Hey Apple here's some programming advice

Before pushing out another update of your shitty software, you might want to learn how to use one of these things:
* Threads
* An Event Loop

I'll warn you: The first technique is a bit tricky, I'm not sure if you're ready for it. You might want to start with the second one and see how you get on.

What am I talking about?
* iTunes: If it has to do anything "hard" like access the filesystem, or open the app store it freezes up for five seconds.
* Safari: Try load a big page in safari: You're Welcome!

I know you consider your software to be a work of art, but that doesn't mean I want to stare at it's motionless canvas for 10 minutes.


Your Number One Fan.
