As part of the collection of Didier's Birthday gifts, back on the 12th, I gave the Mister a $25.00 gift certificate to the iTunes store. With the MAIN intent of his downloading the new version 3 software and then whatever the hell else he wanted. A couple days later I received one in kind for the anniversary. That now gives us BOTH $25 in our iTune Accounts and when you deduct the $9.99 from them for the cost of the Software upgrade, that still leaves us both with $15.01... or so we would have thought.
See, each time for the past fucking month when I open my iTunes to mix up my iTouch music you are promptly taken to the iTunes store where they tell you about all the fun and fabulous thing you can do once you take the upgrade. BUY BUY BUY they say and you know what we WANT TO but we can't.
WHY can't we. Well I'll tell you WHY... Because even though on the gift cards it simply says:
1) Open iTunes
2) Click on Redeem
3) Scratch off label and enter code.
4) Download your entertainment and enjoy.
NO WHERE on my card does it say, "but not for the things you REALLY want and need like software upgrades, or apps... because, NOPE you CAN'T BUY APPS or SOFTWARE UPGRADES through iTunes" with that lovely balance on your account. Even thought that is EXACTLY where you MUST purchase them from...
It's in the fantastically SMALL PRINT on the website help page where it tells you that it's not good for software. Fuckwads!
Nice fucking scam you got going on there you peice of shit mother fucking money grubbing asstards!
At the bottom of the back of the gift card it says "Don't steal music" Oh! You mean like you just fucking stole $25 from each of us.
This is EXACTLY WHY I download music and will continue to do so, because the supposedly honest and upright places are just as sleazy and thieving.
So, dear iTunes Store you can suck my sweaty ball sack.
