Apple fix iTunes Ministore howler…

Presumably bowing to pressure, Apple have changed the way that their new integrated ministore functions in iTunes so that now it’s ‘opt-in’ rather than ‘opt-out if you can’. I posted about this situation in a subtly titled post a few days ago – Cynicism and Stupidity at the iTunes Music Store – but it was Boing Boing and affiliates who really mounted up the pressure after receiving tips and analyses from people like Marc. I don’t really have a lot more to say on the subject – I’m relatively comfortable with the solution (although I still think it’s a bit of a missed opportunity). I just thought I should update you guys.

The original implementation was a bit of a shock, but never really a concern. The new opt-in is not just a good way to explain what that damn box is and how to close it, but it’s what they should have done from the start.
Even Apple makes mistakes!
