Journal: LUA and iTunes

Journal by sconeu

Even Apple, with the knowledge that comes from OS X, where people don't run as root/admin by default, has managed to screw up permissions in iTunes.

I bought my daughter an iPod Shuffle for her birthday. She's set up (under Win XP) as an ordinary non-admin user. She tried to change the CD rip format from AAC to MP3, and she got a permission error. I had to log in as admin, and change the default rip mode for her. She was then able to rip to MP3.

Even those who (should) know better screw up.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
