So I’ve been avoiding iTunes for at least 5 years, simply because I was unwilling to relinquish control of my music. After recent issues with winamp’s support of my old iPod nano I finally decided to download the latest itunes and give it another whirl. I know I should have simply bought a non-apple mp3 player but this one was a gift and until it dies I’m going to keep using it. So far so good, my iPod has been behaving well and iTunes hasn’t been too annoying. As a nice bonus our new house has a central speaker system that I have the airport jacked into, so we can play our music from iTunes wirelessly to the house.
One side of me hates supporting the man and giving up control of my music but the other side is tired of constantly organizing and dealing with ripping CDs. iTunes is definitely a one stop shop for importing and managing my music. Damn you Apple!
