You tell me what is wrong with this picture, as I fail to see how the two applications are remotely connected:
Is there some fancy feature where I can listen to my MP3s using Outlook 2003 that I am not aware of?
Sure, go ahead and blast me for not realizing that I could sync my Outlook calendar to my iPod. Oh wait, maybe I should buy an iPod. And, if I had one maybe I would have it connected via USB that would actually force the error you see above.
Better yet, why the fuck does Apple insist on installing iTunesHelper.exe and iPodService.exe when I have NEVER connected an iPod to my computer?
Apple, if you’re listening (and I know Steve Jobs is a huge fan of Hot Lard) … where are the options in the iTunesSetup.exe where I can deselect iPod connectivity? I simply cannot spare any more resources of my 3.49 GB of RAM to allow you to install two services that never actually are used.
God, I hate the way Apple is cranking out their shitty iTunes software. It is about high-time I uninstall this garbage. See Maddox for more information.
