iTunes Blows Too

iTunes Blows Too

I recently wrote about how the Mac dock bugs me and a some people seemed to agree.  Now I have a beef with iTunes.  You know what, iTunes just plain sucks.  When you see past the sexy interface and quality skins and get down to managing a large digital library, it falls completely apart.  I hate to say it too considering I have about 40 gig of music, videos and apps in my library.  It's painfully slow, always buggy, and ridiculously awkward if you're a serious digital collector and have a lot of digital detritus to manage.  I've been toting my incredibly bloated iTunes library around with me across multiple desktops, laptops and external driv

Jailbird Beware

The Mac Dock Blows
