I was extremely proud of Apple not bowing to the copyright terrorists and letting users have full use of their iPod, including the ability to copy files on and off as they pleased (in manual mode). Unfortunately, it seems with iTunes 3 that you can no longer copy files off but only onto the iPod. This means I can no longer use it to synchronize the music on various computers in our house. This is sort of silly because it’s not technically difficult to get the MP3s off of it (they’re just in an invisible folder) but it’s annoying nonetheless.

Is this right or am I missing something?
