Wow, is it just me, or is MacWorld UK getting a little testy with the stories lately? That headline was very misleading (no offense to you Mudbug, not trying to shoot the messenger).

I have to agree with you. The headline has nothing to do with the story. Unless it was in the NY Times which I don't subscribe to.

I also felt mislead... there is no reference to customer's headaches using iTMS... Perhaps the wrong title? Otherwise...

Apparently, they referred to the difficulty in luring new customers being a headache. Trying to fit single ideas into a headline often leads to disaster--"Children Make Tasty Snacks", for example.

Very true. That makes more sense now...

Good example. There are a bunch of (hilarious) examples here (http://www.mapping.com/headline.html).
