Public Service Announcement

Read all the comments, too. Sad :/ All it would have taken is a little tiny dialog explaining the new behavior to make people *excited* about it, instead of pissing off people who REALLY don’t want that behavior by trying to slip it past them.

*UPDATE 1/18/06*

They fixed it. The text describes exactly what’s happening, shows very clearly how to disable the mini store, and most importantly, requires positive action on the part of the user to enable the feature. Good job, Apple. Just keep this in mind for next time, OK? ;)

    Yeah, it bothered me just a bit until I realized I could disable it quickly. I was more of the “hey, I need that window real estate back!” rather than “hey, I don’t want you to know I listen to Britney Spears! (the first album was HOTTT)” but it’s comforting to know that closing that pane solves the problem.

    You’re right; had Apple just popped up a window entitled “What’s New” … would have been much better.
