iTunes, also known as the new RealPlayer or Quicktime 2: Electric Boogaloo, iTunes is what makes all the Mac fanbois cream their panties at night. Originally made when Apple assraped the makers of the better mac mp3 player: SoundJam MP. Able to play all their Gorillaz, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Linkin Park, and My Chemical Romance songs, it's no wonder why every art student and emo kid has this as their main music player. Plus, now that iTunes has Final Fantasy music for you to download (only $0.99 or £00.79 for the 30 second 8-bit opening of Final Fantasy II OMG), every basement dweller on the block will be selling that one-way bus ticket their mom bought them to go visit the 13 year old boy they met online for some great tunez!11! A new version of iTunes is released every second, because the people over at Apple just can't get anything right. And when they do, here comes the next generation of iPods! Lulz!
Even though some Faggot at Apples says that he hates DRM, he doesn't. The reason he doesn't is because when someone buys some music off itunes and then a year later his or her ipod breaks, because it is made of pure shit, when he or she goes to buy another mp3 player and plugs it in to the computer, he or she can no longer use any of his or her music that they bought off Itunes. So the logical thing to do is to return the higher quality competitor mp3 player and to go buy another ipod. Thus, Apple becomes a rich Jew who jews you into continually buying their new product. They make money and you get fucked. This is one of two reasons why anyone who can think logically doesn't like Apple. Do the world a favor and don't support this bullshit, download for free or buy off of amazon mp3 which sells DRM free files only.
(Psssst: Apple lets you burn your playlists to CD minus DRM. You can then rip them back in DRM-free MP3s. THERE GOES THE SYSTEM!!!!)
With the release of the new video iPod, iTunes lets you download Golden Girls and That's So Raven, plus you get Madonna music videos! Unfortunately, they don't have pr0n available yet :(. But if you're like this winner right here, you'll find a way to get your smut onto your iPod.
Installation and Maintenance
In keeping of Apple software tradition, every year iTunes becomes obsolete and no longer works. Remedy: Reinstall (1 hr), and if using a Windows computer, prepare for a Dramapocalypse. Sautee. Serves 6-10 (or two, if you're fat. (You are.) )
