    Takes upwards of 30 seconds to start up iTunes sometimes if the iPod is plugged in, hogs an assload of resources whenever you are downloading a "podcast" :ugh2:...because downloading a 30 MB MP3 file really should require 70% of your CPU

    Apple's software has really taken a dive while they've been focusing on their other shit

    more likely something on your system is causing an issue with itunes.. reinstall it completely, do some hunting etc..

    ps. works fast & problem free on all of my computers.

    The only complaint I had with iTunes was that it wasn't adding a few thousand of my MP3s. Fortunately I found a fix for them using foobar for the PC.

    That happened to me when I would sync my iTunes to my iPod. I did a hard reset to my iPod, wiped it clean, and then re-installed all my iTunes music and it was all good.

    iTunes is pretty damn shitty at some tasks like Group ID3 tag editing, or changing the ID3 on an hour long track takes like 30 seconds (WTF, how should it take any longer than a 10 second track?).

    But i still enjoy it.
