This is a question Pet Peeves

What makes you angry? Get it off your chest so we can laugh at your impotent rage.

iPods and iTunes.

I had a Creative, it hated me and decided crashing was fun until eventually 5 months after I got it it stopped working completely.

I got a second Creative, that started fucking up after I had it for a week. Less then a month later I took it back to exchange it for something else. I was told the best thing to get was an ipod. Now, I've always had a hatred for the little buggers hence never having had one before so I did feel quite dirty getting one. Now, after actually using an ipod for 3 or 4 months now I can safetly say. I hate the stupid piece of donkey spunk, the sound level is much lower then any other mp3 player I've had (please note, I turn my music right down when I'm on public transport if I use it at all) the wheel thing is a fucking piece of wank, honestly for some reason it always seems to skip about when I'm trying to select something and now onto ITunes....

Why, oh why, do Apple INSIST I use ITunes to put music on to MY ipod? Do I not get a choice on what media player I use anymore? I wouldn't mind but ITunes is the most infuriating thing since something that made me really fucking angry. It took me 4 fucking hours to convert all my music and then put the songs I wanted on to my ipod only for it then to delete it all when I tried to add another song. Yes I was being thick but I wouldn't have had that problem if I could have used the media player I WANTED TO.

Sorry for excessive use of the word fuck.

Haha, I had the itunes problem as a Linux user
Try some things like Floola, Winamp (it has ipod support now) and GTKpod, which'll put pictures over too. Floola is the best if you want album art, but you have to put it in manually. The key is deleting 'itunes lock' from the folder when you mount your ipod.

I use Amarok, which works a fucking dream, but as it's a new iPod I can't transfer pictures yet.

Me and my ex got 2 Creatives
They both died within a month (dead headphone socket and knackered firmware). We got 2 warranty replacements. One had a crashed hdd, the other had its control panel die.

Fuck creative and their useless shit.

My brother got an iPod, lasted a month before the HDD went.

atm I have a Sony. The software is shit, worse than Itunes, but I've had it 18 months and it still works, which is more than I can say about anything else I've had. But replace the headphones that come with it with something decent, the Sony ones are wank.

I don't think I've ever dispensed consumer advice with quite so much swearing, but fuck it.
