Buying Current Tune at Starbuck's

I stopped by a Starbuck's on our way up to Oregon and did something cool. You know how they have songs playing in the background? Well now if you have an iPhone, you can go to the iTunes store and buy it using the onsite WiFi. In fact you can see what has recently played before too. I bought and downloaded a Sarah Vaughn song. It probably works with the ipod touch too. Definitely a good trend because I often want to get what's playing for instant gratification.

Update 2007-12-17: One thing I don't like about buying songs this way is that the songs currently have DRM (digital rights management) on them so you have to authorize them on a computer to play them :-(. I know the trend is toward DRM-free music. For example, Amazon now has DRM-free music downloads. The iTunes store is supposed to as well, but I haven't figured out how to search for that yet.

BTW, I'm blogging this entry from my iPhone.
