Oh boo freakin' hoo. You could contain my tears over his in a thimble.

Perhaps if:

a) They didn't rake us over the coals wrt pricing of CD's;


b) They put material on CD's that matched peoples tastes a bit better.

I make custom CD's from my iTunes library all the time. On occasion
I'll give one to a friend. So now I'm the worlds biggest pirate.

And to anyone using iTunes in a workgroup setting there's MyTunes
Redux. It snags the packets of iTunes shares and downloads the song
files to your library.
