** The Top Ten Reasons iTunes Sucks **

By Scott Gilbertson

itunes sucks

itunes sucksITunes sucks. There, we said it. Apple’s once very handy
jukebox and music library manager has morphed into an unusable piece of
crap that’s not even an app anymore, it’s just a kiosk for the iTunes

We’ve got nothing against most Apple products. We like OS X, so much in
fact that we hacked it onto an EeePC, where it works smashingly well or at
least well enough until Apple joins the netbook market.

result of this single fact: iTunes is not an application in the traditional
sense, it’s a storefront for Apple to sell music, movies and more.

except when it gets in the way of other features. Unfortunately, it
increasingly seems to be doing just that
