They Should be Ashamed

Crack dealers usually give out the first taste for free, since they know they'll be back for more. And now Apple has released iTunes 6.0, which includes the ability to buy TV episodes (through the iTunes Music Store), which means my monthly ITMS bill is going to skyrocket. Next thing you know, I'll be fencing hot VCRs to feed my craving for downloadable media. At the moment, it appears that you can only grab a few shows (current stuff like Desperate Housewives, Lost, etc), but you know that's gonna change. If they add the entire Sanford and Son catalogue to the list of downloadable tracks, I'm sunk.

Bap-bap-ba na, bap-bap-ba na na na na, nat-nat-na na na, ner-ner-ner-ner-ner-ne-new, ne-ne-ner-ner-ner-ner-ner-ner-nerw.... (wah-ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-werrrr.....) BA-BADA, da-da-da-da-na... NER, naNER.. na na na NA NA NA NA, NA NA NANER.... (Well, you get the idea. Hey, the theme to that show is my ring tone on my phone, for chrissakes. It's just a funny song. But I digress.)

Anyhoo, iTunes just keeps getting better. The last version integrated podcast downloads & subscriptions, now the new major release includes TV shows. If you don't already have iTunes, you should. You don't need an iPod to enjoy it (I don't have one), and it's easily the best media manager out there.
