iTunes problem solved
By Dave Winer on Thursday, July 28, 2011 at 3:32 PM.

Just recorded a 20-minute podcast with the iPhone Voice Memo app.  #

I normally just right-click on the memo, choose Convert to MP3 and then upload the result. #

But I must have installed a new version of iTunes and the command is gone. #

So I have no idea how to proceed. There's a command in the Advanced menu called Create MP3 Version, but it's grayed-out with the cursor on the memo. #

Apple -- why do you keep changing things like this. Oy. #

Update: I found a way to do it. I had to dig around in the Finder to find the file (they also removed the Reveal in Finder command). I copied it to the Desktop, then dragged it onto the iTunes icon. Boom. There's the Convert to MP3 command. So they just took it out for Voice Memos. (I can hear their internal discussion. Very few people use it so let's move it. I happen to be one of the people who use it.) #
