    In order to promote the new iTunes Wireless service, Starbucks is set to give away free music downloads across its entire US channel. More than 10,000 stores will hand out a total of 1.5 millions songs per day from October 2 to November 7. Customers will receive a "song of the day" card with their coffee purchase, containing a promotional code to redeem at iTunes. 37 songs will be part of the promotion, including music from Paul McCartney, John Mayer, Bob Dylan, Joss Stone, and Annie Lennox. Earlier this month, Apple announced it had struck a partnership with Starbucks to allow users of the new Wi-Fi-enabled iPods to download music wirelessly while in the store. The service will have initial rollout in major cities, and is expected to be available nationwide by 2010.

    so I can pay 5 bucks for a cup of coffee and get a 50 cent song (or less, I assume star*ucks is paying much less than retail)??? Yay!!!

    I have a 20 dollar coffee maker, and I'll sell you a cup for 2.50 (that tastes better) and you still get a free song. I'm gonna be rich.

    /most extreme sarcasm in the world

    Oh, and self-respecting people don't use itunes b/c they don't like to get ripped off.

    Incorrect, you pay 5 bucks for a cup of coffee and get a redemption card for a song that you most likely don't want, though if you did would have just downloaded it for free via P2P :)

    and btw random murderer, as soon as I get my system all up and running I'll be interested to see how ours compare on benchies :)
