I don't know why, but every couple days my Mac interrupts me and asks me to update iTunes. I tell it NO and select the checkbox to DO NOT ASK ME AGAIN but Steve won't leave me alohone!!!! :mad:


To make matters worse, I have 3 Macs so I have to waste more time telling Steve to go to hell, when in reality, HE KNOWS I don't want it because I was signed into my iTunes account each time I refused it. He's got a piece of paper in front of him the reads:
President Camacho said:
We've got this guy "Not Sure" who has refused the iTunes update 3 times in just one day... Guess we need to send him to rehab.
LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!!
I'M A HUMAN/!!1 :mad:

Going by your signature you have an iPad. So i would more so suggest the latest itunes then an older version for the bug patches. And i don't believe that the updates are bloatware in fact many give you more performance.

I believe your right and it shouldn't keep bugging you. But then why not just bite the bullet and upgrade?

because they bloat the computer and slow it down.
How did you work out which version to install in the first place? From iTunes 1 to 9.1.1? Which ones are bloated and which aren't? I'd really like to know.

Unless you have jailbroken devices I don't see why you wouldn't just upgrade? And I really don't think itunes upgrades will bloat your machine any more than the previous versions. If anything there might be a few performance enhancements.

Between the paranoia concerning upgrading, the delusion that upgrading slows your computer down, and the uncontrolled shouting in your posts of colorful language, may I suggest therapy, and perhaps medication?

The magic coin says so. Heads for lovely, Tails for bloat. Three Tails in a row? Burn them all...

Lol

We've got this guy "Not Sure".... LOL

...It started off boring and slow with Not Sure trying to ******** everyone with a bunch of smart talk: 'Blah blah blah. You gotta believe me!' That part of the trial sucked! But then the Chief J. just went off. He said, 'Man, whatever! The guy's guilty as ****! We all know that.' And he sentenced his ass to one night of rehabilitation!

Que dilldozer and ass-blaster...

Could your itunes version have the settings bug "remember my settings" that does not take. A some version ago I ran into this bug when itunes never remembered my password in spite of me using the remember feature. Perhaps it's the same bug popping up here for you.

Post was fun to read though go easy on the Steve :)

I am happily still running iTunes 8.2.1. It does everything I want. I have no interest in Social Sharing, Home Sharing, Genius Mixes, a new store format, LP extras, etc., etc. It's likely that someday I'll buy a new device that will force me to upgrade, or a new OS won't support the old version, but until then I won't bother with it.

Given that it is free and offers better performance, why wouldn't you update? I can see the point in not updating if they removed features or somehow made it worse. I don't use any of those features you mentioned either (except Genius very rarely, it is pretty great).

I'm general curious here!

Seriously, why should I make a change if I'm happy? It's not like I'm uninformed about the differences. I looked over the whole feature list of iTunes 9, read several reviews, and decided there wasn't a single new feature there that interested me. And it also sounded like the UI for the store was not as nice as in iTunes 8, exactly why I don't remember now.

Just what performance is better anyway?

Boot times are a lot faster with my library (300gb), same with syncing and general navigation and memory usage is down a bit.
Don't like the new store though. I still can't find where they put iPod 5G games. Other than that its nothing but improvements.
