Apple's trademark is "styled incompatibility".

It is a sly means by which they create dependence on their software and to lockout competition.

People give Microsoft a hard time for some of their overt schemes, but they don't hold a candle to Apple.

"Drag and drop" would alleviate the need for iTunes, and thereforee cut into the means by which Apple is going to make you beholden to their store.

It is the same philosophy that governs Apple's war on third party support for the iPhone.

If someone were to implement a drag and drop solution for your phone, rest assured that you would be subsequently and quickly welcomed into the world of Bricked iPhones.

Welcome to the Apple family.

Maybe you'd be happier living in a communist country? Think about it.

Askewed,

Nah, I just have not partaken of the Kool-aid as you may have done. Obviously you are an Apple apologist.

I think in free countries, you are permitted to do as you wish to your own property. I bought the iPhone itself, not a license. Nobody should have the right to brick a phone because the owner chooses to install third party software. I think you have communism confused and backwards.

But if it makes you feel better to be offended by my post that you have to respond with a personal attack, I have no quarrel.

You see, it took me a while, but I now completely understand that Apple fans are very sensitive and easily offended and will take issue with almost anything that may seem to make Apple not shine.

I'm not offend at all. And I'm not ignorant to your point of view. But you aren't willing to give any of the respect to the company that your are demanding for yourself. It sounds like to me that you'd be happier living in a place where companies aren't trying to make a profit, get and keep a foot-hold on the market, answer to stockholders and so on.

What you're calling being an "apologist" is nothing more then me seeing both sides.

[hijack]by the way, communism is an economic strategy, not a political or governmental one. But since it pretty much sucks, it requires a communist government to use dictatorial tactics that suppress freedom. Oh, and there are I think only 2 communist countries in the history of mankind, Cuba and I think China. All of the other ones are socialist, even the USSR. Funny, most of the world is in fact socialist, including western Europe. And we called the Russians our enemy just because of communism. What a load of $:mad:&. That was a strawman if I've ever seen one.

Actually, companies in countries like the one you are talking about tend to adopt the tactics if their government. The people in countries luke that are taught from birth the propaganda of how freedom allows people to screw things up. Take ArchiCAD for example. Company is in Budapest, Hungary, a socialist country. I'm sure the nation is freeer since the fall of the soviet union started shifting the sicialist world towards freedom and democracy, but Gravisoft still maintains a stranglehold on ArchiCAD, just like Apple does on its devices. How Apple got startted in a free country by hackers I'll never understand.

You'll probably have to do what I had to do SINCE Apple never put in a Uncheck/check all option... Uncheck the little boxes next to the songs, any song that has a check mark next to it will be sent to your iPhone. I also strongly advise in the options in iTunes to set it NOT to auto sync with your iPhone, so that it doesn't sync as soon as you plug it in. But you will need to hit Sync in the iPhone status section when you plug it in. Hope this helps ya out some, it's a pain at first, but makes it a lot easier once you get everything unchecked.

Just a little perplexed why the sycophants insist that we we should all be so grateful that Apple progressed beyond the Newton, and that we should be satisfied as though every new product is perfection redefined.

Apple has created, in the iPhone, some fantastic new innovations. I really like my iPhone, but remain extremely disappointed that they purposefully left out functionality that is ordinarily to be expected in any worthwhile PDA.

Apple wasted an incredible opportunity to make the ipaq, and all pocket pc's all but obsolete. Instead they catered specifically to Apple and ipod fanatics that are just so easily satisfied with aggregate mediocrity as long as it has the Apple logo. To merely suggest that that Apple adopt ordinary features that we have enjoyed on other products for years is liken to insulting their religion.

Ok, they didn't need to make notes import/export friendly, or make the Bluetooth 21st century compliant, or the browser able to download files,... but to make it functionally impossible to have third parties make such things possible is the epitome of arrogant idiocy. If that is capitalism, to leave the consumer begging for tiny incremental tidbits by spending more money, then they have succeeded. Apple sycophants are so easily led, and satiated, and just as easily offended.
