Anger Management star Charlie Sheen, who got himself fired from Two and a Half Men after repeated public attacks on creator Chuck Lorre, is discovering new ways to vent his anger.
Just last week, Charlie was trying to transfer some music files from his iPad without employing iTunes. Problem is you can’t. So Charlie got a little off the rails.
“Let’s face it – Steve Jobs was a genius and he changed the world for ever and for the better, I think,” he reportedly
“He advanced our society but he kind of left us in a little prison. The fact you can’t share music between devices and have to go through this central hub makes me very angry.”
So what he did was he took his precious Apple tablet and “flung it.”
“I didn’t know how aerodynamic it was: you can use it as a weapon,” he said. “I looked over and the whole thing was sticking out of the wall,” said the actor.
Charlie cautioned that while it’s healthy to manage your anger by breaking stuff, there are far better options than impaling iPads into walls.
“You have to get it out otherwise it festers. Taking a baseball bat and smashing a bag of cantaloupes is good – that makes a great noise,” he said.
Of course, there are a lot of ways to avoid using iTunes altogether. Anyone who found themselves in Charlie’s shoes at one point should learn that there are quite a few options out there to transfer files between iDevices without wires.
is one such example. Its Favorites feature allows you to throw all your favorite songs (and other files) in there and play them much in the way iPod plays tunes. Add a song in your Dropbox folder on your PC and it will instantly appear on your iDevice as well (provided that you have a wireless Internet connection).
Other music playing apps also boast sharing functions (tethered, or untethered). For example, yTechMobile specifically notes that its EZMP3 Player
doesn’t require iTunes sync.
