Magorn: Proprietary content, content-blocking and "forked" versions  of Android are abominations that should offend every true techie.


"true techies" (and I am using that phrase loosely) make up %.0001 of all consumers.  No one cares.

Supes: the living hell that is iTunes for Windows


Rest assured it's not just Apple writing bad software for Windows -- iTunes suck pretty hard on Mac too. It goes all single-threaded on a pretty regular basis, plays terribly with slow (i.e. network) disks, can't handle large libraries, doesn't report write errors, incorporates 1000 different features that should be separate apps, demands a full-time exclusive lock on the library file, etc.

I'm pretty sure Apple is aware of the suck, they just either don't care, or don't know how to fix it. Things are slightly complicated because on Windows they don't want to make you install and update 7 different apps to use all their products and services, but that's not much of an excuse.

azmoviez: Wake me up when Amazon Cloud Player is available for the iPhone.  I love that the article says that I can purchase the song, download it on my computer, open iTunes and transfer to my iPhone.  Could it BE any simpler??


Damn if you weren't so truly stupid it'd be funny. You being the average apple user here's a link I found in .5seconds for the *gasp* amazon cloud player at the itunes store Link

Rincewind53: Amazon is a monopsony. Yes, the consumers benefit from low prices, but it's bad for the industries, and ultimately, bad for the content  producers.


Nothing at all like iTunes, right?

I just hope this actually works well so I don't need to deal with the living hell that is iTunes for Windows anymore.
