    Hurrah! You’ve finished more than me x]

  3. Angela says:

    Lol, I’m kinda using some of your things to do for my own list. =D sry. lol.

  4. They’re a few alluring items you’ve got submitted in your webpage.

  5. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
