So I got some iTunes gift cards for christmas. What a nightmare this shit is. I bought 6 songs, one of which I actually got what I wanted. iTunes was a total bitch to sign up, allow me to gauge my interest and my urge to just steal the shit: First off, I'm not embarassed: These are the songs I wanted: Slow - Kylie Minogue Push the Button - Sugababes Strict Machine - Goldfrapp Give Up - Aimee Mann Feeling the Night - Kaskade A little background of the songs that I found: Slow is a really good song. That said, it's not on iTunes in it's album version. The only version I found was on the "Out loud and proud: Gay Pride" album. I'm not shitting you. Give up is only found on the Magnolia Soundtrack. This wasn't on iTunes for that, it was found in two live versions, that surprisingly mix well. One is acapella and the other is just "live", but it sounds studio produced, so I'm happy. I bought them both. There are about 100 different mixes of Feeling the night, the 10 second sample that they provided all sounded the same. I did about 2 hours of research to get this one song. It was the wrong song. So $6 dollars and 3 hours later, I have 5 songs. I'm REALLY liking stolen MP3s at this point. I sign up for the service. They want a credit card, they aren't getting one. No way. Apple can't be trusted with a credit card. So after about 30 minutes of fumbling around, I found out how I can register without actually signing up, and I could use the gift card. I'm at 10% legit, and 90% illegit. Fuck this service. I grab a few of the songs, and I realise that there are several ways to get an MP3, one of which promises an open licence where I can hold as many as I want. That's Strict Machine, Give up and Feeling the night. Same cost. I bring it into iTunes and am impressed with the quality. No guess work, no downloading several files to get one good one. I have a guaranteed bitrate and the world is good. So I attempt to sync my Helio to iTunes. iTunes says "no" because it's not a fucking iPod. Kiss my iAss, I'm moving them to wmp11, assholes. Denied. I'm now at 1% legit and 99% illegit. So now I have 3 songs on my phone for $6 and about 3 hours work. The method to get the other songs on my phone ? Burn a CD, then rip them in WMP and then sync to my phone. After I spend the rest of my cards on Richard Cheese songs, you bet your ass I'm back to stealing music.
