>Gears and Wears>Apple to offer EMI tunes DRM-free
I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

Interesting...I'm not sure that I would notice the increase in quality, since most of what I download is played on my iPod with sport headphones or on the craptacular speaker set-up connected to our 'puter.

Can't you just burn it on a CD and reimport it to get rid of the copy protection? Or does that diminish the sound quality in some way?
i have 66- all of which i lost in the great syncing snafu in april...which makes me wonder- if i were to click upgrade, would the files be redownloaded to my library, or would it just change the licensing to the tracks? I never did purchase one of those "I emptied my recycle bin but i changed my mind and really want my stuff back" restorers (though i should because i just know i will make the same mistake again and again...*not really much for learning lessons the first time*). However, hubby did bring home from work a nice roomy external h/d...
