Not that I would EVER procrastinate . . .

But . . . Can I just say that even though I desperately want a Mac laptop and some day expect to own one, I have a developed a deep and abiding hatred for Quick Time and iTunes for Windows. See, apparently, Apple doesn’t want you to have their QuickTime video player without iTunes. They bundle the two and they pester you if you manage to figure out how to get QT without iTunes. See, I don’t own an iPod. I have a regular old, much cheaper, mp3 player. I don’t need or want iTunes. But at least once a week Apple pops up an unsolicited message telling me I don’t have iTunes and don’t I want it? NO. Just f’n freaking NO. I can’t make it go away. I’m not allowed to tell Apple to leave me alone with the iTunes crap. Why isn’t that malware? Smells like malware. Acts like malware…

So, actually, there is a way to make it go away. I uninstalled QuickTime. Ah, the silence. It’s lovely. Go away Apple. Leave me alone. Hah. Now you have to. You don’t know about me anymore.

OK, back to work.
