For one thing, iTunes development is not only bogged down by non-code issues like the legal blockages on the Internationalization front, it's also bogged down by the fact that changes need to be made for both Mac OS X and Windows, then tested on both platforms, before they can be rolled out and baked. Many rumormongers on the grape vine can be heard over talking about the 'Battle' conditions currently present at the mothership in Cupertino.
In no small way is iTunes team adequately prepared and insider cut throats say that the team is horribly over worked and are even limited to 15 minute lunch breaks because they are being pressured by Steve Jobs to keep up their industry lead. One iTunes team member speaking to Rumors under anonymity said that he and a co worker have been reduced to bringing in a bag of rolls and a case of tuna and a jar of Mayo because they don't have enough time to get other food means or make it to Caffe Macs, the campus restaurant. Also because Jobs wants the team working as much as possible, he has banned video games, instant messanger and even mini fridges from the iTunes sector.
All in all, we believe that iTunes is heading in a great upward direction. Steve Jobs, however should be ashamed of himself for overseeing such wrenched conditions to one of his most prized teams. If you think so too, you should contact him and tell him about it.
