    The iPod isn't a cell phone.

    re: wait in line?

    yeah, HBO would be stupid to exclude iPod distribution based on their Cingular agreement. And HBO ain't a bunch of idiots, like the music business suits are.

    hm

    All of these services definitely are trying to compete with iTunes, in fact they are fixated on it. This is probably HBO trying to put pressure on Cingular to close the deal.
