ITUNES IS A PEICE OF DONKEY S#!T!
I mean - why isn't this a huge negative in all reviews of the ipod? I'm sure the software works fine - but comon - only able to sync with one computer - Renaming the mp3s to some weird ass 4 letter dealios? And who the hell in their right mind would buy music off itunes if you can only use it on an ipod.
Smart on Steve Jobs for making it nearly impossible to switch when you do decide to go ipod.
Umm Im pretty sure even with the more advanced limitation, iTunes works great for most. I use it and think it works great. It keeps a library nice and organized. I dont see any other software that is SO MUCH MORE AMAZING, maybe they have a couple more advanved features here and there, but... And you can sync all iPod besides Shuffles to more than one computer, just pick Manually Manage songs. 4 letters for MP3? Im unsure what you are talking about? And they now have iTunes plus, which is a non-drm version of songs in higher quality so that you can put it on whatever you would like.
Now ass for AAC not being such a commonly used format I do agree. I have come across this limitations when trying to find an alternative player, but I am also limited that I am on a mac. So.... Ive only found a couple players that can play AAC and sync with Mac. Oh and those definetely don't match the slimness of Apple's 80gb. So thats a problem for me... I like slim.
