New iTunes: New interface, built-in iCloud

CNET - Apple announced a new version of iTunes for Mac and PC at its press conference today; it's a major update to the company's digital media desktop software, with built-in iCloud support and a redesigned user interface.

The new user interface has a wider look, focusing on a grid of album art and ditching the familiar sidebar on the left. Downloaded and iCloud content will now be displayed side-by-side in your library, and iTunes Store content is also now integrated into your library, so you can browse albums from artists you don't necessarily own.
