I agree completely with Robert’s sentiments about iPod v2.0. If this is a temporary oversight, then I can live with that.
What I fear is that we’re seeing a genuine branch that won’t ever get merged—kind of like 9.2.1 and 10.2.5. We’ll see iPod software versions 2.1 and 1.4, the latter permanently shut out of alarm clockiness and on-the-go playlistery.
Makes you kind of want to go Discount Tire on their ass—except that that would hurt an innocent iPod.
