on how Universal refused to its content to Microsoft's online store without getting
royalties for each Zune sold. Universal CEO Doug Morris has apparently swallowed
Microsoft's DRM scheme hook, line and sinker. He is now quoted to have said of
devices other than the forthcoming Zune, "These devices are just repositories
for stolen music, and they all know it,". As an Ipod owner, I hope he likes
the taste of his foot, because it is very much in his mouth now."

For casual programmers and new Imac owners like me, is one more piece of software that will keep from booting my Imac into Windows XP."
