    I recently setup a .Mac Account for my iWeb, and now want to use the same username for my iTunes, instead of a Apple ID (aID).
    I contacted Apple and they said that I can't merge the two accounts. :mad:

    In my Hotmail aID Account I still have come credit on the count, $24.00 approx.

    Now here's a solution I thought.

    If I GIFT a television show to myself at my new .Mac aID - it will use the credit in my account...
    Now I have a couple of questions:
    1) Who's account name will appear on the gifted television show? My new or old ID?
    2) What happens to all the other content that I have purchased with my old account? Will I still be able to play these?

    Can anyone see any problems in this solution.... its the only way I can think of getting around the merge... I want to stop my Hotmail aID and use my new .Mac aID.

    THANKS for any advice and help.
