    Alright, you know how when you buy songs, you can authorize them to play on 5 computers? Well i have used all 5 of my authorizations, and i am wondering if there is any way to "take them back" or something. I plan to get a computer when i go to college, so will i be able to undo the authorization say on my friends computer, in order to free up an authorization for my new computer?
    Sorry if this is kinda confusing, it doesn't really make sense to me...:confused:

    Yes, if you log into your account in iTunes, you can reset the authorizations to zero. You then have to reauthorize the ones you want to keep.

    Technically, you can only do this once per year, but if you ask reeeeaaallly nicely, Apple might let you do it a second time...just something to keep in mind for the future.

    Thanks and you're welcome!

    The only reason I was first was because PlaceofDis isn't on right now...he seems to have my number today! :D
