As excited as I am for this to be over (who’s havin’ a party?) I’m also pretty nervous, given the ridiculous shit presidents do with their last few months in office.

Why doesn’t iTunes use an image in the directory with the mp3 files? Every other player on the planet does.
Why does the search function not search in the file name? You can’t just add the mp3 download from “This American Life”, or it will get lost in the 20,000 other tracks you have.
I know the file name, but search doesn’t work. Before tagging:
Why can’t i remove something from the ipod directly from it’s playlist? I have 1,000 songs on the iPod. It’s a PITA to find a specific track in a list of 1,000 songs, but easy in the 10 track playlist. But can I remove it from the iPod from there? Oh no, you have find it in the 1,000 songs.
Why does the application pop up on top of everything else when I insert a CD or the iPod? That’s just plain annoying and distracting.
Oh, and it’s not much of a genius either. It thinks these songs would sound great alongside the Tool and NIN in my collection? Yep, Tool listeners all dig on Jason Mraz and Katy Perry.
I guess that goes along with “if it doesn’t exist for sale in the iStore it doesn’t exist” thing.
And why is it so goddamn slow?
This summer, Xcel Energy came through the neighborhood with their hired tree goons. Now it’s really our own fault for planting trees where we did, but still all I can say is “fuck you Xcel, you didn’t have to do that“.
They took the top 1/3 off the oak tree too, but at least it doesn’t look like the “don’t smoke kids” jaw cancer guy.
Xcel claims they’re “certified arborists”, but I seriously doubt that.
