Making a Snow Leopard Cry

Obviously a Mac OS X Snow Leopard can cry. Just don’t upgrade to iTunes 9 along with the accompanying music library update, gap analysis, and genius matching and update your iPhone to 3.1 and redeem an iTunes gift card and do a Time Machine backup all on a variety of drives. You too can make […]
