Yep, it sucks. The only thing that really bugs me though is that it's so stupid at file management. Even "consolidate" doesn't work reliably. How hard can it be? Apple has aped MS' attitude: "you're too stupid to locate your own files, so we'll do it for you."

Not to mention, they force you to install QTime, which takes over all multimedia extensions (video/music). Then again, same is true with pretty much every other piece of software today. There's no longer a respect for people's personal computers (and I don't mean "PC's", per se, so don't start another PC vs MAC discussion here). Every developer's goal today seems to be to take control of your computer (or device) and use it as an up selling platform. On the other hand, they assume everyone out there is an idiot, incapable of creating a shortcut or associating a file extension by themselves. They bloat their apps so much, that the end-use experience shoots in the complete opposite direction the intend.

iTunes reminds me of the old Cobal programming days --- where everything is big and bloated. It is a dog (especially on the win platform). Got a really really old iMac, it's not even supposed to work on it. But is is faster on that iMac than my new fast XP with 100X memory and processing speed. Hmmmm. That's Apples REAL plan. Force their platform..

"Simple is better". Why a simple file manager between to computers (that is really all we need) can evolve into iTunes, is one of the worlds biggest mysteries. I hate using this product, as it totally lacks transparency, and moving a file or connecting a device sometimes sets off a totally unpredictable chain reaction.

this is by far the WORST list ever. wth are they talking about? the only valid points he makes is that its a memory hog and it can be slow at times.
