“In another hopeful sign for the industry last week, downloading sites Rhapsody and Apple’s iTunes bragged that paying customers were flocking their way. And Apple, NEWSWEEK learned, quietly informed some music insiders that it’s moved up the date for expanding its current Mac-only iTunes for the vast universe of Windows-based PCs to mid-October. Apple couldn’t be reached for comment. As weeks go, it was a good one for the record industry.”

About time… and I can’t wait.

But don’t feel so bad about MC9.  I just bought it too, but at least it allowed me to get a couple of Ipods up and running.

Can’t wait for iTunes!

I hope iTunes will actually be a good port for PC… unlike some PC to Mac ports I hear about.

Quicktime Player…not the codecs, the player itself is still crap on Windows when compared to the Mac version.
