- Forum: iPod + iTunes + AppleTV
Not really a good analog. Because a CD player can only play C.D.s. An iPod can play music from a variety of sources including from Apple's Music Store, ripped from traditional CDs, and downloaded from anywhere in MP3 format. Apple told people from the get go, that music bought on the iTunes Store could only be played on Apple devices. Moreover your analogy doesn't make clear if Sony or the music labels are dictating the lock in.
