Would you be any less likely to make an iPod your next music player? I would not. The bulk of my music still comes from ripping CDs and other non-iTMS music sources to iTunes. Clearly the iTMS is an integral part of Apple's success with the iPod. Now that millions realize how great the iPod and iTunes are, does Apple still need the iTMS to remain dominant for the iPod to remain successful? Probably so, but I was just wondering.
