New iPhone 3GS to replace the nicked one, and a quick restore leaves me with ... fuck all.

For some reason the pissing thing doesn't want to restore all the apps I had.

Downloading them all again will drive me crackers.

Why the cunting fuck did Apple decide to to shoe-horn iPhone management functions into a program designed to manage MP3s on a fucking obscure platform like the Mac, and then make PC users suffer it too?

iTunes is a fucking terrible piece of software, always has been and I doubt it will ever be made any better - it is a prime example of Apple's ethos of 'We know best' (in this case '...what you want and how you want to do it') but with out even the slightest whiff of their other prime directive 'Form over function' as it looks shit, is hard to use, is massively bloated and is still useless even if you can work out the arcane and arse backwards intricacies of doing anyting remotely straight forward with it.

It isn't any good at managing MP3s either.

Yep, I agree. Itunes must have been written by a retard. There's no other explanation.
Been using it for 2 years now and still get problems with apps suddenly reappearing after I deleted them. The mp3 interface is utter toss, there must be a better way of managing your music??

By the way, anyone with an iPhone 3G, don't install ios4, it royally fucks up the speed of your phone. Same goes for the iPod touch. ios4 works great on an iPhone 4 but me thinks it was never intended to be run on a phone with 128mb ram.

I use it to sync between a phone, a touch and 2 iPads, sharing 1 set of apps on a single account. Never had any problems...

He's an Apple fanboy. They're all retards, who struggle to work a mouse with more than one button.

Pass the mind bleach. Durden really needs to have his posting privileges taken away for that one.

Meanwhile somehow my iPhone has managed to restore (Lord knows how it did it; it certainly didn't TELL me what it was up to) some of the DATA from the old apps, if not the apps themselves. So I've only lost about 6 weeks of important data rather than 5 months' worth.
