Hello, I have had an iPad for just over a year. It is my first and thus far only Apple device. The last year has been a journey of mixed feelings in regards to Apple. I work graveyard shift, and I liked the iPad to read on, because it has it's own light source and really liked the possibilities it promised. I really like my iPad. I really hate iTunes. I really like the podcasts, apps, etc that are present. I really hate the hipsterism of the Apple fans, and Chinese-like centralization and control that Apple forces on me. Sorry to offend, if I did indeed offend anybody. I like Apple enough to decide I wanted to get an iPod touch, since I changed positions at work and want something to stick in my pocket, instead of haul around, but I waited until I successfully updated the iOs of my ipad and updated iTunes. They no longer work correctly, so I am holding off on giving Apple anymore money. Help me see the golden light of Apple goodness.
