Didiom just let me know about a free new application they have released for BlackBerry. It lets you placeshift your music. Or in layman terms stream your music from your PC to your BlackBerry. They also incorporated a music store into the software letting you buy DRM free music but that seems to be a secondary feature. They even have a funky algorithm where you can bid for the price you are willing to pay for music and it will accept or reject your bid. Kind of like Priceline for music. It seems to be available for the 8300 & 8800 series now but they are showing pictures on their site of it running on a Bold.
