    iTunes as a 64bit Application ??
    Had Activity Monitor open just now, and gutted that Safari was taking up 896mb of memory (why) ?? lol and so i went down my list and quit Dashboard client (is there a way to permanently disable this) ?? and i noticed iTunes didnt have the 64bit next to it... Going further down the list i noticed that all other  Apps where working there guts out in 64Bit . . . . Why isnt iTunes a 64bit App as yet ?? or is it and then how do i start up iTunes as a 64bit App ???

    Any ideas friends ?? And yea any idea on how to permanently disable Dashboard client, as i never use dashboard and dont really like it at all, so want to disable it . . . OR can i trash the whole Dashboard thing without stuffing up my machine... I mean is there anything in Dashboard if i trash it that has a coercetion with any other App or something in the system ??

    Cheers

    My iTunes isn't 64 bit either.

    Down at the bottom, check out - "All system applications except DVD Player, Front Row, Grapher, and iTunes have been rewritten in 64-bit."

    Not sure what else you're looking for...
    It's not a 64 bit app so it won't run in 64 bitmode.
    iTunes 9 still not 64-bit, internally referred to as “iTunes X”
    Yes, it's from 09 but if you just Google it, nothing shows up regarding it being 64 bit or running it in 64 bit.

    Yea i know i understand all that and i did google it and all i got was what you got. Im trying to understand why it isnt 64bit yet and wanting more info as to when they look like making it 64bit and why they havnt yet.

    Not sure what else you're looking for...
    Its not a End of the world question if i cant find a answer, but im always adding to my knowledge of Apple and Macs in general and i would like to find out why and when . . . . Because of the GOOGLE i have done and as you, bough up sweet FA i would like others opinion as to why they havnt implemented it as yet.

    Well people can speculate all they want. Only people who work for Apple specifically on iTunes would be able to answer that.

    I could say they don't want it to run 64 bit simply because they don't want to, or because they don't see a big reason to run 64 bit as their consumer base doesn't even notice it's not 64 bit.

    Yes yes yes ....... There are a cpl member in here that know the 64bit system like the back of there habd and i just thought they might have a inkling as to why it isnt in 64bit . . Coding?? or some other reason. One of these members even wrote a Sticky on it all (which im having trouble finding) and new his sh1t . . . He would have had some idea as to why it isnt in 64 bit .....
    Im not asking anyone to speculate, im just trying to find out more info and as i said a member wrote a big sticky on it . . . .
    Jusy looking for info or anything . . . .

    Why is that so hard to understand .. ???

    As for iTunes, yes it would have to be completely rewritten in cocoa. Right now it is written in Carbon which makes 64 bit virtually impossible.

    Ok so if it works who cares if it is 64 bit or not? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    It's fine to try to expand your knowledge, but if you look on Google (as posted twice in this thread) there is no answer. Who cares? Why must you know? Call Apple if you want the answer, don't post on forums with no Apple reps...

    That has to be the most ridiculous statement i have heard in a Mac Forum

    Another search on Goole comes up with this:
    64Bit iTunes!!!!!....but not on a mac. - MacRumors Forums

    If you read the posts, look @ post #2.
    "If you think that the 64 version on Windows has true 64 bit support etc you are wrong. The 64 bit version only makes iTunes run on 64 bit systems without errors.. It doesn't get true 64 bit support, it is just as bloated as 32 bit version."

    Hope your brain just grew 2cm.

    So get off your high horse and let me ask my bloody question
    " really like Gruber's speculation" quoted from the reply

    SPECULATION

    ROFL
    NOT FROM APPLE
    JUST SAYING
    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH NUFF SAID.

    You get off your high horse please.
    KTHANKS.

    OH WAIT HERE'S MORE:
    2) iTunes probably won't benefit much from it.

    Point 2 is especially important. What would apple achieve by releasing a 64 bit version of iTunes? Currently, when I run iTunes, it consumes about 70 MB of RAM. It would take a lot for iTunes to require more than 4GB of RAM, that 64 bit addressing would give it. And even if it could, I really wouldn't want iTunes consuming 4GB of RAM. Then you could increase the speed of MP3 (AAC) encoding if it was 64 bit. But this stuff is pretty quick already. I think in most cases, it's limited by the speed of the CD drive you are ripping from, and not the speed of your processor. Movies and stuff play back just fine without skipping.

    So, all I have to say is that it would be a lot of work, with no benefit, and nobody would even notice. We'd be much better off asking for 64-bit apps that matter like MS Office (outlook especially), and Visual Studio.


    SPECULATION

    The thing is, Apple is spread thin on a lot of projects: Mac OS, iPhone OS, MobileMe, iWork, iLife + all the hardware projects. For the moment, a 32-bit iTunes just works (barely, unfortunately, for me). You'll probably see a major redesign of iTunes with the next Mac OS iteration, when the OS will really be completely 64-bit.

    PROBABLY
    MEANS NOT GUARANTEED

    SPECULATE SOME MORE!!!!!
