare the sound Sansa is much better and you can get this sound for $50! I was hoping that the new iPod could be better but i think it would be almost the same! Apple is very powerful company, with huge budget and a lot of researching power. I think made they made one of the best mp3 players in the history, but it has some flaws, and Apple still did not paying attention to this things! I hoping to see 5th generation in the next year with custom user equalaizer, more better sound processor and at least 30 hour battery
