"A new update is ready for your iPhone (4). Would you like to update?"

Yes. *click*

"This update is available, but requires iTunes 9.2 to run. Would you like to download?"

Not particularly, but OK, I'll humour you. *click*

"This 374M download will install iTunes 9.2 on your system, a music player that does no more than WinAmp does with a 7M download. Oh, and we'd also like to just go ahead and install Safari on your FireFox PC. We're not asking, it's just ticked, see? So we're gonna do that."

Um, not feeling so chirpy about that. Please don't. Where's the don't ask me again button to get rid of that, anyway?

"Sorry, we at Apple don't like to ever give you THAT option! Shucks!"


"...and go make another coffee. This download's gonna take a whiiile!"

So I see. This better be worth the wait How are you all finding it?


"Ding! Hey, guess what? I'm done! But now I wanna restart your computer on you. I'm still feeling miffed you rejected my Safari components, so I've installed another little surprise. You'll love it. When I restart your system there will be this.. oh, I don't want to spoil the surprise. This is great! We'll have some laughs. Do you want to continue?"

...what do I do

On another note, it's conceivable I've been playing too much Portal. Excited much?

edit 2:

...Oh you're freaking kidding me! iTunes finished its 500M+ download of the new OS, then the installer 'crashed' with the message "The download timed out. Please try again later". And now it has started the download all over again!

Why do people like Apple?

    Tilce, the humour here was actually that this all really happened. True story.

    Oh I believe it happened. I own and have to lug around *sadly* TWO iphones. Do I like the iphone itself, well, yes - but do I like Apple, iTunes etc - NO! iTunes sucks and freezes my PC more often than it actually bloody works!

    This just sums up my entire feeling about Apple/Macs in general. God I love this video - thank you for reminding me to watch it again: YouTube - MAC HATE
