Who knows. Could be different, since I'm using Mac OS to sync with my iPhone. Not sure how Windows handles it, but I know Address Book and iCal work perfectly in conjunction with my phone.

In all honestly, iPhone OS has really separated itself from the competition. When it first came out, its operating system really caught people off guard, with the exception of RIM.

i think Itunes runs a lot smoother on Mac's themselves. I have a Macbook with itunes, and it runs without any problems etc. but once i have it running on my XP computer, i notice in the task manager it runs a few services of its own, and i get a lot more glitches and shit.

iTunes is like that bitch in high school that puts on a TON of makeup to try to impress all of the boys, covering up what's truly inside... a MONSTER

If I remember correctly, I think our high school bitch even had a restore to factory settings option. I usually pressed it after we synced. If y'know what I mean.

Lol. That is the greatest metaphor for iTunes I've ever seen.

Default Re: iTunes deserves a beating

I only have iTunes for two reasons:
1) My brother and sister have an iPod
2) I like listening to the dance/electronic radio stations every now and then..

Other than that..I don't like iTunes. P2P/Torrents ftw!

To be honest the Zune software isn't bad. It uses a bit of resources, but it's a really stable and smooth media player now. It's nice how Microsoft rebuilt it from scratch after the dismal failure that was the previous Zune software which was essentially Windows Media Player 11 with some makeup on.

That's what Pandora is for.
