That said, I still think that lossy compression is an idea whose time has passed. Storage is cheap. Bandwidth is cheap. What's the point? Well people like me who have 3k+ songs on my list, and a 32GB iPod touch, can't possibly fit all my songs in lossless.. Not to mention, I've used the Apple store, and haven't had that choice of lossless. (Though i might go and repurchase the Gorillaz Plastic Beach on CD if not, something better, because the iTunes version has clicks and pops in their audio).
