itunes does a lot of crap that annoys me. Mostly it crashes a lot; that really annoys me.

Today’s annoyance is that it won’t sync my ipod, because I don’t have enough free space on it. I’m annoyed because it refuses to sync at all, which includes syncing my ratings from the ipod back to the PC. I have a groovy podcasting setup; it’s a smart playlist that includes all playlists that don’t have a rating of 5. As soon as I listen to a podcast on my ipod, I rate it as a 5, and it falls off the smart playlist.

So if itunes was smart enough to copy over my ratings, it would free up a bunch of space, and I would have enough room on my ipod. But it’s not that smart.
