when is Apple gonna drop their idiotic itunes monopoly for managing ipod and iphones?
or at the very least, make it USABLE?
1- upgrade your desktop computer to a new disk drive and OS.
2- Of course, drive letters and disk space get re-arranged.
3- so, itunes lets us change the library location.
4- but, if we do noting else it silently keeps all old stuff away from the new location, in the old one!
5- thinking you have saved everything, you erase the old location
6- you then pick up your old ipod, and try to sync it.
7- upon which itunes erases it and has got nothing either in the old or new location to put there.
8- your collection of cds and captured music is now utterly gone except in your iphone where you got a copy.
9- so you try to copy from the iphone to ipod via your itunes, would you not think?
10- bzzzzzzt! you can't pull from a device into itunes. only push. apparently, to stop "piracy". as if!
so, MY music, which I paid for and stashed away - stupidly - into itunes, is now in my iphone and can't be copied anywhere else!
fuck you very much, Apple!
first chance I get to drop everything I own from your stable, you can rest assured you'll be ejected from my life at high speed!
yeah, you heard it right - the f-bomb. deserve nothing less.
like, I have to take the shit you want to dish out and still have to pay for it as well?
anyways, on to better things. finally getting rid of my Autumn cold.
and nearly finished with this year's disaster recovery exercise at work.
this time around it took only 4 hours to go through the lot and leave everything operational.
when I started doing these things, it used to take a week.
but of course we don't strive to improve what we do, isn't it?...
