Windows 7: Why Is iTunes a Bitch?

Exactly right.....with a Windows computer, unless you have an iPhone or a Touch, better to not install iTunes, IMO. Most every other iPod can be used with a few third-party apps to get music loaded on them.....foobar2000 if configured properly, Mediamonkey, and WinAmp come to mind.

Seriously doubt they will do that in the foreseeable future.


Well, the current ZuneHD uses flash memory, not a drive, and it's limited to 32GB. 120GB of flash memory would be so expensive, it would make the device far too expensive.

Additionally, all that I've seen on the new Win7 mobile indicates that the phone is basically a ZuneHD with telephone capabilities. So, it's more likely that the current ZuneHD is the last one they're going to make.

Only reason i have iTunes is because i need it for my iPod Touch..

Besides that, i steer well clear of it.
I haven't touched iTunes since. I think that's completely ridiculous, and quite frankly, harmful for the end user. iTunes didn't do this before, but I went a year or two without it before trying again, so I don't know when this started. I loved iTunes for its ability to batch convert audio files to a certain bitrate without losing any song info (ffmpeg, for example, lost all the info).

True, earlier version of iTunes never did this but i think my version was like 8.5 or something? Sometime between then and now the DRM was implemented... i assume..

You don't need a Zune to use the Zune Media Player...just saying.

My non-tech friendly GF has to literally pester me to update her iPod for months before I do it. iTunes and I have a hate/hate relationship.
