I just downloaded itunes 7.2 which will allow purchase of individual tracks of music for $1.29 which will as Playlist says:
“Apple is calling the new music “iTunes Plus,” and plans to offer it alongside the FairPlay-encrypted AAC files it has offered for some time through the iTunes Store. “iTunes Plus” files cost a bit more — $1.29 per track, versus the $0.99 per track for protected files — but have been encoded at a higher bit rate, 256Kbps AAC, instead of 128Kbps AAC, which should yield better audio fidelity.”
I owned one of the first ipods with a 10Gb hard drive. It was about the size of a pack of cigarettes. When I first got it when I would show it to friends and others I would amaze them with the comment’s like “this little box holds 1700 songs” Or ” it contains radio programs”. They would look startled and amazed. It wasn’t until 3 or 4 years later that folks began to “get” it and the ipod took off.
