@Lee I'm pretty sure it has everything to do with the Doge.
@salesmakers yikes, that's no good!
@salesmakers what plastic holders are you referring to?
@furbies it's definitely been there since the beginning. It's just one of those things that people may have missed or forgotten about.
@MacFrankie Now THAT'S cool.
Sure thing, Eolake. The best piece of advice I give to others who feel the way I do about Apple's direction is to write them directly. Use the bug reporting system to point out specific examples (http://bugreport.apple.com). They usually make fixes based on this stuff. It's also useful to send them feedback at http://www.apple.com/feedback. And don't forget that you can email Tim Cook himself at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm in agreement with you, Jory.
Gene: That makes the most sense, but the album name line seems to be the most reliable. It's probably because the track control is also a tap target. Which is stupid for control center.
tonywardmusic: I don't believe there's a way to get it to be visible in the Go menu without holding option. The next best thing would likely be a keyboard shortcut.
