There are indications that iTunes as the hub is losing favour. As it should be. iTunes was a terrific app ten years ago, but today, it has absorbed too much functionality that there has to be a rethink.

That’s a smart observation. As an Apple user, I’m accustomed to the iTunes experience on my Mac. I quickly forget that most iTunes’ users are running Windows.
That explains a lot of why iTunes is so clunky by Apple’s modern standards. Windows sucks the life out of it.
