I hate I-tunes

Let me explain. I had a creative zen mp3 brilliant no problems but 18 months ago it went pop, so I had to look for a new one. creative don't really do 80g players any more so after much searching I got a 80g I-pod classic (didn't want to as I hadn't heard good things about I-tunes). So downloaded I-tunes and started to organise my music this was not easy coverflow C**P moving music to the I-pod not easy every thing had to be a play list (no drag and drop) so after many days I got I sorted. everything was ok except I-tunes try's to take over your computer, so I stopped it updating its' and things weren't to bad. Now I don't down load music I prefer a physical copy but for Christmas someone got me a I-tunes voucher. Downloaded a couple of albums ok but then tried to download the new Delphic album (you must get this it's the best thing in ages). I-tunes can't download this without updating I said no so no album, so I relented and updated big mistake the download took ages and has now messed up my entire library so I've got hour's ahead sorting it out. Sorry for the rant but why do people like I-tunes it's c**p.

Try downloading "mgtek dopisp". It lets you sync your ipod to Windows media player.
I also hate itunes with a passion...

no because i end up buying extremely similar stuff, if not better for cheaper.

my psp can do way more then an iphone or ipod for less.

i can afford lots of overpriced stuff but its common sense to only pay for stuff thats worth it.

your psp can let you phone people / sms?

can hold 8GB+ on builtin memory?

can take pictures/video without that cheapo camera on top (even if you CAN take pics/record)

I got my iPod in September 2005 and still use it everyday, it cost £170, that works out at about 10p a day, 10p a day for my most used gadget ever seems like a bargain to me!!!


every item in the world is a bargain if you calculate it that way.

my ps2 works out to 8p per day according to that and so far my ps3 is only 53p per day and not even half way in its life cycle.

yes you can use skype to make calls on it and via the internet use websites that allow you to send sms for free.
even if you buy a memory stick pro duo, it works out cheaper.
you can still take pictures.

plus it can do more like be used as a universal remote control and ofcourse play respectable games.

oh and it can play games and music at once.

its power is demonstrated by it running windows 95 and 98.

I think people get defensive because itunes is actually a very powerful tool and Apple generally make quality, reliable products.

Apple only gets bashed by hardcore PC fans who are too ignorant to try new software or too stubborn to admit it is good (not necessarily better).

I personally believe Itunes is far superior to Media Player/Winamp/Real Player etc and is an extremely intuative and easy to use programme with a well designed interface. Yes some of the updates have caused certain albums to get mixed up again but only takes minutes to resolve

and without an internet connection? the iphone can still make calls without them.

SMS websites - lol

My iphone can be used as a remote control.

dude, you'd retract your OS comment when you see the basic spec them OS's need to run :roll:

the basic spec is so low yet iphone/pod cant run it.....what a shame.

psp is marketed for games yet it does so much more and only costs around £120

the ipod doesnt do anything to make it worth its price.
as for calling, cell phones are £10 with £10 topup so that technology isnt worth lots either.

theres a way of achieveing same call quality on psp as iphone but theres no way of achieving same gaming quality on iphone as psp.

And 'worth' is a subjective term.

I don't think Macs are overpriced, but then I'm not looking for justification.

Well I use to have a sony mp3 player and the software it used was called sonicstage which is the worst single piece of software i have ever used and makes itunes brilliant.

Even though I can (at the moment before being outsourced) afford it, I dislike Apple because of the prices they charge and their heavy-handed control over hardware you buy. It's as if you don't actually buy Apple hardware, you pay over-the-odds and it's more like a lease than a purchase as you're tied in to doing virtally everything the Apple way. Windows explorer drag-and-drop is so simple anyone can use it but I-Tunes tries to do a Pinky and take over the world!

I could a couple of decently spec'd laptops and have change to spare instead of buying a single Macbook so personally, I'm sticking to PC's.


Their laptops are about as modifiable as any other laptop I've used. In fact, the RAM and HDD are extremely easy to replace as you wish.

You can even run Windows on Macs so there's no restriction on the software one can use.

But you're right that you could buy a similarly spec'd PC cheaper.
