- Inserted white wire into USB port of computer
- Inserted other end in iPod
- Waited forever, iTunes booted up
- iTunes told us it wanted to install a new version + Quicktime
- We said "no thanks, not at this time, we just want to get on with it, thanks anyway"
- iTunes crashed as soon as it finished starting up
- Computer went bananas
- Rebooted computer
- Allowed iTunes to update 120 MB+, twiddled thumbs for almost 1 hour
- Switched on iPod
- Nothing happened
- *Removed white wire from iPod
- Inserted white wire in iPod
- Waited 5 minutes, iTunes showed iPod
- iTunes crashed
- Started again from *
- iTunes starts backup
- Waited 35 minutes for backup to finish
- iTunes informs us this iPod has not been attached to this computer before
- We remember having re´nstalled this computer a month ago
- We try to authorise iPod for this computer
- iTunes informs us we already authorised 5 computers
- Five minutes go by while we use nasty language
- Another 10 minutes go by searching the Internet how to deauthorize all computers
- We deauthorize all computers
- We authorize this computer
- iTunes tells us this iPod is not configured to use this computer
- We tell iTunes to transfer all purchases
- iTunes transfers all apps, 15 minutes go by while it copies them to the computer
- iTunes finishes transferring
- We go to the iPod settings, and select "Sync music"
- iTunes tells us this iPod is not configured to sync with this computer, would we like to delete all music that's on it
- We shout NO WAY!
- iTunes informs us that in that case, there is no way we can add new music, na na na na nooo nooo!
- We use rude language
- We decide to give in, ok, go ahead, delete the #$%#% music
- iTunes deletes music
- iTunes tells us it can't add all music to the iPod
- We tell iTunes to only add selected songs
- iTunes tells us it can't just select songs, or at least we are too dumb to know how
- We perform some black magic to add back the old tunes to iTunes
- We perform more black magic to add old tunes to iPod
- Ultimately, we manage to add NEW tunes to iPod
- Hubby faints when he realizes he wants to add some new videos as well.......

Sure the iPhone/iPod is fantastic... but let's not get started about the rest...

really? i love my ipod and my itunes? you using windows? its probably to blame.... at least partly

im an apple user/fanboy.... but i chose the nexusone over the iphone since it can do more.

the iphone still wins on simplicity and apps though. but overall android is for me... plus it gives people a choice on what phone to get (low end to high end).
