    @Joelhatcher77 @FantasyPros @StJude Not sure the deal there. Says no issues here and we're selling in Canada on our reports. You can try the iTunes version.

  • ECearnaigh Eoin O'Cearnaigh (@ECearnaigh) reported

    @Apple screwing over customers through built-in obsolescence is beyond a joke. Having stuck with an old OS to avoid the move to a subscription service for Microsoft Office from the package I'd paid for, iTunes stopped working and £300 of newly downloaded ebooks are now useless.🙄

  • dragonbillz Bill Sheehan (@dragonbillz) reported

    @majornelson It has been brought to our attention that ITunes does not meet Microsoft standards as a program on our OS. Microsoft would need to approve all new music coming in on the program. To resolve this problem ITunes will be discontinued from Windows OS.

    iTunes: there was an unexpected error. Try again Rural internet: ya it will take 29 days of your 30 day rental to play it.

  • jordywind Jordan Windmill (@jordywind) reported

    @husseybyname Have you had problems getting it downloaded from iTunes ?

  • RecoveryRaquel Recovery Raquel (@RecoveryRaquel) reported

    @livingwithabuse Ooooof, that's the worst!! It seems like the problem was mainly in iTunes for me for the soft then loud volume changing but I haven't yet noticed it on my iPod itself. I'm also not using headphones right now though too. :/ Hopefully they clear up soon!!!

  • RecoveryRaquel Recovery Raquel (@RecoveryRaquel) reported

    I'm having a lot of problems on my iPod/iTunes right now and the only thing that changed was that my iPod updated a few days ago. To say I'm pissed and now confused is an understatement. It goes from wicked soft to loud and it's just really, really weird.

  • Finesse2Success Becca Amato (@Finesse2Success) reported

    @Peacewind13 I watch live via cable. But I also have the iTunes season and I play episodes on the Syfy website after they air in the background at work using my cable login.

  • EmuBands EmuBands (@EmuBands) reported

    iTunes Trends Data from 12th August is now available to EmuBands users via the trends menu item in your login area.

  • WhoPotterVian Sean the Mondasian Cyberman (@WhoPotterVian) reported

    @edwardrussell This wouldn't be a problem if the touring versions of these shows were still released on DVD/Blu-ray (or at least as an iTunes download). I've never recorded a comedy show, but I have filmed parts of concerts because it's the only way now that I can re-live the experience later.

  • I_Stan_Queens M💢| Hello Summer🍍| Blue Punch 💙 (@I_Stan_Queens) reported

    @HidingBuddy @TheDrakeon A little scuffle between elitist/privileged buddies who blame passive fans for not participating in projects like buying albums, buying songs on itunes and stuff and people who finds it incredibly elitist. Hope it doesn't grow into a big issue

  • blnkshi SelPink (@blnkshi) reported

    @LIKEARING YouTube ain't a problem if there's a official music video. iTunes is achievable but spotify...

  • blinkpinkeus •☽♕🍦you're gna melt🍦 (@blinkpinkeus) reported

  • anakinsama unlucken.⇝ ☆ Nanahoshi Ren's single braincell (@anakinsama) reported

    @_karimel It's technically available, I have problems with the iTunes preorder in particular so the only thing I'm really missing is Steady Goes Primitive ver.

  • danielmarcevans Daniel (@danielmarcevans) reported

    @JinnyAlyssa @thebrandypants All I can recommend is you file with the Central Bank asap. I got 500dhs stolen from my account three weeks ago on dodgy iTunes payments, then all the online problems last week. I'm closing my ENBD account, this has massively spooked me.

  • Altavistagoogle Altavistagoogle🇨🇦 (@Altavistagoogle) reported

    @caj1125 Once again, Apple TV is iTunes. Competitors include Google Play. Apple TV+ is the $5 streaming service. Competitors include Out TV and CBS All Access.

  • hawkeye33 Richard Gibbons (@hawkeye33) reported

    Ah now another old favourite from iTunes: "AN UNSPECIFIED ERROR HAS OCCURRED" How I love getting those just after entering payment details

  • iC3rv1ce Canz Flasher (@iC3rv1ce) reported
