    Alright, so my mom and step dad are all scared that iTunes will "scam" them out of their money. I've tried explaining that iTunes is directly from Apple, so they're abviously not going to do anything illigal, but they still don't believe me.

    Please, how can I convince them that iTunes is legit!? I really want to download PocketGuitar and other apps.

    Parents are stupid in general. Tell them to do some research.

    They must not know anything about tech, show them the site, the iPod box and google some info to convince them.

    They are not stupid in general, they are only trying to protect you. Think about it, they're not sure and they want us to be safe, obviously parents would be cautious of what we're doing and downloading, they might fear someone could take their credit card details and use it...

    Wow. Parents are so stubborn. I'm like, "Frank, can I show you something?", and he's lile, "Not if it has anything to do with my credit card."...

    Any suggestions? :/
