good riddance. 151511515
I used it for a while. It was quite good,but the Ipod I had broke. Some time later my father and stepmother bought me a very small one which I never used as I couldn’t make heads or tails of it.
People are using other platforms to stream and purchase music, like bandcamp and spotify.
I don’t use iTunes 155544
Clunky, obnoxious, resource hog, it is. Please let this be true. My wife uses this to manager her regular music, and I’ve unsuccessfully been trying to pry her off of it for 10 years now. Whenever her computer runs a bit choppy, it’s the first background process I kill. Almost always does the trick. And with its updates forcing a restart, gah!
What does that mean for all my songs?
Also I have to mention, on my old Ipod classic I had a ton of songs from old peer to peer programs like Limewire and Kazaa, including some irreplacable live recordings, and when I sync’d them with itunes on my mac it deleted 90 percent of my songs that weren’t purchased from itunes. The only songs that survived for some reason were my Ben Folds songs. I was super pissed.
I liked iTunes when I was in college and living in the dorms because they had that nearby libraries feature where you could listen to other people’s music. It was awesome in the dorms because you could listen to hundreds of libraries. But after I moved out I never used it again.
I had Limewire for a while. I downloaded loads of songs onto an external hard drive. I lost them all when that hard drive went kaput.
That reminds me of when the voices told me to throw out my external terabyte hard drive and I complied. Sooooo much stuff gone… and I don’t use peer to peer anymore so I can’t get it back.
I used Last.fm for quite a few years until they insisted on keeping on tinkering with it, and turned it into a pile of crap.
