U2’s Bono had some choice words for Steve Jobs about iTunes, according to TUAW’s Yoni Heiser.
In an interview with Irish radio host Dan Fanning, Bono recounted a conversation he had with Steve Jobs in 2009:
So 5 years ago I began a conversation with Steve Jobs at my house in France and I said to Steve: “How is it that for a person who cares about the way things look and feel more than anyone else in the world that iTunes looks like a spreadsheet?”
Bono was probably talking about iTunes 9 (or eariler). Admittedly, it looks pretty spreadsheet-esque:
To Bono’s point, iTunes hasn’t changed much since this version came out. It got a slicker, more modern look in 2012, but it’s still pretty much the same.
Apple recently used iTunes to give away U2’s new album, it wasn’t exactly a big hit with users. Apple is also reportedly rebranding Beats Music into iTunes, a signal that the bane of Bono’s existence isn’t going away anytime soon.
