"It Just Works" (, , )

by fluffy at 8:50 AM

For the first time in a while, I decided to buy an album off the iTunes Music Store (since it was the only place it was available). Actually purchasing it required:

  1. Logging into iTunes
  2. Accepting updated terms and conditions
  3. Logging into iTunes again
  4. Enabling a bunch of wish-it-were-two-factor authentication questions (with the usual problems the pre-set questions always have, and no way to set custom questions)
  5. Logging into iTunes again
  6. Being notified of the download on every iOS device in my house simultaneously (some of which I didn't realize were even turned on)
  7. Being asked if I wanted to turn on automatic downloads of purchases (why yes I WOULD like to actually download this music I just paid for!)
  8. Finally, logging into iTunes again

At that point it finally downloaded the album.

    Ah, but after all that, it'll just work from now on.

    Until they change something.
