Today, the toxic waste of success cripples iTunes. There are times when I feel that iTunes has reached Windows Vista bloatware proportions: Increasingly non-sensical complexity, inconsistencies, layers of patches over layers of patches ending up in a structure so labyrinthine no individual can internalize it any longer. (Just like the Tax Code.)
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and by far iTunes is the one app on my Mac that I do two things with:
- Dread using.
- Actively block websites from opening.
Something needs to change.
