The iPod's Deathgrip is Loosening



Napster has become the latest online music vendor to announce that it will sell unprotected MP3 files from its web site, the UK Guardian reports. What with all of the major record labels but Sony BMG playing ball, it means that most online music files will soon be completely agnostic about which digital device they're played on. Once that happens, there's one less reason to buy another iPod once your existing one craps out — which you know it will.
