Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Online subscription services from Napster and others are beginning to put pressure on Apple to allow users to "rent" music, reports Reuters. "The only reason they have iTunes is to sell iPods. If it turns out subscription services are important to sell iPods, they'll probably get into that business," said Jupiter Research analyst David Card.

Subscription or not, if they continue to implement a model that restricts me to the iPod to play the music, I will not buy anything from Apple. Open standards, and the freedom to port the music to various platforms and devices is of the utmost importance, and Apple refuses to concede that.
