AFAIK you can only purchase songs from the iTunes store in AAC format. To
get them in MP3 format you'd have to do the decompression to WAV and then
re-encode in MP3. How good that sounds depends on the quality of the
original AAC version, for the most part. Anyone else know of a different
method for us non-Ipodders? The windows version of the iTunes software seems
decent; it'd be dead easy to find songs and buy them, from what I've seen.
It's also easy to import any existing MP3's on your hard drive and use their
playlist/library software. You can then share them with other PC's on your
LAN, burn CD's etc., but the sticky part for us is making MP3's from
purchased songs for our rockboxed units. That is *not* part of the package.
