One of the major benefits of the iTunes Music Store is supposed to be the ability to buy any single (in the inventory) without having to buy the whole CD. But this really isn’t the case. In my extensive perusal over this last week, I have found that many “top singles” can not be bought without buying the entire CD. For instance, try buying Don McClean’s legendary hit ‘American Pie’ as a .99 single – no dice. You must buy the entire album. Also try buying the Eagle hit ‘Hotel California’ – available on a few different cd’s – same thing. You must buy the full cd. I have found easily a dozen or more instances of this.

Recently I purchased a Polaroid SprintScan 4000. I thought it would be no problem to connect to it my Pismo, but I’m out of luck still. Are there readers that have successfully used an scsi-to-firewire adapter to connect a filmscanner? Belkin doesn’t respond to my questions. The other option would be a pcmcia/CardBus solution. The only card I can find is an Adaptec PowerDomain.

I’ve been a reader for over seven years now (started when I was shopping for my PB 1400) and you guys have always had the best insight on portable technologies, so here’s my question: I was reading about the new iPod’s “store text notes” feature and saw on the site where Apple mentioned “Now you can have the information you need – from restaurant reviews to concert guides to news articles – right at your fingertips.” It wasn’t until I read the “news articles” one that I started to wonder, would it be possible to have an Avant Go-type service for the iPod?
