    I hate them because our computer crashed once and my daughter lost over $500 in songs ( that she didn't back up )

    But they should make a way to re download them!

    I havent had an issue with iTunes. I also make sure to back up and do so often. Bet your daughter (or you) will back up from now on. Only takes that "one time" to show the true beauty that is backup.

    Sorry though.

    I actually have all my iTunes data on a different external drive. When I connect my backup drive, run a script to copy all the data from the main to the backup. This includes my iTunes library files on the PC. I use "SyncToy" from Microsoft to do the backup. Plug in the drives, run the app, a few minutes later, it is done and I am backed up again.

    If I make major changes, or get quite a bit of music or audio books or whatever, I will sync up in the middle of the month, but I have a reminder for the first sunday of the month to sync my iTunes. Granted, I also backup a number of other data directories as well.

    The three rules of computing are...

    Backup! Backup! Backup!

    So let me see if I am following this correctly.... your computer crashed, but you do have backup copies of all your daughter's music on your iPad and on a flash drive... and you hate iTunes because... ????

    Backups!!!
    You must allways have a backup. Best thing is to have your data in 3 places.

    #1 original
    #2 Backup to seperate device incase original dies
    #3 Off Site backup for if a disater happens like the house catch's on fire or a earthquake/tornado/hurricane comes the data is backed up to someplace else.


    I'm using a service called Live Drive (livedrive.com) it was like $180 for 5 years of unlimited online backup storage and unlimited number of computers I can backup. Everything is automaticly backed up and encrypted.

    I couldn't agree more!

    iTunes really needs to go on a diet. And if you are going to LOOK like a browser, ACT like one. You can't ever freakin' copy text from it, let alone have multiple "pages" open. It's a like a brain-dead one-page-only browser from 1996.

    Not amused about iTunes either :)

    I'd love to be able to sort apps by date, category, alphabet, price, etc.
    It's a pain in the (insert appropriate word here).
    And it's painfully slow on my home computer.
