iTunes.exe Missing

I had a strange one today, I haven’t loaded iTunes for a while (my iPod holds most of the stuff I want to listen to), but my son needs some party music for his first birthday. So I loaded iTunes and the shorcut referenced a location that no longer exists?! A quick check showed there was no iTunes.exe!

Where are the programmers of tomorrow?

I retweeted a story from the BBC this week: Are children becoming ‘digitally illiterate’? I became a father not two weeks ago, and seeing this story made me think back to my own childhood. So I retweeted it and was surprised at the response.
