    Default iTunes Might Get A Social Life


    If you’ve been waiting for Apple to launch a cloud based version of the iTunes store you’re probably going to have to wait a bit longer for that wish to come true.

    At next weeks ‘Special Event’ it is widely believed that Apple will announce a new version of the iTunes store that will be web based. Speculation is that Jobs and Co. will build upon iTunes Preview that was launched late last year and add social networking features to it. Users would be able to share their musical tastes with friends but not actual songs.

    Record label executives speculate that a wireless system could also be implemented making it easier for you to manage your music. The theory is that Apple will make it possible for you to copy a song from your iPhone to you laptop without connecting any wires.

    Apple already lets you sync your music on up to five devices. This wouldn’t require anything more than an updated version of iTunes itself. It looks like we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer for Apple to let us listen to our tunes anywhere we want in the cloud. Apple has yet to receive the necessary licenses from the major record labels to move the iTunes store into the cloud and it’s unlikely that they would proceed without this approval.

    Wi-Fi Sync has been out for a while via Cydia. If Apple updates iTunes to allow Wi-Fi syncing this will be a welcome improvement to how we currently sync our music. More will be revealed next Wednesday.

    Wi-Fi syncing will be nice and great for on-the-go trips.

    Side note: This should be posted in the Mac News.

    Sucks for us iPhone users that Google bought and subsequently shutdown Simplify. That was easily one of the best apps to ever come from the App Store. Loved having 200gb of music on tap no matter where i was. That's the only thing I'm wanting from apple in terms of online/iTunes improvements. Well, the only realistically feasible thing.

    Has anyone else noticed a lot of the new software apple is making are basically modified versions of jailbroken apps? I still would like wifi syncing without the jailbroken app though.

    They have been doing that since the first jailbreak. Every new feature they come out with was already available in some form in our jailbreak community.

    Probably a stupid question. But I've heard of this whole iTunes cloud thing. What exactly is it?
