Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is a welcome surprise for those of us waiting for Ubuntu 10.04, the Lucid Lynx. Several users are reporting that their iPod Touches and iPhones (including the 3GS) work in alpha 3 - without tweaking, without jailbreaking, without patching - with Nautilus and Rythmbox.

Itunes always did send your collection data to Apple and I think most people did not know that (which is sufficiently secret)

That data enabled Apple to make the Genie feature in the first place.

@kragil:
have you got any evidence for this?
That's the reason why users should read softwares Licenses; don't matter if it's OSS, freeware or closed source!

making libelous and defamatory statements are punishable by law and subject to monetary damages and punitive relief.

Then most people must have been blocking it as Genius was useless when it was first introduced (and still is for some genres) due to..... lack of data.

As Genius is and always has been opt in how exactly is that spyware if I choose to allow it?

Apple always gathered data about users music collection (via cover download etc).

How else did Steve in his famous "thoughts on music" know that only 3% of peoples music has been bought on Itunes??
