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 Tongue).
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
If the Americans chose to be different....that's their problem Tongue

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.

Re: Anybody like an Apple?

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.
