I usually use the timer to turn my music off after a certain amount of time when I'm sleeping. However, I often want to use the timer as a regular timer and sometimes I forget I have it set to "stop playing." It makes no sense that they don't have a separate timer for those two functions. Isn't one in itunes? Just last week I set a timer for 45 minutes to bake some cookies, and while it was great that the music I wasn't playing would have stopped if it had, nobody warned me my cookies were burning, had ignited, and set my kitchen on fire. Also, anyone wanna buy an oven?
