-Can't comment too much on the 'Party Shuffle' feature since I'm at work, but I really like the concept. But it seems more like a glorified playlist at this point. Will have to play around <br>more later.<br><br>- Subtle little feature that some people might miss- little arrow graphic next to certain songs in my library, and when I click on the arrow iTMS does a search on that song in the store. Will certainly prove useful when I'm looking to replace some of my pirated MP3's later on, instead of having to manually type them into the search field.<br><br>-iTMS now has music videos! Only 72 of them to be sure, but that is a VERY cool feature for those of us who can't stomach more than 10 minutes of MTV, and are sick of having the videos interrupted by a little box in the corner with some obnoxious teenager screaming about how they're dedicating the song to their friend Becky..."Oh MY GAWD!!!! D12 RULES!!!" Please shut up.<br><br>-Movie trailers!! Normally I just go to quicktime.com for these, but iTMS pulls off a nice little integration with existing soundtracks ("Music of James Horner") and the trailers of current flicks.<br><br>-The 'iMix' feature looks neat- Fun way to share playlists (of course they have to be iTMS-purchased songs only)...wish I could test it here, but no iTMS purchased songs on my machine as of yet. I gave Steve Job's playlist 2 stars. I'm no suck up. <br><br>-One free download from the iTMS in honor of the anniversary. How big of them, a song I already own. <br><br>-Don't see the options for printing CD inserts- hmmmm....<br><br>That's all for now...maybe one of our cohorts at home can dig through this thing a little deeper...<br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
they also increased the number of machines that your bought songs can be played on from 3 to 5. that's nice.<br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.

No way, unless you're comfortable with 25MB tracks? Plus, your iPod will have to buffer all the time, decrease battery life, etc.<br><br>This is good for musicians though (even Garageband folks). They can cut the size of their uncompressed tracks in half and take them around on their iPod.<br><br>
No, its not AAC, its completely new. It compresses, but its lossless, like a TIFF image with LZW compression.<br><br>Think of it as like an AIFF only half the size. Pretty nifty, I'd bet Mattmac will love this.<br><br>
Yes, but with the aid of the iTunes crack software, you can get rid of that restriction. <br><br>I don't like the idea that they're trying to control something that you've paid for and now own. <br><br>"You're off the edge of the map, mate! Here there be monsters!"
yeah, but you are really not "owning" the song itself. you just own the file...sort of like software. read an end-user-license-agreement and they will make it clear that you are just purchased a license to use the software on a computer (or something along these lines). you can't legally use that software CD to install the software on 30 computers. how do you see music as being any different? the only thing that is really different is that music used to be so easy to copy (e.g., put CD and copy to computer...send to complete address book). now, they are finding the technology to restrict this free-for-all type system with regard to music and bringing it more in line with software. while i don't like the copyright laws, per se, i think this is perfectly fine given the copyright laws. sure, you can break the law and do whatever you want, but that doesn't make it legal.<br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.
