FUCK itunes!
I am so god damn sick of itunes. I used to use it religiously and now I hate it like I hate old people driving on the road. FUCK THIS STUPID PROGRAM. Seriously, fucking shit house apple can't get anything right. It's slow, CAN'T EVEN BURN DISCS without giving me shit errors and I swear to god I'm about to kill someone.

FUCK ITUNES. ALL IT DOES IS LOCK UP MY COMPUTER. It's the first program I've had that hasn't run well on Windows 7. My iphone just died too. I also just got a call from my gf on my trusty sony erricson begging me to help her fix her ipod because it doesn't work anymore either.

fucking apple.


Oh yeah, and the reason this is in the DJ forum is because I need someone to recommend me a program similar to itunes but I'd really appreciate it if you could inform me of one that actually works.

thanks!

/rage


edit: Just so I don't upset any fanboys here, I still like and would PREFER to use it, but it just aint working right atm, thanks to the useless chumps over at apple.

After this experience I don't think I want anything to do with macs. I can't stand OSX. Yeah yeah, it's fantastic but not for me.

I'm getting an error because itunes of all programs has a strange conflict with daemon tools. I can't seem to fix it. It's happened before and I managed to fix it but itunes it as it again. It's a great program when it freaking works.

I had less trouble with vista than I do with itunes.

Pretty sure there's a windows release too. Check it out. Free, open source, and the library layout is fantastic.

Apple hardware and software can suck my balls. It's good for trendy wannabe's sucked in by slick marketing, who want to use technology with absolutely no clue about what really goes on under the hood.

so you're stuid enough t beleive genrlisation LOL lame ass

when windows has all this built into the os -- disk partitioning utility, automatic hourly backup, can run the opposing OS in full or vmware, mount iso from within the OS at a double click, has a search facility that automatically indexes all pdfs - and can search for test strings inside them, doesn't have a file system that defragments, has a shortcut to open the options menu in any apps, and have inbuilt ability for more hardcore programing and photoshop -- give me call.

widnows does not hold a candle to OSX.

Does anyone else find the quality of tracks burnt with itunes to be a bit lacking? Personally I don't use it for burning my cds for mixing.. Maybe it's the format or something

Please shower us with more of your knowledge about 'hardcore programing' (sic). I'm really learning here.

also, does windows force you to still paste print screen into paint -___- and i assume it won;t let you screen shot portions of screens. i am assuming windows doesn't allow taking videos of the screen so you can show people how to do things in a video form and send it to them :/

just to clarify, this is all in built in, not add ons like deamons tools, or paragon partition manager etc.

and no windows 7 does not allow editing the names of open files, i just tried on my win7 box.


also, you can drag and drop apps between machines, because osx does not have a registry/dlls lol

and you can keep your apps when doing a repair install, because there is no registry, you might just lose app settings, not access to the app.

i know it's expsenive, but have you tried jaadu VNC? it's a really competant vnc app. has pretty much a full keyboard. though for most tasks (itunes) it's over kill. but good if you want to do general PC stuff from a distance.

Actually it does... It's not as nice/easy as OS X but it is there...

Nope... Had problems with Roxio Easy CD Creator when I was a PC user before, but never had a problem with iTunes on my Mac...

i guess my point was kinda missed. print screen only copies it to memory it does not instantly output to png or jpg by default. it's fucking annoying to have to go into paint and paste and save :/

I use QCD after I got sick of Winamp many years ago. It's fine as a media player and nowdays it's been extended a bit to be a proper media library (although I don't use that functionality).

Its not that hard to do, i have a third party app on my mac (snapz pro x) does screenshots and video.

I have worked in at for 7 years +, i wasnt a fan of the macs until the new macbook pro.

Got to say, they have come a LONG WAY...

And if i get bored i can just load windows on it...

i admit, i waited till leopard till i jumped. quick view for docs is awesome. helps me so much with uni.

i even realised recently that if you go into the print spool. and click on any print job it will quick view them. which was good when some of the file names were just numbers and letter, and i was able to find the unprinted docs (toner ran out) and then move them into a folder to print later.


but my point is. that OSX has so much built in, which save installation of lots of crap. it's very well thought out imo.
