    I understand your concept of a "music warehouse" being on a single
    computer, and that's a fine use model for millions of people.

    yes it is because you want it to work in ways for which it was never
    designed. you're fighting it every step of the way and you're going to
    lose.

    get a product that works the way you want.
    only because you're stubborn and won't look at new and better ways of
    doing things, which are not only more powerful but much simpler too.
    that's where you're *very* mistaken.

    if you think an ios device is nothing more than a device that plays
    music or makes calls then you are *not* using it anywhere close to its
    potential. android is what you want, or even windows phone.
    it's that ios and itunes is wrong for you.

    stick with android and have fun micromanaging every little detail,
    since you apparently get off on that nonsense.

    meanwhile, the rest of the world can 'slide' whatever they want to it
    with little more than a click or two and without even needing to find a
    cable if they prefer (a little slower but the convenience makes up for
    it).

    they can even have it set to do it automatically, such as auto-sync
    unwatched tv shows, without needing to lift a finger.
    where do people come up with this shit?

    not only is your analogy backwards, but there are *no* rules
    promulgated by anyone, cupertino or elsewhere.

    the user is *always* in control.

    the itunes model does significantly more and with less effort on the
    part of the user.

    using your analogy, itunes is the modern world with power tools versus
    the prehistoric era, where they might have had a sharp rock.

  3. You can only copy an app's .ipa file (got at by syncing your iOS device
    to iTunes on the desktop) to another device that you own, as each .ipa
    file is locked to your App Store account.

  4. How? She'll have a different App Store account so the .ipa file won't
    work for her.

    Using iTools.
    That is only true of iTunes, not iTools.
