WMA format is incompatible with Apple's iPod which can only play Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) format files from Apple's iTunes Music Store.
Why do all of the iTMS articles or iPod articles say that all the iPod supports is AAC?

I think they meant of the DRM variety. Most people know that it can play mp3's. The funniest part is that with every new online music store that comes out, these articles always mention Apple and the iPod/iTunes. They all mention the impending release of iTMS for Windows as the one to beat.

Go Apple.
