I don't feel dirty at all

iTunes for Windows

I'd be lying if I didn't say I anticipated the new release of iTunes today. Reasoning twofold: a.) I was hoping for some fun whiz bang features on the mac side b.) was looking forward to having a music player/organizer on the pc that I'd feel comfortable using.

No great new stuff on the Mac side. However, it's totally weird seeing the familiar Apple icon on the Windows desktop. It's comforting in some odd way.

There's oddities though. The scrolling of the music store is atrocious. The minimize buttons are wonky. Windows resizing is also, wonky - not at all smooth and fluid like on the lesser popular OS. Best PC app ever? Methinks not.

I was surprised I could download the installer or access the store.
Apple is surely getting more traffic than ever before. (oh jeez, i'm rhyming)

Ultimately, I feel like I'm playing Sonic the Hedgehog on a Nintendo system, and I don't mind it one bit.

Heather says the iTunes store is addicting.
"Why's that?" I ask.
"It's not often I can go music shopping drunk."
