As a child I loved the AMC Gremlin and vowed I would one day own and drive one. Maybe not, but it was not that ugly a car! And what about the fact that the record companies had no interest whatsoever in this iPod/iMusic thing and thought it was really no big deal. They were even successfully browbeaten into accepting the $.99/song price level that Apple claimed was necessary to have the business work. The major labels (as I understand it) wanted to charge more and had to be talked down off the ledge of stupid greed. Is Apple realy the villain here? Aren't the big record companies to blame for not entrusting their music to any system that is not closed like Apple's and therefore not as secure in their minds?

DRM is a killer for all. Luckily, Wal-Mart and other stores are now selling MP3's DRM-free.

DRM is obsolete, I know that they want to protect their invesment but I think that drm free music is better because you don't have to pay for to listen your music in other devices.
