I think that iTunes 2 has that feature that tried to make all songs play at the same volume. Some CDs are louder than others and the stuff I copied from cassete tapes was certainly all over the place in terns of volume. it is not perfect (some songs still play softer than others), but I think that Apple must have done something because the great majority of songs now play at roughly the same level.
Also, I think apple put in a bug fix. I've had a problem with playing iTunes for long stretches of time using the sourndsticks. At some point, the sound would cut out (even the alert sounds). I called harman-Kardon and they said that this was an issue with iTunes. Sure enough, I could play for hours with another MP3 player, but with iTunes all out o fthe soundsticks would eventually die. This seems to be fixed on iTunes 2. =>
My girlfriend got it this morning on her iBook and the visuals have been improved also... it looks like there is more than just a modified version of GForce in there, or maybe they just added more types of visuals to GForce. Either way its pretty damn cool.
Now does anyone know of a way to get WhiteCap to work with iTunes? I have to admit that I realy haven't tried to hard but I couldn't get the damn thing working.
