From Lorne Lavine at Digital Dentist, not really dental but I agree iTunes is maddening.
Twist and Shout
Like many people, I have an iPod device (or two or three!) that I use all the time. However, I’ve never been a fan of iTunes:I find it clunky and slow and hate how Quicktime tries to take over my files. One of the best alternatives I’ve found is DoubleTwist…it’s fast, works with iPod and other devices, and is easy to use.
