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.


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??

Not to say they aren't gathering anything, but couldn't he have pulled that % out of his rear?

@kragil:
it's so easy to do this! let's try together:
We sell mp3-player and Music:
We've sold 10 MP3-player in each one has capacity for 10 Songs:
we've sold 20 Songs in our Music-store.

How Many Percent of the Music we sold are on our MP3-Players?
as you can see it's not difficult to make such statement
