I used iTunes successfully for the first time ever today.
(Stop laughing at me.)
The download actually worked. And then creating an account worked and I was able to sign in without some irritating little pop-up box telling me that something was wrong. And then I was able to redeem gift cards a good friend sent me and buy music.
It's amazing. I have a little iTunes icon on my computer and, if I click on it, it works! Music actually starts coming out of my speakers when I push that triangle play button.
I've fought with iTunes before (and lost) but this time I won. Oh yes. I conquered the software. I harnessed it to my computer and now I can use it whenever I want.
It's a pleasant feeling :)
