Pros: Great quality - great price
Cons: Will not convert to MP3 for a player other than iPod
Summary: Man was I irked when I finished downloading twenty some odd dollars worth of music from iTunes and tried to convert the selections to MP3's to use on my Rio Cali MP3 player. The files are locked leaving you only two options: burn to CD or transfer to Apple's iPod. I'm a die-hard Mac user, but was absolutely furious when I found out that I could not put this music that I purchased legally on a player that was not Apple brand. I figured out a time consuming way to do it after some experimentation, but I won't post that here or the thieves at Apple might block that too. Bottom line, Macs are great, iTunes is a flippin' ripoff unless you want to cave in and buy their brand of player. There are a ton of MP3 download sites out there that don't sell a deceiving product as Apple is doing with iTunes.
