    Obviously you're not a golfer.
    does anyone here even do that on the existing phones from sprint, verizon, etc. that allow you to buy music on the phone? seems to be more of a sales gimmick than anything else, i would not want to purchase music to my phone, id rather do it to my laptop and then sync. i think. then again maybe apple will make me want to do it all the time.

    From the picture in the Engadget story, it looks like the song would be downloaded to your main iTunes library PC and then sent to the phone somehow. Although the way I envision it would be that it would download to the phone, but the next time you synched your iPhone to your computer, it would be transferred back to your iTunes Library.

    You don't buy from them because (this is true for sprint) it cost ~$2.99 to "lease" the song for 90 days, and that ~$2.99 doesn't include what they charge you for the kbps of downloads that is associated with the size of the song.

    It would be great for them to allow you to download to both at the same time, you hear a song on the radio, you go on ITMS and buy it for $.99 then choose to download now or send to computer. Either way when you get home you can sync and it would be up to date.
