does it usually take this long (i.e. more than 10 mins) or has it fucked up (again).
also, i hate itunes.
i know not why.
its ok i've switched the other computer. wow.
and he smells like an old mans willy.
I don't think I can help.
Scrabulous you bellend.
is shit, so are the Apple corp. Had so many troubles with their stuff I plan not to bother in the future. They make aesthetically pleasing goodies for yuppies. *End Apple rant here.*
Well preach me the 'Apple products are great' gospel and you might convert me... There's a fat fucking chance though because the amount of trouble I've had with their shit in the last 3 months is beyond absurd. And I'm talking about top line Macs as well as iPod related stuff, plus the amount of people's iPods I've seen either fuck up or die is about 8 in the last year. I'm not saying that their user interfaces are shit or anything, far from it that's their strong point. I was regarding to reliability in their products. So go on tell me how "fucking wrong" I am.
I think that's wrong for sure. I reckon you're right that they've been making more software and hardware slip-ups of late (going by those I know with Macs), but I also think that's probably because they're reaching a much larger userbase (hence whatever % of faults they had before is now a bigger number of units) and people are waiting for them to trip up and pounce on it more quickly.
In retrospect that may seem a harsh statement, but it was one borne out of pure frustration and anger. By spitting my dummy, I missed the mark. Still though I am put off from buying their products just through the deflating personal experience I've had. About six weeks ago my friend smashed his 80GB video iPod on his ceramic kitchen floor because he uploaded one single that caused his iPod and itunes to crash indefinitely. There's alot of quirks witht heir stuff that needs sorting out...Also M4A is a dodgy format which annoyingly puts protection on your music files making it difficult to share stuff (Similar to WMA's DRM shite).
and takes more and more time with the more songs you add all at once, obviously.
I usually just drag songs into itunes rather than clicking "upload" and selecting them through files.
ripping cd's takes ages, at least it does on this computer...slightly irritating when you lost all your music and need to re-rip all your albums.
i dont mean this!
this is so gay. months and months of gayness.
someone buy me a mac please. x
