Here is an idea for Apple, one that will never happen. Offer a subscription model, fifteen dollars a month for a subscription model with porting to the iPod. But as an added bonus, your first fifteen permanent downloads are included. Extras are still $.99. In other words, you get to have access to the entire library if you pay for fifteen permanent downloads a month. They can be kept forever. That way music buyers will be happy because they keep thier music that they paid for, and get the benifit of taking the entire library with them, and when they cancel they get to keep the fifteen tracks and whatever extra they purchased. If fifteen dollars is not enough, make it twenty dollars or whatever, but give twenty permanent downloads, or maybe even twenty five dolalrs a month, however much apple needs to support the model. But, it will never happen.
