Coming in here to say FUCK iTunes!!!!!!!!

Cranked up iTunes to do a bit of promo and purchases management, and all my playlists are now empty. Seems I have to recreate them all from scratch, thank fuck I've been exporting them to RekordBox

Seems I'm not the only one either http://www.google.com.au/search?clie...w=1081&bih=996

Yep I hate Itunes too or any apple product for that matter. Did a gig 2 weeks ago and the woman who arranged the gig wanted some of her tracks in her iPhone to be played. So I said no worries. Plugged the iPhone to my Win7 laptop and I couldn't see anything apart from her pics on her phone.

Then they said I need iTunes. So I agreed to download it and install iTunes. For the life of me I couldn't work it out. I even let the woman sit in front of my laptop so she can do it. To me it look liked it was syncing all here tracks to my laptop. When I went to look for it (using Traktor 2) I couldn't find any tracks at all.

What a stupid app!!! Why can't it just be as simple as plug Iphone and mount it like a storage device that shows her tracks. My HTC is simpler.

That's just user error. They're like that by design for anti piracy reasons.

Because it was never meant to be used as a mass storage device. Why would anyone assume that it could be?

I guess people assume it could/should because so many others do...all in all, Apple and iTunes is very limiting in that sense

Not allowing people to use a phone with Gigabytes of storage as a portable HDD is not user error, it's typical Apple "fuck you" design.

No, it's user error for buying a device and expecting it to work as mass storage where at no point has Apple ever pretended or advertised it as such.

It could work. It could very easily work, that's the point. They purposefully keep a feature out which would benefit a lot of people.

It could very easily work. It's an antipiracy thing, it doesn't work, it's never worked and it's never been advertised that it should work, anyone who expects it to work needs to do their research.

That's one of many reasons I hate apple products. I'm against piracy but I just hate apple products.

That's right. Because it did something it wasn't supposed to do, not because I bought it unwaringly expecting it to do something it doesn't do. That would be my fault if I did, not iTunes.

You're a dick

And BTW, I don't OWN an iPod for the very reason that it's so limiting in the ways you can put stuff on them, and get stuff off...so it's not user error on my part, I was just commenting...they're shit, through and through

No, user error for purchasing a product not intended to be used as mass storage and then expecting it to be used as mass storage, you don't buy a bicycle and expect it to peddle up hills for you do you?

As I said, each to their own, I don't have a problem with people not liking Apple products, but expecting them to do something their not designed or marketed to do is almost as stupid as your notion that people buy Apple products purely on the basis that they're well marketed/that's what they're told to buy.

Put away your Apple blinkers for a while and grow some common sense

Thought about it, but I don't know when it happened and have added and retagged alot of media recently, was safer to just recreate them while switching windows between RekordBox and iTunes.

No, that's true, but my girl got an iPod and thus you HAVE to have iTunes to put music on it...once you then have all you music in the iTunes library, it's a bit silly not to use it really.

My only beefs with iTunes are tracks not adding to the library, either dragging and dropping or File -> Add, sometimes somethings just will not add...and a couple of occassions when I've burnt CDs with the "include info" thingy checked, yet said CD comes out with Track 1, Track 2 and in tagging.

Other than that, iTunes itself isn't so bad, bit rescource hungry and a lil slow at times, but iPods/phones/pads are so fucking limited compared to other media devices out there
