Is Cash No Longer Legal Tender?

Incorrect. Banks nowadays will charge a non-accountholder....
Umm, not incorrect. I've cashed quite a number of cheques at multiple banks in the area I live in, and have only had one bank (possibly, I still don't remember) that wished to charge me a fee. Even if this isn't true at the bank you went to, or even perhaps in general, it does not make my statement incorrect as it was based on my own personal experience.

Just to avoid further pedants:

The above is my own personal experience, YMMV.

X-treme-LLama writes "Apple announced today that EMI Music's entire digital catalog of music will be available for purchase DRM-free (without digital rights management) from the iTunes Store in May.

DRM-free tracks from EMI will be offered at higher quality 256 kbps AAC encoding, resulting in audio quality indistinguishable from the original recording, for just $1.29 per song. In addition, iTunes customers will be able to easily upgrade their entire library of all previously purchased EMI content to the higher quality DRM-free versions for just 30 cents a song. iTunes will continue to offer its entire catalog, currently over five million songs, in the same versions as today — 128 kbps AAC encoding with DRM — at the same price of 99 cents per song, alongside DRM-free higher quality versions when available.
Sounds like a heck of a deal, especially with the ability to upgrade existing songs for just 30 cents."
