Perhaps, but you have _definitely_ demonstrated the problems of a
single company trying to lock its customers into a proprietary device
and then control their access to music that must be paid for _and_
played on this device. It is a little frightening.
My advice? Forget about iTunes / Apple and set your iRiver up with
mp3s that you create yourself or access legally from a file sharing
I have an iRiver and have gone one step further and packed it with Ogg
Vorbis files which are completely free, unlike the mp3 format.
Among the tales of sorrow and of ruin that come down to us
from the darkness of those days there are yet some in which
amid weeping there is joy and under the shadow of death light
