> Last time I used iTunes you had to import new music manually.

That is still the case, with the latest version. You have to manually tell iTunes to "Add a folder" or "Add a file". You cannot tell it to simply watch a folder for new stuff. For a music manager published in the year 2104 put out by a company that builds things that "Just Work" , that is astoundingly lame.

> If you check the little box that says "let iTunes manage my music library" it does

That does not work so well when working with a 2GB shuffle (which I use in the car, since it can be used without a display and instead uses a computerized voice).

It's bugs in dealing with podcasts REQUIRE me to manually manage them. It simply will not properly download the ones I want from the cloud automatically and I am forced to micromanage them.

I'm sure the technology behind the interface is teh ossim, but it's interface really is atrocious and is enough to compel me to seek products from other manufactures once my current devices die.

A punch can bring serious injury or death. It's serious business, and the law recognizes it as such.

If someone won't stop punching you, people who carry weapons can use them in their defense.

It's cute how you completely ignore that there are people who would 100% vote FOR a person because they were a woman and/or gay. Those on the left ADORE such people. I suspect the support FOR such a person is, these days, approaching the level of the bigotry AGAINST such a person so as to cancel each other out.

Similar is the harping on the left about the racism Obama overcame to become elected, completely ignoring the racism that worked FOR Obama, who achieved about 95% of the black vote. This put him over the top... most white people did not vote for Obama (feel free to look it up), it was the fact that black people voted as a block and almost exclusively for him that the man is now president.

> So, umm, what's your take on Obama openly ignoring the law...Why do I think it's not going to be, "Fuck Barack Obama"?

Why do I think you are a fucking retard who did not even bother to completely read what I said.

I said :

> He ignored my representative, therefore, he ignored ME by proxy. I didn't take kindly to such things then, and I don't take kindly when Obama does it now.
