    This has changed from earlier this evening. Earlier if you searched "ringtone" the search would time out.

    Now you can find a bunch of stuff from "Captain Audio", short ringtones from 7 to 17 seconds each, 99 cents each.

    Search iTS for Captain Audio or ringtones.

    Edit: noticed there was one 17 seconds long.

    Sorry, just to add a little info, none of the id3 info available before purchasing the tracks indicates anything different than other protected AAC's.

    I guess now the big question is whether these are for iPhone or some other bizarre purpose. I guess if they were just released under some contract label, they might be put on iTunes Store just automatically, but why the change in search from earlier? And how much good would protected AAC ringtones be if not for the iPhone?

    Yeah, a large percentage of farts and burps.

    I also just noticed there are a bunch of lame yodeling ones by "Jewel Clark".

    <runs for cover from pissed off armed yodeling gangs>

    Edit: Also a bunch of stuff from "The Jerky Boys"

    "The Jerky Boys" seem to have more than their fair share of class as well. :rolleyes:

    What that is, is people preparing for the chance that iTunes may allow ringtones to be sold...and they are uploading their own products to be sold on iTunes. It's smart business...nothing more.

    I'm inclined to agree. I think we'll see this as an official feature before the release rolls around. Give Apple credit this whole thing has been pretty much perfectly managed so far.

    Is it the Bob & Tom "What's New Pussycat"? That's hilarious.

    Yeah, these don't seem like Apple's solution, but again: 1. Odd that multiple people were unable to search "ringtones" earlier (it would time out) the night before, 2. Not just anyone can upload, they have to be under an Apple contract. Still, because of the lameness of these, and the fact that they appeared before any announcement, and with various release dates, all point to them just being 3rd party controlled.
