why I hate the ipod

Since the beginning of time, I have always had a problem with stupid fads and unwarranted hype, and any other stupid reason why things that shouldn’t be popular make it into the mainstream. Actually, more often then not, I hate things just because they are mainstream. No, by no means am I claiming to be some rebelious young lad, or any of that anti globalization or anti establishment crap.

Its pretty much just the way I am. However, I think in the end, the pointless dislike I have towards certain things actually materialize into real reasons.

I have hated Apple, probably every product to come out under their name, since I was in the 5th grade. I hated how everyone had this massive misconception that if you are doing graphics design, or any form of publishing, if you wern’t using a Mac, you were doing something wrong.

What I hate even more than their fruity computers and stupid designs is the Ipod.

Why do I hate Ipods? many many reasons.

First. I hate how when people (or the media) refer to mp3 players, they have to refer to the Ipod. There are a multitude of other mp3 players that exist that are the same or better than the Ipod. Most of the time they are cheaper, have more disk space, and are often better designed, especially since other companies are coming out with new mp3 players every day, and Apple continues the same design of the Ipod month after month..for a couple years now.

I hate the stupid touch sensive knob. I think it is a horrible design.

I hate how Apple forces you to use ITunes to connect your IPod to the computer. ITunes is overrated (like the IPod) and has a shitty interface. Most other mp3 players just show up as a drive on your computer, and you can drag songs and files back and forth however you want. You can use whatever you want to listen to the songs on the player as well.

I hate how everything Apple makes now starts with an “I” Just like every statement in the entry

I hate the fact that everyone that gets an IPod that I see keeps the junky white earbud headphones that came with it. They know they arn’t any good, but if you actually got a good pair of headphones, you would lose the whole fashion statement of having a classy IPod strapped to you.

I just got bored with this, and since it’s past 5, I am leaving work. Its Friday, and I am happy.
