Kudo's to Apple, removing DRM - but sucks for me!
Why, you might ask? Well, I have been using iTunes and purchasing from that fine institution since about 2003. I have approximately 2,701 total songs (242 individual, and 149 albums) that are eligible for upgrading.
An UPGRADE of my iTunes + account to make all my previous purchases NON-DRM would run me $548.93 - Ummmh, not worth it.
I don't or haven't had any need to use my music in anything other than my:
- 1 GB iPod Shuffle
- 4 GB iPod Nano (2nd Gen)
- 8 GB iPod Nano (3rd Gen)
- 16 GB iPod Nano (4th Gen)
- 40 GB iPod Photo
- 60 GB iPod Video
- 160 GB iPod Classic
- 8 GB iPhone 3G
- 40 GB Apple TV
Yes - I know I have enough shit to choke a horse, but I really only use the 160 GB Classic (10%), 4th Gen iPod Nano (60%), and the Apple TV for music enjoyment so... All my stuff is Apple and legal anyway!
I am glad they finally have gone NON-DRM, but I am not worried about my old stuff - What do I want to see?
Musical Repository that multiple collections can see and 'UPDATE' automatically! My music is already stored on a server, but it isn't worth spending 500 dollars to upgrade... not yet...
BTW - my music collection is now at:
- 20,185 items
- would play for 58 days, 22 minutes and 41 seconds if I started it today
- and amounts to 91.26 GB's of space on my server (not including movies)
