Why does iTunes have to suck so loud?
To get to the crux of this question we have to travel back just a bit:
Back in November I picked out 2 MP3 players and put them on Megan's Amazon Wishlist. The shiny new 8GB Ipod 4th Generation Nano in a gorgeous purple
and the more economical but almost equally as nice Sony 4GB Walkman Video/MP3 player in a pretty pink
. Megan wanted that iPod, but I gave the grandparents options and she would be cool either way. So she got the Walkman, and it's great. Honestly it is fantastic. Even better than it being more in the price range of what I think she needs at this age - it also is very Cindy friendly. Which is of course uber-important.
You plug it into your computer. It loads itself. You drag and drop songs, albums, pictures, videos - heck, whatever you want without any other needed software into the the pre-layed out folders in the MP3 player. Then when you turn the thing on, you go into 'Music' and there are your albums and songs all in the nice little packages you dropped them in. Neat. Then you go into 'Pictures' and see your sub-albums you already created there with all your pictures neatly arranged just like they were on your computer. Same thing with the videos too. Sounds awesome doesn't it?
If you are just having your first experience with an iPod or iTunes I bet you really think that sounds super swell. How do I know? Well, Megan's first cousin Summer (on my ex's side - her and Megan are 4 months apart and best friends) got the exact iPod Nano Megan wanted for Christmas. So they call me Sunday from the grandparents house and ask me if I could load some songs onto Summer's iPod she got for Christmas because her mom couldn't figure it out. No sweat. I'm super-duper computer girl don't you know? Plus I'm awesome at life. So I say "Absolutely! It will be a snap just like Megan's!" ( I was so very naive. And wrong. So very, very wrong.Collapse )
