When Apple changed from 680x0 CPUs to PowerPC?
Without much editing, you could have written your post back then....
Apple is quick to offer a wide variety of downloads
that dont work on computers just purchased a year and a half ago
(i.e. they dont bother telling you of the software version requirements except in this stealth very small font that is difficult to locate). So after you download a variety of programs for ITUNES, QUICKTIME, the WINDOWS on MAC application or dozens of others, the program says it cant be loaded because of upgrade requirements.
1. These software are irrelevant
2. I feel APPLE is trying to indirectly pressure its consumers into purchasing new Operating System upgrade by releasing software that your computer wants to download (ITUNES ALERT ON MY LAPTOP FOR NEW VERSION) (OR QUICKTIME NOTICE ON MY COMPUTER IN RE TO NEW APPLICATION) but says cant install because you need a new Operating System. I think that is total BS. The computer/ITUNES that susggests downloading upgrade doesnt know of the upgrage requirements?
3. My Operating system on my Powerbook G4 purchased barely a year and a half ago works perfectly fine. I dont need all these notifications about "upgrade your itunes" "upgrage your quicktime" try this, try that when all of them require a new OS. Well. My Itunes works perfectly fine, and this nonesense is exactly that.
A. APPLE NEEDS TO INFORM VERY CLEARLY OF OS REQUIREMENTS PRIOR TO DOWNLOAD.
B. APPLE NEEDS TO CONFIGURE ITS ITUNES TO KNOW THE NEW AVAILABLE DOWNLOAD REQUIRES NEW OS.
Without A or B the stated #2 is totally valid.
