This is how digital media should be, available in whatever format you want once you've bought it.  The problem comes if they decide they want to milk you for each of these additional downloads in other formats, or if you need to re-download something.  I want to hear how they're going to handle that.  Also whether there are limits to how many other formats you can get or where you can use them.  If I buy a movie, can I put a copy of it on both my ipod touch and my wife's?  These are the kinds of answers I need.

All that should work. The idea is that once something comes into your domain (your home) it should be freely available on all the devices in your home. At least that's what their goal seems to be. Whether they're actually able to make that happen or not, I don't know.

Although I still prefer the 'nerdy' way of converting my media, such as "backing up" DVDs ;-) this would be nice for digital retards, I mean technophobes... excuse me. It would squelch out some of the "Hey, how do I do that" questions we get!

If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?

This sounds like a great idea... can we do it with games too?  If I buy Fallout 3 for PC, I should be able to play it on 360, PS3 and whatever other cross platforms it goes on.  That'd be nice...
