Okay, so what is the best player? I've downloaded WinAmp and it's cluttered, crowded and doesn't have Genius. Actually it's like storing my music in the house of a hoarder. I no like it. What else can I use?

I personally swear by foobar2000. It's lightweight, has lots of useful features like cuesheet management and a really intuitive audio converter that aren't available in most other players, and supports pretty much every audio format under the sun. I think it has an iPod manager as well, although I haven't used it. The main things that prevent me from using it to manage my iPod are the lack of the "Sort Audio" feature and the lack of a way to put in album artwork. But if you don't care about those there's probably no reason to use iTunes at all. Then again I don't use Genius so this might be kind of useless to you because I don't think it has a Genius equivalent. However, it's definitely not cluttered.

Worse, since FF 4 is 64-bit, Flash Player does not work with it. :brooding:

--J.D.

P.S. Actually there IS a preview release available that WILL allow the Flash to work with 64 bit FF Here--working fine on FF.

I tried that. It wasn't very intuitive so now I'm trying... I think it's just Media Player. They all seem to have problems burning music in the order I put it in the playlist. Instead it orders it by song number. I don't want it like that, I want it in the order I put it in the list.

The mighty international Apple Inc. fears consumers worldwide will be confused by a tiny restaurant in Luxembourg named AppleADay. Their slogan? "Balanced Fast Food." Apple's response? Threaten to sue.

You're right, if it has 20 seats, it's in Belgium, Germany and France.

Hmmm - the new restaurant owners haven't made that much effort to avoid being linked to Apple's brand, though ...

It's a stylized apple. Not much resemblance with the Apple logo at all.

I agree, but the resemblance is also there in the shape of the sign, with its metallic-edged oblong shape, and rounded corners - all deliberate design choices. In that context almost any apple shape will ring branding bells, I think.


btw It's nice to be taken off your ignore list, watser? :) When did that happen?

Apple (Jobs Apple) just uses a silver apple now. There are also only so many ways you can draw an apple. Furthermore no one in their right mind (ie. not Apple users) would go to a small restaurant in Luxembourg and expect to be able to buy a MacAir.

I dunno, I regularly take people off ignore after a while and check. I decided you have interesting things to say as long as it is not about this forum.
