The entry below is classified as a LEGACY post, meaning that it was written (well) before the current version of Avalonstar was released. Although these posts have survived the numerous moves over years, there is no guarantee that they've survived the trip unscathed (especially the links).


So if you're living under a rock, iTunes 9 came out today. To practice writing short posts, I only have two things to say:

Genius Mixes and Plastic

To the iTunes UI Team

For the love of all that is holy, STOP DEVIATING FROM MAC OS X. Seriously guys, do you get off at making iTunes look different? What is this, plastic? Now you'll have all the rumor mills saying that this'll be what 10.7 will look like. I'm calling it, right now, some upstart on Wall Street is going to analyze and predict that 10.7 will look like iTunes 9.

To the Mac OS X UI Team

For the love of all that is holy, WILL YOU IMPLEMENT THE DAMN ITUNES SCROLLBARS AND LET AQUA DIE THE DEATH IT SHOULD HAVE DIED MILLIONS OF INTERNET YEARS AGO? Seriously. I'm sure the iTunes UI team is RIGHT NEXT DOOR. You could, you know, go in ninja attire one night and steal the NIBs from them. It's THAT easy, and you'd be able to dress like NINJAS. WIN WIN AMIRITE?

(But in all seriousness, great job guys. The pros definitely outweigh the fashion faux pas.)
