Rayfield In response to Malcolm J. Rayfield here's a problem for Apple to solve If they even care I have 3 ipods. I use itunes to update, sync and sort all of them, without any problems what so ever. I had to do a full reset on one of the 5's. So, we the customers, have no way of using our devices that are only a few years old!
Not to mention what they will come up with next! We almost went Andriod when they tried to replace our Music with theirs last time! Fortunately the customers made themselves heard, and I hope they do so agian! I reset my ipod 5 2. I synced it to itunes on my Macbook and got everything back. I used to enjoy Angry Birds, until they went super greedy and ruined the game see the reviews.
All I had to do was replace the new version with the older ones and I was up and running with out the ads, coin costs and crashes. Whether we like them or not! Forcing us customers, who are fast losing trust in apple, to accept what is offered us and be happy with just that. As for the music, books and ringtones, it's the same. All Apple has done is to make it difficult for us to create our home-made or custom music, custom albums , custom ringtones and books, and get them onto our devices so easily.
They want us to feel that it's easier and less hassle to just shut up and download THEIR music, their tones and their books. And then decide to store it all on Their iCloud servers. Leaving us all forced to stay with Apple and pay their pricing, and of course, with no way out! This is NOT "out of the box thinking", it is simply telling us, the paying customer "you will take what we give you, and you will like it, or else"!
Isn't that why most of us left Microsoft?? So, I will be staying with the itunes, ios and MacOS I have for a long time to come, and they can keep the pretty bells and whistles, while they ruin the enjoyment for us all!
You would think you would have learned a lesson from the last iTunes fiasco! Many are getting less and less happy with you
