No need for the iPhone to get this forum started. Post your questions, findings, tips and everything related to iTunes in this section. Mac and PC users are welcome.

I am a PC user and have never even looked into I Tunes. Has anyone here used it? I would be interested in hearing how you like it and how it works? Thanks!

I don't use it, #1. I don't actually own an iPod but will in the future, and #2. I won't lie. I download music the old fashioned way, through decentralized networks :eek: . If I like songs enough I do buy the cd though.


But as for how iTunes works...

Users are able to organize their music into playlists, edit file information, record compact discs, copy files to a digital audio player, purchase music through its built-in music store, download podcasts, back up songs onto a CD or DVD, run a visualizer to display graphical effects in time to the music, and encode music into a number of different audio formats.

I am all about the PC and the new Mac commercials are liable to drive me to shoot someone if I have to keep hearing how good MACs are. I really have never found them to be all that good of a deal as they do not have the functionality that I need.

PC but that is just because I have always used a PC and do not know that much about MAC's. I really do not think that one is better than the other but I am not that computer savvy to begin with.

PC all the way, although i love Apple stuff:confused: , although i have heard that mac does not get as much viruses as the pc, because it was design for that.And a Mac includes USB drivers for mass storage, and you can even run windows, yes:D , and microsoft office! But i love my PC.

ibaby has a point, they are both negatives and positives towards the mac and the pc, but if I had to choose sorry , I am going to go with microsoft, thats what im really familiar with and used to but Apple does have some good stuff.

I had installed iTunes in my PC few months back. It's a fantastic product but I thought it is a bit net hungry. Always tries to connect to the net. I had that time bandwidth problem. So I had to remove it.
