The Fairfax County Library introduced a new service in February: 700 digital audio eBooks freely available for downloading into patron’s portable music players. But there is one hitch: no iPods allowed. The service only works with Microsoft’s Windows Media Player. Is this fair?
(6%) A. This is bad, the library should be promoting reading
(12%) B. This is great, whatever format they use

(4%) E. Three cheers — I hate iPods!
