I make it a point, in my daily web browsing, to check out certain online communities that I consider to be educational. This includes places where people talk about art and culture, the news, and society. I often check in with various sites, blogs and communities that focus on feminism and women’s issues, as these interest me.
Unfortunately, I’ve found that I feel extremely uncomfortable in these places.
iTunes 9. What can I say? You suck. That’s about it. Updating my iPod has become a nightmare of an experience because of you, fraught with anger and that little spinning rainbow circle of doom that represents my computer saying, “Hey, hold on, there’s just too much going on right now.” I have a healthy musical diet, and iTunes 9 is starving me right now, AND it’s probably giving me an ulcer. Yeah, I’ve tried to go on Apple’s sorry excuse for a support site. The message boards are full of people who are having the same problems as I am, and NO ONE KNOWS WHAT TO DO. There are no answers. And now I can’t burn CDs… which, admittedly might be (probably is) a problem with my CD drive or something. But, I’ve only had problems with it since I was FORCED to download the travesty that is iTunes 9. Yes, forced. My sister was trying to put videos on her iPod and couldn’t do it unless she upgraded (pshaw – downgraded is more like it) to iTunes 9, so she did. AND I WILL NEVER FORGIVE HER. Just kidding (but I’m certainly not happy).
So, Apple. I beseech you to fix this glitchy piece of crap called iTunes 9. Seriously. Was it forged in the pits of hell or something? I’m about to rip my hair out and then I’m going to make you pay my medical bills when I have to have it surgically replaced. I’m sure you’ll heed my advice. I like you, I really do, but this is putting a serious strain on our relationship. You don’t want that, now do you?
