    Technically you could just use JHymn and just set it to re-encode all your iTunes music as mp3 files then you could put em on the iPod and the 360 or just burn a CD and put all the music onto the 360 that way.

    Not really surprised that Apple are protecting their own DRM music, but they should leave evreything else alone.

    Yeah, I figured this would happen. Kinda sucks, but that's life. The sad part is that I'm less likely to buy iTunes songs now because the 360 is going to be my living room jukebox. Maybe Apple will cut a deal with MS on the DRM. No one is trying to steal the songs, just listen to them in the living room. That's "FairPlay" if you ask me.

    Unfortunately, I don't think it's up to Apple. :(

    Why not? All they'd have to do is give MS a few lines of code and voila!

    Can the car adapters play/use the store songs?
    Like the Alpine iPod Interface?
