And if we do what the media companies want, we'd be purchasing separate versions of media for consumption on our home computer, mobile computer, iPod, iPhone, Television and so forth. While I might agree that purchasing a physical book does not entitle me to a digital copy, I do believe that once I have a digital copy, I ought to be able to use it on any digital device that I own.
iTunes consists of three distinct parts: 1. An online store where one can purchase media. All music on this store is now DRM free and may be played on a large variety of media devices. 2. A "jukebox" app for managing media from a variety of sources, only one of which is the online music store. 3. A synchronization app for Apple media devices. I would argue that parts 1 and 2 are open to anyone on the Mac or Windows platform. It is only the third part which is...

So I've been in multiple Starbucks across the country and while iTunes seems to recognize that I am in a Starbucks and displays the banner across the top of the iTunes store, I have never actually seen displayed what song is playing on the overhead speakers. When Apple announced this deal with Starbucks, I thought this was going to be one of the "features". Has anyone actually seen this work?
Thanks for the info... I just placed my order!
