Currently Being ModeratedSep 28, 2009 5:55 PM (in response to botr)Yes, yes, yes... Please. Why ON EARTH integrate media, phone sync, music store and app store into one crazy program? Hmm, sounds like business talk to me... Doesn't make any real sense for the end user. Not for me, anyway.Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 1.83DualCore (2GbRAM)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2009 6:02 AM (in response to William Brawley)I'm totally outraged.
To think that apple is the new windows.
Before I was telling everyone I knew that mac was the way to go,
now I'm not so sure anymore.
Shame on Apple!
Please fix this and don't move towards a limited OS.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2009 6:28 AM (in response to Wirde)Couple this with the awful Mail password problems and I'm sad to say you're right...never thought I'd say that Apple are rapidly becoming like Microsoft.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2009 1:13 PM (in response to William Brawley)Yes, this is very annoying and needs to be fixed.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 30, 2009 2:09 AM (in response to William Brawley)Congratulation Apple !
You just forced me to make iTunes unlaunchable...
And by the way, did you know that in french, "tunes" is a slang word for "money"... Everything become clear to me now...MBP 17", Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 30, 2009 9:02 AM (in response to William Brawley)Apple, please release a fix for this it's annoying and exactly the sort of feature that made me move from Windows.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 3, 2009 8:47 AM (in response to William Brawley)Apple, please fix this! Can't use my Plex anymore since I upgraded to Snow Leopard..
Such a feature is simply a shame and downgrades Apple to the level of Microsoft..
Come on!iMac 24, Mac OS X (10.6.1)

Currently Being ModeratedOct 6, 2009 11:01 PM (in response to fletcho)I too agree. i JUST made the switch to apple because i wanted to get out from under the microsoft machine. but you know what i can do with windows.... i can use my god **** remote anyway i feel like. I bought a $20 apple remote to control MY media MY way, not some iTunes fisher-price BS remote.
Congratulations Apple, i am about one month away from toasting my OSX install on my mini and installing windows 7. My mini is supposed to me my media center PC, but its not doing much of anything now that i can't control it without a keyboard an mouse. looks like Dell is gonna get my money next time i am shopping for a computer.
(p.s. apple, something like this REALLY needs to be in the release notes for your OS. i wouldn't have upgraded if i knew this was gonna break)MacMini, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 7, 2009 11:51 AM (in response to pretty good, but not great)This worked for me...
* drag itunes out of your application folder into somewhere where you've got write access
* open it up and open Contents/Info.plist.
* change the line that says "bundle identifier" from com.apple.iTunes to read com.apple.screwyou or something equally as thoughtful.
* drag it back into Applications
* log out and back in
If you update itunes it will overwrite info.plist so you have to do it all over again.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 7, 2009 7:56 PM (in response to rshankland)The problem with that solution is that it totally disables remote control in iTunes, which kinda *****. The best so far is changing the executable for a script that checks if certain applications are open and prevents iTunes from launching if they are.Macbook 2.0GHz, 2gb ram, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 3:22 AM (in response to Lord Kamina)I don't use iTunes apart from syncing/backing up my iphone. I find iTunes a pile of crap so don't use it. My main music player is Spotify which I have on the iPhone as well so this worked for me and still let me sync with iTunes when needed.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 8:36 AM (in response to rshankland)This fix is easy and works great.
Regarding the iPhone issue. The only reason I have iTunes on my computer is because I have an iPhone. Something is so terribly wrong with that statement. Apple has gotten away with merging a player, the music store, movie rentals, phone apps and phone syncing with one application. Not only does this make the software cumbersome, sluggish, and filling your updates with 50-60MB updates on nearly a weekly basis. Updates for iTunes that fix ringtone issues? RUKiddingMe?
Pulling stunts like this, Apple, is going to get you in trouble. Your fanboys are going to start to realize how much they are sucking off your motherboard. Worse yet, regulators are going to see that your merging of unrelated hardware and software combined with the forced use of it is grounds for a serious investigation into your practices.
The fact you won't allow FLAC playback, the fact you won't allow me to control my keyboard shortcuts, show your grasp on the market is slipping, and you're scared, and you're handling it wrong. OPEN UP your hearts and some of your apps and your iPhone carrier network and you'll find a much happier, fulfilling road ahead. Let your innovation lead you to riches, not controlling the masses.
