iTunes 4.8 is available today. I ended up downloading with Opera as my Safari (well, actually NetNewsWire, but it uses the WebKit) download just got me 4.7 again. I plug in my iPod and iTunes updates as usual. I call up iSync (to also update addresses and calendar on both iPod and cellphone) and now iSync shows me a red warning sign.
You no longer synchronize information on an iPod using iSync. Instead, use iTunes. [Button: Open iTunes]
I open iTunes again and check the Preferences, with the iPod plugged in. Sure enough, there are the choices for contact and calendars. I use iTunes to update the iPod again and now iSync pops to the front.
Summary: iTunes didn’t just pick up my iSync settings for synchronising my iPod. I now open iTunes to update calendar and addresses on the iPod, and that runs iSync. I open iSync to update calendar and addresses on my cellphone.
I open Quicktime Player to view the Serenity trailer. Clicking the link throws me into iTunes which accesses the Music Store and the trailer starts playing.
The obvious conclusion: iTunes is soon to replace all other applications on my Mac. Want to make a movie? Open iTunes. Want to look at your photos? Open iTunes. Have a letter to write? Open iTunes.
