How is it that you are all so complacent about Apple's control over your personal property? I purchased this device, therefore it is mine, and I can put whatever I wish onto it. Where in the manual does it say that Apple has the authority to erase all of my information if I upgrade the software? I had a year's worth of biomedical lectures, tons of photo research, and surgical instruction videos on my Ipod. I clicked "Backup" before updating it to the new software. Now, it is all gone, and when I right-click and restore from backup, it doesn't do anything of the kind. Has anyone started a class action lawsuit yet over Apple's intrusion of privacy? What software company in their right mind erases all of a client's data from a simple upgrade?
