So this morning, not unlike every other morning, I set upon the tedious task of getting my computer ready for the day. I opened the seemingly endless files for the various tasks that need to be sent out or looked over. So the last thing I do is open up iTunes so I can listen to some tunes off my iPod while I work. So today, all my songs are greyed out. I eject and start again. No go. So then I think that maybe the songs have gone and unauthorized themselves, so I play a purchased song through the headphones, well, that’s OK, at least it’s not THAT again. So what’s the deal? There’s an update? Oh, OK. Download update. Computer slows to a crawl. Not wanting to deal with not being able to do anything and getting frustrated, I went for a bagel. By the time I’d gotten back, the frustration could end, and I could work again, I went to play the tunes, still, I can’t. The update still needs to be downloaded, apparently it threw an error. Download again. Computer slows to a crawl, operating at 99% CPU. BAH! So now I’ve wasted all this time this morning and I still don’t have music. I don’t like Apple again. No download should throw my computer into a useless tailspin for 20 minutes while it’s slowly downloading some crappy update. This is just stupid.
