Wow. I read this in an article a friend sent me but it's still weird.

I buy from Amazon and it seems they've followed suite. I only buy whole albums so I'm a happy camper if the price of albums stay under $10 which they are.

All the Applie groupies with iPods are still buying it seems. I'm not sure what it takes to piss these people off or if that's even possible.

Never bought an MP3 and never will. I hate the idea of not being able to physically hold it and the potential for losing a HD and all that money paid for the lost music.

I dont buy many MP3's, but cant you re-DL since the MP3 is bound to your account? Or am I totally off base here?

All you need is a backup drive. Externals are pretty cheap these days. Plus you can always just pull them back off your ipod.

True, but I don't feel like wasting money on it, like I said, if I pay for a CD, I want to hold it. I build PCs but with music, I'm a bit old-fashioned I guess.

I used to feel the same way but there's something pretty cool about being able to carry around my entire music collection in my pocket. Plus it's nice to have the extra space in my house that was previously cluttered up with hundreds of CD cases.

The way I see it is that if you bought it and you lose it you can all ways re-download from a bit-torrent site guilt free.

they're too apathetic to care, they overpay for macs, they probably think that the higher priced mp3s are that much better too..

Basically my thought. I can't live without my Ipod now. I even use a shuffle for exercising. The thing is the size of a matchbook and holds enough music for me to basically never repeat a song. How I ever exercised without it is beyond me now.

Yep me too. At first I tried the arm strap thingie with my regular ipod but I found that to be a pain in the ass and kinda distracting. Bought the shuffle which I previously thought I would have no use for, now I can't go to the gym without it. Damn you Apple!

What's an MP3? Seriously, I've heard of them but I don't know what they are. Is it like a walk-man without the CD or tape that you can download music off the computer with?
