When I used to read his columns, I wondered if he sounds like Cramer's radio show...

That's somewhat true if you buy from the iTunes music store (AAC and FairPlay DRM). But the iPod itself supports lots of formats, including uncompressed (CD quality) WAV and AIFF. Also supports: MP3 (16 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3 and 4), and Apple Lossless.


Also, the ITMS purchases can (and should) be burned to a CD. Once you do that, there is *no* protection on the CD itself.

Do a google...I've seen that around.
Hmm... probably not for me.

(sorry I just saw your reply.)

Maybe that's what I'll do when I have a spare computer that can be dedicated to the job for a month or so. (350 cd's, 11 a day would be a month.)

Good idea, I hadn't thought of it, because I don't have a (true) spare PC.
