Please share the info, I'm pretty sure other people here live in (or near) Montreal.
And most of the steps are still required for other devices. iTunes is not more complicated than other solutions and integrates with Airport express devices, Apple TVs, allows sharing the library with other devices and controlling everything with your iDevice.
Some people prefer Android devices, I prefer the integration Apple offers. To each his own...
So that's where the company's name comes from...
Recording TV is not a typical scenario. Besides, at around 8GB/hour (HD), that's around 2000 hours a year, which is little more than what my BeyondTV machine does, and its 3TB WD green is still alive and kicking. You just have to disable the insanely aggressive head parking on those drives otherwise they might die...
Only 3 of my albums were bought on iTune, yet i've *never* had anything deleted in the 10 or so years I've used ipods and iphones.

They mostly were older consumer drives ranging from 20 to 320GB (still had dessicants and other nice stuff).
The big surprise was when I dismantled 15k fibrechannel drives. The engineering was pretty amazing (and the magnets are really kick ass)
You can fit a lot of savegames on a memory card. Besides, Cartridges and optical discs were better since games had to be more or less bug-free. Now with HDDs in consoles they are selling alpha material and patching afterwards.
In other words, people who grew up with consoles are still buying them...
PCSX2 requires a lot of horsepower for some games (ie: some of them are unplayable even with a Core2duo running at 3.8)
Not my experience (thus far).
I've had multiple 500-1TB drives fail (bad sectors and reallocations) in the last 4 years while my SSD (OCZ) is still kicking even if it spent half its life in a XP machine without any TRIM support. The spinning drives were Seagates and WD Greens.
Last summer I dismantled a whole bunch of HDDs for recycling, and you can see modern drives are cheaply built (no dessicant cartridge, less filtering and other stuff). That's the price to pay for the capacity race.
That's BS. I recently found many smaller USB keys and SD cards that haven't been used for at least 5 years, and they were all fine.
My mom has an android tablet and whenever we check what an app (mostly games) asks for, it's astounding. Why is a game asking for contacts, call logs (ok, in her case not a problem), and other info? some info like geolocation is fine (at the limit), but Google really should do a big cleanup.
Say what you will about iOS, but being more restrictive about what an app can fetch is not a bad thing.
"and now a grand jury who had ALL the facts"
ALL the facts given by police?
