I know Tom Cruise is Weird usually posts these but I haven’t seen one today.

Currently experiencing the most bizarre Apple idiocy. I pay for my iCloud storage with a gift card instead of leaving a credit card on the account. It was time to replenish the account so I bought a gift card online directly from Apple for iTunes...or so I thought...

Turns out Apple sells gift cards for the Apple Store that you can’t redeem in iTunes. And while I’m like 90% sure I clicked the iTunes card I got an Apple Store card instead. I got the card through email so I can’t cancel and just redo things.

So here I am on hold (half an hour and counting) having stumped the Apple operator as well. Why the hell you can’t redeem an Apple Store card for an Apple product I’ll never understand.

What’s driving you insane this Friday?
