    no, itunes is the spawn of satan.

    On android phones you just copy the music you want into a music directory on the phone, tell the music app to scan, and then play (I use poweramp)

    To update my music, I just sync what songs I want to update, via windows media player. Dead simple. No fucking around, with shit like itunes..

    Hmmm, It seems I'm not the only one who HATES iTunes...... and I only deal with it at work.

    My Mrs would agree. Something to do with the amount of swearing that would make a sailor blush, while I'm on itunes...

    I find Dropbox app very convenient. It's just I can't fully utilise it due to slow upload speed. It's basically a private cloud storage.


    If you can make it on Kiwibiker you can make it anywhere.

    To use iTunes with you Android use iSyncr. It even will even sync back your ratings and play counts back to iTunes. PlayerPro is the best player I have found that works well with iSyncr.

    What ever happened to the good old copy and paste? It's a lot better than fucking around with software that achieves the same thing in the end.

    Can anyone recommend a good app for mapping my ride? So I can see how many ks, etc and all that jazz, then send a copy of it to someone?

    I did about 80k today, over all sorts of roads, and I'd like to be able to show that to my mum so she can stop stressing about me. Though that might make her worse.

    http://ridewithgps.com - you can map your ride.

    Otherwise there are a number of GPS apps for running/cycling/etc which would do the trick.. endomondo, cardiotrainer, or strava are ones I use.

    I've got a good toy for mapping my rides. It's called a road map. Simple, permanent and anyone looking at it can follow the route and relate that to the surrounding country.

    I just found the best Android app ever. Why the OS doesn't have a CLI from standard is beyond me. It is quite a bit different from the more traditional *nix OSs, but it's still a bit of fun to play around with. "su" works as well provided the phone has been rooted

    It doesn't have any man pages unfortunately

    doubleTwist is also supposed to work well with iTunes, my music library doesn't all fit on my phone, so I just use it with standard drag and drop, is a nice app to use too.

    Sweet Home is another essential, syncs things to a network share over wifi with no software needed on the PC side. I use it to get phone photos onto my PC.

    And swiftkey for predictive text input.

    Google goggles is pretty neat for QR and pattern/picture/text recognition
