I am having a horrible day using Mac Products and iTunes.

 

I wish, oh wish that at the beginning of ever using Macs and iTunes there had been massive red caps saying "DO NOT USE ANY OF THIS UNTIL YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING" followed by a clear and succinct set of warnings about how Apple IDs work and are associated with devices etc.

 

I have had various problems with that today. 

 

Now, the latest is that I have changed my Apple ID in settings for "Account" on my iPhone 4.  Then, when I went to update aps, it asked me for my password for my Old Apple ID, even though I can confirm that the Apple ID in my settings is the new one that I want!!!

 

Why!!!!

    Anything Downloaded with a Particular Apple ID is tied to that Apple ID and Cannot be Merged or Transferred to a Different Apple ID

    it is just that I think that they should be really explicit about must read information for first time useers so that they know not to barge in and download stuff without paying attention to how they are logged in and what rights they get to download to what devices

    Kind of like the big red warning labels they put on cars that say, "Do NOT try to drive this vehicle until you have had some driver education!?
