      Hi there,

      it's been a while since my last post, sorry.
      We have reached 2500 signers. Yeah! :)

      At the moment there is no information from apple about this issue.
      Very sad :(
      But there is no reason to give up! The discussion about the removal of Cover Flow is still present and alive.

      I highly recommend to leave feedback to Apple about this. You might not get a response, but it's for sure they do read it. They have to get flooded with feedbacks from people who want Cover Flow back, so please take a little time to tell them you want it back. Tell this to everyone you know.

      Before 2012 has ended, we have reached 1500 supporters. Great! :)

      I really think our petition is going very well by now.
      A lot more people and blogs have recognized it.

      If it goes on like this, it's just a matter of time until we get back our beloved Cover Flow :) Thanks to all of you.

      I wish all of us a happy new year and a soon reaction from Apple.

      Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone! :)

    7. 1000 supporters !!!!

      1000 signers! WOW!!
      I wish to thank you all for your great support. :)

      Meanwhile a lot more countries joined the petition. It spreads the web more and more.

      I decided to write an email to Tim Cook. I told him how much people do miss Cover Flow. How much they are frustrated and upset about the removal of it.

      By now, we are "just" 1000, but if you search the web, there are a lot more people...MANY more...and the number is increasing every day.

      Apple has to listen to their customers. We have to get Cover Flow back.
      We need it!!

      I hopefully think, that somebody at Apple (maybe Tim Cook himself) will see this or will give me a respond to my email. If I get an answer, I will let you know.

      In the meanwhile, we have to keep going further. The number will increase more, I know that, you know that. Maybe not fast, but it will continue.

      Thanks to everybody. You're great!! ;)

      750+ people have signed!! Time for a short statement:

      Most signers yet are coming from Europe.
      Most are from Germany and France, followed by the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Austria.

      The second most signers are from America:
      The United States, Canada and Brasil.

      Many signers are coming from Australia.

      Some people have signed from Asia: China and Japan.

      What I miss until now, are people from spanish speaking countries. Unfortunately I'm not fluent in spanish (and other languages, except english and german) but I'm sure there are a lot of people in these countries (and not only in spanish-speaking) who are missing Cover Flow the same way we do.

      So this is actually an "I need everybodys help" Scream ;)
      Share it anywhere in any language you can!

      For 5 days, 750+ signers are quite good, but there are still a lot of people over the world missing Cover Flow, too. And they are not yet aware of this petition.

      TELL THEM ;)

    11. Removed from apple support communities (Part 2)

      Christian Theißinger
      Petition Organizer

      Maybe some of you have seen a thread in the apple support communities, regarding the removal of cover flow in iTunes 11.

      Link: https://discussions.apple.com/message/20432841#20432841

      This is not the only one about it. The first time I posted links to this petition, the admins removed it (see first entry). But since the thread has expanded that much, I thought I should try again, to tell the people that they are not alone with their opinion. It took less than 2 minutes and my entry was deleted again. This time I even did not post a link.

      In the email I received from the admins the first time, there was an interesting comment:

      "We want everyone to be able to contribute to our forums and have THEIR ISSUES ADDRESSED. We feel that we have a very strong community and that it is an excellent resource for users to GET ASSISTANCE."

      It's both, curious and ridiculous how they handle with critical comments of their customers.

      This is NOT a customer-friendly reaction! This is NOT Apple-Like!

    12. 500 !!

      Christian Theißinger
      Petition Organizer

      We reached more than 500.
      For a petition, not older than 3 days, this is amazing. :)
      More and more websites and blogs spread this all over the net.
      The search results to this petition are increasing.
      Even the number of users, sharing it via facebook, twitter or else, is growing. Great! :)

      Reaching the 400 took less time than the first 200. That's pretty cool :)
      Meanwhile I found some blogs supporting this:

      English: http://allthingsapple.me/users-protest-against-removal-of-cover-flow-from-itunes-11/

      German: http://www.apfelpage.de/2012/12/05/petition-gestartet-der-hype-um-cover-flow-in-itunes-11/

      French: http://www.macg.co/news/voir/258105/une-petition-pour-cover-flow

      I wish to thank them for their support.

    20. Petition links removed from apple support communities

      Christian Theißinger
      Petition Organizer

      Unfortunately, the admins at the apple support communities removed my links to this petition, because they were not in accordance to the terms of service. Of course, that is true ;) But now it will be harder to find for people who feel the same like us. So please, everybody, share, share and more share it to all you know. Apple has to see this ;)

      This was a truly unique way of browsing through my music. Not only did it look cool, but with the full screen mode it felt as if I was playing my music via a high end music stereo.

      I invested COUNTLESS hours collecting and correcting all the artwork for all of my music and I connected my computer to my big screen TV so that when I play my tunes the coverflow comes up on my big screen (or it USED TO...)


      Please, please, please make iTunes THE BEST again and bring cover flow back.

      Thanks so much!
