iTunes Hack – How to Make Your Own iTunes LP!

Number one reason I despise Apple’s philosophy (and have a big grudge about) is their propreitary format including the iPod/iPhones, it might make perfect sense for Apple to monopolize the market (and create their own eco-system) but at the same time, it brings everyone else in the world (who’s manufacturing to MP3 standards) down.
