iTunes sucks balls

Every time I use iTunes, I hate it. And now I have yet another reason to hate it:

itunes upgrade required

Oh fuck off, I don’t believe you. I’m running 10.2.2 and you’re telling me that I need to upgrade to the latest version just to stream a video? Bullshit. You’re making me upgrade because you think you can make me upgrade. Well fuck you, I’m not going to, so I won’t bother watching the iTunes Festival performances either.

    • Negative, iTunes sucks even more because the Apple folks think Windows folks should all assimilate when the should have tailored the UI for the audience. You don’t see European auto makers forcing us to drive on the left!. Get real.

      I wanted to help me wife by importing music into her new iPhone 6s, but could not get iTunes to accept Drag-and-Drop. For real! This many iterations of their product and they still ‘bunk’ it up?

  1. itunes is a pest and should be exterminated. Sadly the ipods are truly nice devices. I use Sharepod, although it still needs the above mentioned plague installed.

  2. I agree. I have been fighting Itoons for years. Duplicates, multiple Match’s, oops – Itoons deleted that song and you have to re-locate it. Reload windows and all of your nightmares start all over again. How could such a big company have architected such a flaming piece of crap? Thank God these dinkus’s didn’t build nuke plants. Pow!

  3. AGREE!! Why people buy apple products is something I will never understand. I think the thought process is something like this: Ooooh look how shiny that is. Boy I really want that nice shiny thing, I don’t care about the price. And by the time they realise they’ve been bent over a barrel and now apple have their hand so far up their asses they can work their head like a puppet it’s too late. So they attempt to rationalise it by saying ‘i’m alternative, I don’t subscribe to multinationals like windows. I like to think about things differently. I’m an andividual. I’m creative. I have covered my overpriced piece of aluminium with alternative stickers.’ Then they go out and buy more overpiced shite.

  4. sorry. That rant came in the wake of my wife posing me the simple question of ‘can you put a movie on my son’s i pad’. Well shit what could possibly go wrong?

      • That has happened in the past. Thank you for the advice I will take a look at handbrake. I have a conversion program but it leaves a watermark. That’s my point though any other device you can simply drag and drop avi files. But no apple will only accept mp4 and it must be synched through the most irritating software… Unless everything you own is apple it is massively inconvenient….

  5. I mean they update this shit like twice a day. why do they update it in a way that makes it worse. Isn’t an update meant to make something better? How do those board meetings go ‘I know, let’s make something that breaks down, loses information, and constantly crashes. Then let’s make all the settings menus in difficult to find areas because people will be stressed out by too many options. Then let’s make sure that, if by some miracle people find the options menu, it is completely useless and doesn’t do anything.’

  6. Thank you for the advice. I did eventually manage to find a third party conversion program but it leaves a watermark so will give handbrake a go. Thats my point though, any other device you can simply drag and drop avi files, but with apple you need several pieces of software to even put things on there…unless everything you have is apple its such an inconvenient mess.

  7. I agree with everything here. It’s 2021 and apple and microsoft have gotten worse. The younger kids just don’t seem to understand how they have ruined the productivity they used to provide and generally how their business practices are so incredibly un-empathetic and greedy they should be looked at like cigarette companies – okay that’s probably extreme but you get the point. Most companies this size suffer from being too big. I went to an extremely good school, I haven’t purchased a computer in 20 years – just make them myself, my first email account was 1993 the same year I started surfing the web when Yahoo was a bunch of links – you would look up finance companies and all the companies online were literally linked to – after it got too large then we had this thing called “Search” – these companies Microsoft and Apple mostly have repeatedly disappointed me in the early 2000’s and it just gets worse. I liked them when 100 companies were larger than them. Microsoft and their “I’m sorry we don’t recognize that product key” Please buy it again from us and you can complain for months and we’ll just laugh at you… Apple changes the interface every 3 months so I have no idea how to do things that were simple every 3 months – huge productivity waste. Who cares what an icon looks like or why change something that works fine for 10’s of millions only to make10’s of millions also re-adjust. Why don’t you try to get it right the ‘first time’ instead its changed every 3 months – does that mean that every 3 months it sucked so bad you had to redo it? What does that say about your past 17 interfaces – you used to not change them and be good. Go back. Also why when I hit a button now all 7 of my apple products change working and settings on some other device I wasn’t working on change and now all of my photos are on my kids ipad and then on someone else’s phone and now that picture I don’t want everywhere is suddenly everywhere. Oh would you like to change that – just spend 22 hours understanding how we have altered every function (its progress people!) so we can sell you monthly subscriptions so you may over pay 10x so we can remain large and not be responsible nor attentive to our customers. As long as we have 6 million likes who are they to complain right?
