Apple hiding from users

Apple ported DTrace to MacOS some time ago. This is very good for everyone. However one would be surprised if wanted to instrument iTunes (and perhaps more applications) - you can't by default as they changed dtrace code so you can't measure some applications.

From Adam's post:
"Which started me thinking... did they? Surely not. They wouldn't disable DTrace for certain applications. [...] But that's exactly what Apple's done with their DTrace implementation."
