Well, duh.

There's also the fact that the Napster of today isn't what it used to be. Maybe a lot of people remember the "old" Napster.

Heck, some people even equate P2P with "Napster", so these kinds of surveys don't give us the real picture.

Seth Green spent many sleepless nights developing Napster until Shawn Fanning stole it from him while he fell asleep at his computer. True story. Well, maybe not...

iTunes has yet to be popular enough to be referenced in a major motion picture, but I think those who have used iTunes take the ease of use of it for granted.

However, Buffy's boss did use iTunes to trigger a vampire attack :)

It does say at the end of some movies that you can buy the soundtrack from iTunes. I can't remember any movie that plugs any other online store.

I'm sure somewhere else, other than Buffy The Vampire Slayer, that featured iTunes, but I can't remember.
