    "Latest version so slow, it is broken."

    January 7, 2008  |   By Gyro_Bot

    Pros

    I love Apple.

    Cons

    The latest iTunes sartup time is so slow, I have to say it's broken. What is it doing for 5 minutes? checking to see if I have pirate music, each time I load up the program?

    You could call it "Software ego", where the software feels it needs to be so much more than you ever dreamed or wanted. Loading you down with it's self aggrandizing features, who's purpose is to steal your computer's vitality and the enjoyment of your computer experience. Similar to Windows Vista, for those "in the know". Actually, I guess Windows Vista is the perfect benchmark to compare to.

    I should just simply say "It's too much like Vista"
