Legal Well, this was as inevitable as the tides rolling in. The New York Times is reporting that the US Department of Justice is investigating Apple's tactics in the digital music market. The antitrust probe is still in an early phase, and is said to focus on "the dynamics of selling music online".

I get MP3's from Amazon and I don't want any other format. MP3's work with everything I have and I see no reason to change just because another format saves a few more bits of the original recording.

As far as I understand it, I can't get my music as MP3's directly from iTunes and I must instead download them in some other format and then convert them to MP3. A hassle I'm not willing to endure repeatedly. If there was some setting that said "always download as MP3" then I'd consider it.
