Picked up the new Beck album with iTunes music service. In some ways honesty is going to be hard. It isn't that we can just share files amongst ourselves anymore with the AAC encoded bits bought from the Apple store. We can burn each other mix albums, which is honest, and stream the tunes, but it'll work a bit like mildly enforced honesty, there'll be ways around it but they'll be things you have to go out of your way for. If Taggart stores his songs on my HD as a back up it'll be just that. I can't access them without "authorizing" myself.

On the other hand, the music is much cheaper (although for lower quality) and tres handy. They don't have any Yo Lo Tengo or Kronos Quartet, but it is hard for me to put together the time and remembrance to go to the music store. I'm digging it.
