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.

Palm needed to make their own sync tool. Instead of masqueraded as a device by spoofing an ID in the USB protocol. That is a DYI hacking approach and is not becoming of professional software development.

I tried many other MP3 players and they all sucked horribly before I got an ipod 3G (which still works). Eventually I moved to an iPhone 3G. It has worked extremely well for me for a couple of years now. It even syncs well with my corporate email. Droid is about the only thing that comes close to providing a strong alternative... and it is not there yet. Especially with Motorola locking Droid X up tighter than an iPhone.

I will agree that iTunes on windows feels awkward. It is much more natural on OSX.
