"I have survived my iphone and ipad existence"

Sorry, I don't believe you. Even to use the IPAD, you had to register it using Itunes. Apples recent desire is to eliminate any use of PC's...and thus the reason for working on eliminating the software install. You still have to use Itunes for any content access.

Apple's requirement of Itunes is part of its controlled ecosystem. At least with can shop at other app stores. Apple controls YOUR use of its products from all sides/dimensions.

You may have consumed the cool-aid, but not everyone has. You can fool your self....but thats as far as it goes.

Does Google require you run a special software on your pc in order to utilize the Google Play store? Every time you pick up your Nexus 7 and buy a game, do you then get your micro USB cable, connect it to your laptop, load up the Google Play software, and then sync the game to your tablet? No...I certainly hope not lol, why do you expect Apple to be any different?

The day you bought your Nexus 7, you logged in (or created) your account on your device, loaded up the store, then started downloading apps, games, music, tv shows, movies, and everything else you enjoy. Replace "Nexus 7" above with "iPad" and the statement remains just as true.

Apple requires no software to be run on Windows or OSX for an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch to be set up, operate, or purchase, enjoy, or re-download content in any way. That includes games, movies, music, apps, ibooks, etc but does not currently include audiobooks. If you buy an audiobook on your ipad, you do need itunes to get it to your iphone, as I already pointed out.
