SBC Yahoo music service

Inernet service provider and similar services. Offering over one million songs, customers may purchase individual songs for 79 cents each, or 20 cents less than non-subscribers. Rights on purchased songs entitle owners to burn the track onto a CD or transfer it to a portable digital music player, such as Apple's iPod. The service also provides the ability to play songs for others over SBC Yahoo Instant Messenger, build personalized music libraries, and listen to commercial-free internet radio. Customers using SBC Yahoo as their Internet service provider can subscribe to SBC Yahoo Music Unlimited for $7 per month, or under $60 for a year if paid in advance, according to bizjournals.com.

    to an iPod?

    “Rights on purchased songs entitle owners to burn the track onto a CD or transfer it to a portable digital music player, such as Apple's iPod.”

    Am I missing something here? The last bit about “Apple’s iPod” has got to be a typo.

    Maybe they sell watermarked MP3? That would be real competition for Apple :/

    Don't worry, folks...

    ...this service is only for PC users, not us enlightened Mac users. I just checked it out, as my DSL service is with SBC, and there is no mention of support for Macs. Oh well, anything played on Windows Media Player sucks anyway.
