Re: Anybody like an Apple?

I totally agree with him about that infernal Itunes (there I've even put the capital in the right place :P).
I've lost no end of stuff when I've 'synced' my iphone with a new pc having first and reluctantly installed Itunes. Angry
On all my other phones it was simple drag and drop Cool

@Pierré Pierré When I went to school I was taught that proper names started with a capital letter like Peter. Wink

Re: Anybody like an Apple?

It's Braeburns and iPod for me  Wink  iTunes is a necessary evil. I also don't like the way they want the capital letter to go here; do they consider the 'i' to not be part of the name but to be a .....oh I don't know, a sort of pre-segment (really sorry for that but couldn't think how else to describe it)

Re: Anybody like an Apple?

My iPhone was mine as a result of a company mobile upgrade.
The person responsible for the mobile phones decided I needed one as someone with a 'technical' position on the company......I was the IT Manager...how wrong could he be Roll_eyes
Anyway I kept it when I left and to date haven't bothered to replace it as it still works.

I don't think anyone wanting to get subscriptions from iJobs at the moment want's an apple.
From Charlies article:
iTunes – a hideous binary turd
That is quite hilarious and rather apt.
