comment Why does my iTunes use so much CPU time?
-1 Why is this answer relevant at all? He's complaining about the level of CPU use when the system should be quiescent. No playing, no encoding, just sitting there minimized. (I've hooked up a debugger and I see the cost spent on redrawing the screen. With no visible windows and nothing animated when the iTunes window is open. WTF! For the record, audio playback takes about 1% of a CPU core…)

You can't use an ASCII NUL. Think a while and you might spot why yourself…
