Yup,what a load of complicated crap the Ipod and itunes is!I got an Ipod Touch for Chrimbo,and was forever asking my lad to sort it all out,one week i had what i wanted on it,then tried to add more,but it obliterated all of my first lot?You can shove your synching right where the sun don't shine as far as i am concerned,got a nice little Sandisk Sansa Clip now,just drag what tune i want into it's storage box,and Voila!!!I listen.I Tunes is overated IMO .I even have an on board Graphic Equalizer and superior sound,for a lot less than an Ipod cost's.:)
