I hate to triple post, but...

I burned a CD of purchased music, and iTunes burns ACC in AIFF format. I guess it has to, doesn't it.. hmmm....

just a quick rant...

i've never bought an album from iTunes, only misc songs (and only from albums i wont ever buy).  the reason is i'm still not comfortable paying 10$ for something i cant even have a physical reminder/backup of.  one thing that bugs me about iTunes is that they sell singles from albums in advance of their release, which is stupid because i cant justify buying a song or two and then spending more money on those songs again when i buy the album.  even if it is $1, its a waste.  SO, on the new Madonna single, i see if you pre-order the album you get the single now.  says pay only .99 and then when the album comes out you'll be billed the rest for that.  so i was thinking (even though i wouldn't buy this album) THAT's what they SHOULD do!  if you buy the album you are discounted the price of the song you already bought off it.  BUT, thats not the case!  in a clever trick iTunes is charging $12.99 for the album (not the usual 9.99) BUT the fucking albums only 12 songs!  so guess what that extra .99 is?  yep, your stupid single that you're paying for twice.

It's not guilt at all. It's just decency. I know the money generally doesn't go to the artist, so one can't literally claim that it's for the artist's sake, but it's a good standard to have -  and for artists who release their albums themselves, it's especially important.

I buy songs on iTunes when I can't find good quality versions elsewhere.

I'm growing to love iTunes.  I just bought

and


New albums by two of my favorite artists released on the same day, and thanks to Apple I can own them mere instants after I've learned about their existence. 

I do miss liner notes a little, but it's a changing world.  You've gotta roll with it.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
