Slashdot's coverage of the story:
Thomas Hawk writes "Apple is out hyping their one billionth iTunes download
today, but is building your music library in a format that could be obsolete
in the future really the best strategy? Will the consumer once again have to
someday replace their iTunes track just like they had to replace their LP,
cassette, and CD only to get their music on their hot new non Apple mp3
phone of the future? "
