Molly, I have problems with iTunes too!

by GL2filmer / May 16, 2006 1:33 AM PDT

I switched from iPodder to iTunes when I bought my iPod. (Too many little "i"s in that sentence.) The only thing I like about iTunes better than iPodder is that it designates which files you have already listened to. This is important when all you listen to is podcasts and the podcasters only change the date or episode number in the name of their podcast. (I understand why you do that, it just doesn't make them stand out amongst each other enough.)

Anyway, I have found that iTunes does not start the first time I click on it. I always have to ask it to open twice. Then the screen does not refresh well. If I tab away ('cause I lurves me some Alt+Tab) while a podcast is downloading, the screen will not refresh when I tab back to it. I have to click out of the Podcast section and then back to it to get an accurate update on how well the download has advanced.

After updating my iPod, the iTunes screen defaults over to the Library view, but it is all funkified up. You can't read the names of the files in the Library, it's like someone stacked two see through sheets of paper on top of each other so that they don't line up.

And I've already discussed with Veronica on her MP3 Insider forum that when iTunes transfers my files over to my iPod, it makes them end prematurely (but that rarely happens on CNET podcasts anymore).

Ultimately, I am underwhelmed. It basically works, but I don't understand how iTunes and iPod got to be the market leader.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
