Apple releases iTunes 10.5 with iTunes in the Cloud


Apple just released iTunes 10.5 to add a few new features that they've been touted for a little while now: iTunes in the cloud primarily. We've heard all the "cloud" talk over the past few months and now it's official in iTunes. This will allow you to download your songs on one device, say your laptop, and it'll automatically download to your iPhone in the background, completely invisibly. Pretty cool right? Heck yea. Requiring you to plug in your iPhone every time you wanted to sync a new song purchases from iTunes on your laptop was a pain in the ass. Now, if it would just work with where I actually buy all  my music; the Amazon MP3 store. I'd buy all my music from iTunes if it was cheaper, but 99.9% of the time it's $0.99 on Amazon and $1.29 on Amazon. That's like buy 3 get one free using Amazon. I'll take it.

Anyway, back on topic, if you're using iTunes, don't forget to keep your iTunes updated with this latest release. I just updated mine as I wait (im)patiently for my iPhone 4S!
