    Major issues with Apple UK customer service

    An email I just sent to Steve Jobs in a vain attempt to get something done about my iMac G5, which has spent more time in the repair centre now than it's been up and running...

    iTunes 4 - still imperfect?

    OK, before y'all start jumping on me I have to say that iTunes is probably the best audio software I have ever used. In fact, the addition of AAC encoding has now got me ripping my entire CD collection again, despite the fact I've already got everything as .mp3. So, why imperfect? Has...
