Ipod Nano Misery Continues...

The misery doesn't stop -- to add photos to the Nano, I must now install yet ANOTHER application -- iPhoto, just to add freak'n photos to my Ipod -- how retarded is that? What if I go to my friend's house, and want to take some pics from his computer to add them to my device? Sure, I can, but I have to install iPhoto on his computer -- if that's not retarded, then I don't know what is. So, I have to install to large, processor hungry applications, iTunes, iPhoto, just to manage my Ipod? Am I the ONLY ONE??? that finds this tedious? My old Creative device -- plug it into the USB, open, drag/drop, unplug ... go ...

I was under the impression Apple was supposed to be all about usability -- guess not. They're worse than Microsoft now ... I almost feel like taking the Nano back! (it does play music well, though ... I give it that much)

Hey, Apple, let me copy/drag/paste into the Ipod, and I'll give you some props ...

I don't wanna just drag-n-drop my 5 megapixel pictures on the nano - those will take a long time to render and waste precious memory. Apple's software automagically scales to the appropriate resolution for the nano's screen on sync.

You don't need to install iPhoto. There's a 'photos' tab in iTunes' iPod preferences, which allows you to pick either "My Pictures" or another folder to sync with automatically.

Apple's approach avoids the manual copying of photos and songs. When you rip or download tracks into iTunes, they show up in your iPod automatically. As you save photos into 'My Pictures', they show up in your iPod automatically. I think the Creative approach may be simpler, but its more labor-intensive if you want to keep things up-to-date.

What you say makes sense, but even if everything you say is TRUE, there is NO reason why Apple should not allow folks like me to do what I've been doing -- you should be able to use iTunes IF YOU WANT TO ... but, making it impossible to do so is silly.

You make a good point about the photos deal, though ... but, I think moving music between computers is hampered and slowed by forcing me to install iTunes -- I think using iTunes could be a nice option, but why limit how I WANT to do things? It's not a technology issue -- they deliberatly made it the way they did to FORCE me to use iTunes (so I might buy music, etc...) ... it's strong arm tactics at its worse.
