With over 3,100 votes from iLounge readers, our latest iLounge poll — “Are you having stability problems with iTunes 7.7, iPhone OS 2.0, or Apple TV 2.1” — has ended. Readers were given choices between issues with one, all three, or combinations of two of the products, along with an option to say that everything was running smoothly.

Over 60% of readers reported problems with at least one of the recent software releases, with the largest percentage (31%) saying they were having trouble with iPhone OS 2.0 only. Another 13% of readers said they were having trouble with both iPhone OS 2.0 and iTunes 7.7, while 12% said they were having trouble with iTunes 7.7 only. A small number of readers (4%) said they were having trouble with all three products, while less than 2% reported problems with Apple TV 2.1, or Apple TV 2.1 and iTunes 7.7, most likely owing to the small number of Apple TV users, or less serious issues. Finally, 39% of readers said that everything was running smoothly.

Our new poll focuses on Apple’s $99/year MobileMe service, which was launched alongside the iPhone 3G, iTunes 7.7, and iPhone OS 2.0, promising to synchronize a Mac or PC’s e-mail, contacts, calendars, and photographs for iPhone and iPod touch users. We’d like to know if the service interests you, and if so, why? Does MobileMe appeal primarily to your needs as a Mac or PC user, as an iPhone or iPod touch user, or for some other reason? Or are you not interested, either due to the recent service problems, because you can’t see yourself paying for it, or another issue? The new poll, “Does Apple’s $99 MobileMe service interest you?” lets you answer that question. As always, the iLounge Poll is on the left hand column of the main iLounge.com home page. Cast your vote today!

You think you might be able to link to the OLD poll results in this article, or the new Poll to take, rather than making your readers search randomly?

Yes, I see the ads. Very pretty.  But you can annoy users away by making them look rather than leading the way.  That is one reason that iLounge often has the answers, but those answers don’t get out to web search results, because of the labyrinth you build.

Mentioning something interesting on your site? LINK TO IT.

“You think you might be able to link to the OLD poll results in this article, or the new Poll to take, rather than making your readers search randomly?”

New Poll: You must have missed the second to last sentence, where the exact location of the poll was posted: “As always, the iLounge Poll is on the left hand column of the main iLounge.com home page.”

Old Poll: Our polls don’t have dedicated pages - it is a module within our home page, as described above. The only location for results is the page you just finished reading. There was no need to LINK TO IT because YOU WERE ALREADY THERE.

Regardless, thanks for the comment.
