That's why I wouldn't want an iPod, iTunes or anything like it. I like to be in control of what goes on my MP3 player. I don't trust computers with things like this.
Unless things get really complex, I also don't use any computer program to do my maths for me. Unless it's numerical, but in my experience the analytical capabilities of most mathematics software (Maple, MatLab and such) are about that of a slightly backward donkey.
I am also the kind of guy who writes appointments down using a pen and a physical agenda.
