    None, and I mean NONE of the pay for download sites (iTunes, emusic, Rhapsody, etc.) ever rip the music properly. So most of it sounds like crap.

    For my own CD's I use Audio Grabber with the LAME plug-in and rip at 320k. Sound is close as you can get to CD quality.

    This says that Microsoft is one of the advertisers. Since the files contain DRM, and at the moment are incompatible with the iPod, you can bet the files are in WMA format. A format that the iPod doesn't support.

    And for this article to say "while the iPod is the most popular music player, it has not succeeded in dominating the market" is also wrong. When one company sells over a third of the market's digital players, that IS domination. The remaining percentage is a mix of several different companies.
