apple released a dot update to the latest iTunes (from just a couple of days ago). there were reports of itunes libraries becoming corrupt and other stability issues. this update is said to address and correct these issues.
if you downloaded iTunes 7.1 a bit ago, check with apple’s software update (under the apple menu) or from apple’s download site.
along with this update is continued discussion of the apple tv beginning to ship. there are reports of people that have ordered the apple tv seeing their credit cards charged and being shipped (i would imagine middle to end of next week we will see some of the first “unboxing” pictures).
more to come as people start getting their grubby hands on the final release and use of the apple tv.
