Paging Nathan Jones

So here I am, browsing through the contents of my iPod. Look, I have three separate copies of Bananarama's Nathan Jones: The extended version from their album Wow; the version from the Rain Man soundtrack, which seems to be the same; and the compress-the-hell-out-of-the-dynamic-range version off their Greatest Hits. Which sounds like dog dirt by comparison.

Now I'm over the formatting debacle, I'm a lot happier with it. But why can't iTunes rip music from multiple CD-ROM drives at once? Huh? Why, Apple? Why?

(I have six versions of Glenn Miller's In the Mood on there too. It's not that I'm a Bananarama freak... Or not just a Bananarama freak.)

1 I know why iTunes can't rip from multiple CD-ROM devices. They couldn't build the app as a massive mp3 ripping machine because that would upset the RIAA. Without the RIAA there is no iTunes music store. Without the music store they sell a LOT few iPods. (4.5 million in the 4th quarter of 2004). Without massive iPod sales no leverage to try to expand desktop market share. So I blame the RIAA.

2 First Bananarama... what's next, Bow Wow Wow? Fun Boy 3? (not that I'd complain, m'self...)

3 Stephen - yeah, that's pretty much what I figured. Plus with Windows' crappy I/O management, it would probably kill the machine.

4 Hmm -- I've had an iPod since last September, but I bought my first iTune just last week. I don't think the store is that huge a driver; there are other mp3 buying outlets, and Napster is using online radio to pull sales.
