So I've never used iTunes, but I wanted to buy some individual music tracks off it. Couple of questions:

1) Does it give me the file? I'm not interested in using iTunes as my music player, so can I buy it from there then move the file around as I wish?

2) Is all the music on the iTunes store legit? I was looking at some Jpop stuff, and a few look like they had just been uploaded by any random individual, rather than the proper recording company.

You can convert it from iTunes format to MP3, then you don't have to use it either. I do the same thing, because I megaloathe iTunes.

As far as I know there's a vetting process for everyone who publishes for-sale music on iTunes, so you should be safe.

You can just right click the files in the iTunes library and hit "Convert to MP3"

1: go to preferences
2: Go to import settings
3: Go to Import using and go down to mp3 (or whatever you want)
4: Don't forget to go to custom and change the Bit Rate or whatever to your liking When you're happy, hit Ok on all screens until you're back to the front of itunes (saves your choices).

Next!

5: Left lick on the track you want to convert and...
6: ...wait for it...
?????
7: Success!

No Problem! It took a bit to find out that you have to go into preference and import settings to actually have 'Create MP3" show up. I think by default iTunes is set for AAC/AIFF or something along those lines?

I'm going to hijack this thread to ask my own iOS question... anyone know if you can permanently delete games and apps from your account history? Sometimes I like to redownload stuff I deleted, but it means going through the myriad of games I downloaded to try and hated.

I hope not, that'd be dangerous for Apple considering how many stupid people there are. The "Purchased" page is searchable, though, if you know what you're looking for.

I know you can "hide" songs on the iTunes music Library on a computer, at least.

@Flamingr1ft - I saw those J-Pop "covers" as well. I believe they're legal, but they aren't very good. Make sure you look specifically for the artists and not just their songs...
