    Itunes going DRM Free (and new price structure)

    FINALLY!!!

    Apple revises iTunes pricing, offers new 17-inch laptop - Jan. 6, 2009

    Schiller said iTunes will now offer three price points for songs: 69 cents, 99 cents and $1.29. It will also offer all of the 10 million songs in its library without copy protection, and will allow iPhone users to download songs through 3G wireless networks.

    I was so happy when this was announced.

    I think the only thing that sucks about it though, is that if you want to take off the protection of previously purchased songs, you have to pay a certain price. I think it was something like 30 cents a song? Apple should just take it off without question.

    Yeah, that parts crap. 30 cents a song??? Just give me my 5 cent CD and I'll just do it the hard way.

    In addition to being able to download via your iPhone via 3G, those with older iPhones can use the EDGE network.

    What exactly does that mean, "without copy protection"?

    I'm picturing a crowd of pumped-up Apple fanatics, chanting at Steve Jobs to "take it off! take it off!" at one of his keynote speeches.

    It means that new songs on iTunes will not have this as part of the song file. -----> Digital rights management - Wikipedia

    You will be able to transfer your iTunes-purchased music to any number of media, whether iPod, CD, DVD, Flash drive, or another computer, without limit.

    iTunes music is drm-free now, but for the old itunes users, full of music must pay a 30-cent upgrade per song, 60 cents for video upgrades, it seems a bit expensive and isn't worthwhile, the very economical and legal way I use to convert itunes plus to mp3 is with Daniusoft media converter Pro, it can handle with all types drm and common video music files, and also supports batch conversion, works easy and great

    Or you could just burn the songs onto a CD from Itunes and re-burn them onto Itunes in the MP3 format.

    There's also a program called WinFF that I use to convert songs for those who don't have iTunes.

    Re: Itunes going DRM Free (and new price structure)

    Wow... this might even convince me to get an iPod
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    There's several good low cost or even free file converting programs out there.

    Steve Jobs didn't even give the keynote at MacWorld this week. Phil Schiller was the man of the hour this time around. Sadly Steve is dealing with some health issues (hormone imbalance that's been causing weight loss). But the good news is he's remaining CEO of Apple while he undergoes treatment.

    Hopefully next convention Apple is at, Steve will be well enough to take the stage again. And I want my 32GB iPhone, dangnabbit!

    Re: Itunes going DRM Free (and new price structure)

    That's stupid! Making us pay 30 cents a song to make it not copyright protected. Obviously by now, everyone owns their favorite songs they've ever liked on iTunes, since iTunes has been around for so long. That's wrong.

    I am looking for VMK Cards! Please email me if you have some!
