If the competitors implement solutions which are DRM free, then their solutions will be 100% iPod compatible, as long as they don't involve WMA as a format. If they then become successful, then the Apple will need to rethink its approach. Apple could play nice to the competitors or the competitors could play nice to consumers. I would like both, but given a choice, I would rather the latter.

Apple is playing along because it is in their interest (they make money), and they are probably being very careful not to upset big media. On the other hand I would be curious whether an independent label can ask Apple to sell its music without DRM on it? If the answer is no, then Apple...
It may be unfair that the celebraties are getting free Macs, but just see it as cheap advertising. In most cases its pocket money to the celebraties, so its not as if it makes much of a difference. To most buyers it is a lot of cash, but when you promote you want to gain the most attention.
