    ...do you think at some point apple would allow for device to device (iphone to iphone) sharing of songs? Thoughts? Thanks.

    What, like the blasphemously crappy Zune model?

    Not a chance.

    DRM free doesn't mean they're condoning your piracy. It just means they're not encrypting the songs in hope of preventing it. I thought the concept of the Zune filesharing was interesting, but the implementation was pretty rough. Apple would really have to nail it to make it fly after MS screwed it up.

    People can listen to previews on the iTunes store via 3G. What's the point of sharing songs? Maybe it's just me, but I don't exactly go around in public saying, "OOH, can I hear what you're listening to?" I also don't dance like those crazy people in the iPod commercials did. Ah, being white. It's a curse.

    Absolutely not.

    DRM is the only way to make something like this happen, because you aren't ever going to be allowed to pass around permanent copies.

    You can already pass around permanent copies...

    By using your computer.

    He's right that they'll never make sharing using ONLY the phone easy to do.
