It is pretty close, but I am going to go with iTunes being worse.
First off, I get a message in my email that the latest episode of my TV program is available to download. So I go to iTunes and say "check for available downloads". iTunes (the new number one most demented app on my computer) helpfully tells me that all my purchased items have all already been downloaded. Nothing new to download. So I look in my library, under TV shows. But it isn't there.
So then I have to try to find it somehow manually. I click on the iTunes store button (you know, the tiny, hard to find button hiding in the upper right of your screen where you have to search for it - I know where it is now but the first few times I used this app I was hunting all around for it). Then I search for my TV show. Then I have to figure out which of the titles it is showing me are the one I am supposed to download (I don't know which episode it is! I have other things to do in my life than memorize episode numbers or titles). Finally I find it (though sometimes I don't and I just give up). But it only offers me the option to buy it. I don't want to buy it because I ALREADY DID BUY IT. What the ****?
Oh! You have to remember to switch from HD to SD! Thanks for that Apple. Immediately obvious. Now the "buy" button turns into a "download" button. Ok, I click download and finally the thing starts to download.
Except that tonight, I wanted to watch it with my wife on her macbook air. No problem I thought. All I have to do is sign in as me on her computer. Except that I can't find the episode at all manually (because, of course, the stupid thing thinks there are no new episodes to download). I finally find what I *think* is the new episode and click "download". But now it is telling me that I have to wait 69 DAYS before downloading because the computer is associated with another account!
What? My wife and I cannot have our own iTunes accounts?
One of two things is happeing:
Either this is the most assinine application known to humanity (and whose only purpose is to get me to switch to Amazon after years of being more or less happy with iTunes)
I am doing something wrong in which case... this is the most assinine application known to humanity because it has become entirely and completely unintuitive.
I'm not, generally speaking, an idiot. I have developed software for a living and also managed a network of computers for several clients. I use computers all day long. But this new version of iTunes is so rediculous that I have just given up. Trying to find the movie you just rented takes a lot of searching for the right button located somewhere that I don't know. It refuses to download my season passes automatically. Searching the store for a particular season of a show is a nightmare. And now it wants to penalize my wife and me for having our own accounts.
I'm not really asking a question (except maybe to find out why I can't automatically download and why I can't watch my shows on my wife's machine) so much as I am just venting.
Now if you'll excuse me. After suffering through this iTorture I am eagerly looking forward to the dentist's drill.
