Robinson Meyer on iTunes’ design flaws

Robinson Meyer of the Atlantic has more to say about iTunes. After his earlier piece on the metadata mess, here he eviscerates the design rather thoroughly:

Focusing on that bar, here’s what sticks out to me: iTunes can’t decide how to address the user. The user’s MP3 library sits behind the menu title “My Music.” But Apple Music’s recommendation interface is accessed by clicking on “For You.”

Is the user “my” or “your”? Is iTunes an extension of the user or is it in conversation with them?

That’s just careless, and again uncharacteristic of Apple.
