Kirk McElhearn hates the new iPod interface and he goes as far as saying that it’s Apple’s stupidest interface innovation ever. Wow. I’m not too fond of it based on my experience with the Nano, but he really hates it. Trying to read text with moving images is annoying and the option to turn it off would be appreciated. I personally could care less about the album art feature. I still don’t watch videos, very rarely store pictures and I don’t purchase music, which is why my collection is sans album covers. Kirk has found that if you shut off the album art the interface speeds up. I’m with you on this, Kirk. Do you guys like it?
