Just go to apple.com and download iTunes. Your life will be brighter, your mp3s will magically be organized, your life will have a soundtrack, you'll just be happier. I swear, I promise, and no, I'm not an Apple affiliate, it's free anyway, you don't have to use the store, just use the program. It is AWESOME.
Go ahead, try it. I think it even makes you more attractive, just downloading it.
And then think, ALL the programs I use every day for my email and accounting and organization and word processing and photo organization are that nice. HA HA HA HA HA. I mean, uh... well, you know what I mean.
But seriously, it's a cool program and I urge anyone who likes to listen to music on their computer to give it a shot.

I recently had to uninstall QuickTime because it froze my machine every time I clicked a link to a QT file.
I've been using MusicMatch for years, and I think it does a decent job of organizing my files, but I guess I'll give this thing a try. I'll just set a restore point first... just in case this is really a sneak attack on the Windoids from the Mac-abees.

C'mon, what're you trying to pull?
You're SO mean to me.

Look, if you people would ADHERE to the STANDARDS, this problem would not HAPPEN.
I actually have it on pretty good speculation that one of Apple Inc's primary motivations behind making their iTunes software available for Windows is to make Quicktime and the .mp4 / .aac compressions more widely accepted. They both follow accepted industry standards, but Windows Media Player keeps actively ****ing them by adopting nonstandard formats and excluding the standard ones. Because Microsoft STILL thinks it can lock the major markets into their expensive proprietary formats.
I don't understand why a company so dominant does so many things that can only be explained away by spite. I mean... they have such a huge market share. They explicitly stated that they discontinued IE because of Safari-- they're actually feeling threatened by a company they actually subsidized (to escape more antitrust lawsuits), that has a 3% market share? Come ON. Titchy titchy.
And the fact that microsoft.com deliberately served broken stylesheets to Opera users...
and their anti-Switch ads used stock photographs and were written by copywriters...
I mean, come ON! Stop making things DIFFICULT! They don't HAVE to be! Windows is perfectly pleasant to use when it works! I only switched because I wanted to, not out of any spite!!
My mac treats me fine. Some webpages are poorly designed and don't work; I don't sweat, and take my business elsewhere. Computer's been up 15 days now. I rebooted when I upgraded the OS. I'll reboot again when I upgrade the OS again. Funny, it doesn't get slower the longer I leave it on; I have to reboot the PC at work every 18 hours of use or it becomes unusable. Haven't lost any files yet. Haven't got any viruses yet. Think it's shiny. Heh, don't wind me up when I've been drinking medicinally.

I remember that Mac-Win switch ad. That was a hoot. They got caught because Word throws so much information into a file that even if you think you're anonymous, pretty much anybody can tell who created a document and who edited it. Oops.

I could get it, but I don't want to. So I had a rant about Microsoft instead. More fun.

We’re bad-mouthing Apple because they’re not using WMA, and our goal is to establish a monopoly on digital media formats and rights management. You might think that the iPod and iTunes are in fact open, given that they work swimmingly well with MP3 files, but you would be wrong, because what we mean by “open” is “based on Microsoft’s propriety formats”. (In fact, we don’t even mention “MP3” in this entire “Q&A”.)

That is what Windows users love — being able to shop around and pick and choose the products and services that work best for them.
...by “love”, we mean “have grown to accept”.

That same guy posted a couple of really funny ones about how Outbreak -- err, Outlook -- is destroying the Internet.
Basically, his premise is that Outlook and Exchange are propping up oversized IT departments at the expense of anybody getting any real work done. And there was an entertaining analogy to plumbing.
