I've just downloaded iTunes, and I am going to buy an iPod in a few days. This is surprisingly easy (even a techno-phobe like myself can figure it out!) and I'm currently pulling a bunch of songs off of different CDs and downloading them to iTunes. It's great because I can now get rid of about 40-50 CDs that I only bought for one or two songs.
It's enough to make Little Miss Neat-Freak cry tears of joy.
