I'm reading lots of complaints about the new iTunes 8 update causing
horrific problems on Windows machines, including widespread reports of
STOP errors, aka the Blue Screen of Death. My colleague Adrian
Kingsley-Hughes has asked readers for reports and Gizmodo has a sketchy post as well.
The author goes on to blame some extra software Apple is "sneaking" into the download. I tend to doubt there is some deep conspiracy here, but you can read more if interested. (remember Coyote's Law:
When the same set of facts can be explained equally well by
- A massive conspiracy coordinated without a single leak between hundreds or even thousands of people -OR -
- Sustained stupidity, confusion and/or incompetence
I think I will wait a while before updating, though.
