Apple arguing with iTself on my iMac

  • I just plugged my iPad into my iMac and launched iTunes.
  • A dialog appeared saying there's a new version of iOS for the iPad. Would I like to download and iNstall it. Yes.
  • A few seconds later a dialog appears saying there's a new version of iTunes. Same question. Yes.
  • I think you can see where this is headed. :-)
  • Some piece of software says that I can't install a new version of iTunes unless I quit iTunes. So I try to quit. Then I get a dialog wanting to confirm that I want to quit iTunes while my iPad is being updated with the new version of iOS. Either way, no or yes, gets me more dialogs. I can't get out of this loop any way other than to force quit all the software that's running that's orchestrating this Kafkaesque madness.
  • Somewhere Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave. (Or at least rolling his eyes.)
