- Gift Certificates
- Perfect "round tripping" - syncs and knows where it stopped off. So, when you sync, the mac or ipod will remember where you left off

I really like the idea of allowances, so you can give your child a certain amount of money they can spend on iTMS. That's sounds like a really good idea


Celebrity Playlists - You can listen to a playlist put together by your favorite celebrity!

And one more feature...

iTunes for Windows!!!

Windows 2000 and XP only.

emceepj - That means I get my info before you
I have the live feed, while the web feed is delayed a little bit.

- Allowance - instead of giving your kids your CC#. Can give an allowance (recurring monthly gift certificate basically). No need for credit card for the accounts. Perfect for kids.
- You get an email with a Redeem Now, and gives you a Credit in your iTunes account. Can by anythingin the iTunes Store.
- Gift Certificates - most requested - select between $10-$200 to send to anyone.
