Apple "By now, most iTunes users have already downloaded and installed iTunes 10. We've already given you the low-down on the biggest addition to the new version of iTunes - the Ping social network - but we also wanted to give our impressions on two 'improvements' promised in the release notes: look-and-feel and performance. While we agree that iTunes is 'faster and more responsive', we're not sold on the revised user interface." Vertical window titlebar widgets? Can't we just take this thing 'round back and put a bullet between its eyes? We'd be doing everyone a favour.

Let me see if I have the logic correct:

Product X by company Y, which nobody is forcing me to use and is free, does not do exactly what I want because for some reason company Y doesn't bother to read my mind. Ergo company Y must be a monopoly.

I am not saying all these huge mega corporations don't use douche moves to achieve huge market shares. I am just saying that throwing the "monopoly" term around sort of diminishes the validity of some of the grievances.

If you don't like OSX, use windows or linux or BSD or whatever (and vice versa). If you don't like iTunes, use Win Media player or some of the free alternatives. If you don't like the iPod use a different mobile player.

What if you don't like the crapware Apple installs using their /update/ tool, but like iTunes?
