In Playlist: The Need for Weed, I found the buried lead.
If the part about Mac support for Weed being available in "weeks" is correct, then that's the buried lead in this story.
Quoting Weed's FAQ: "Weed uses Windows Media DRM..."
I think WMA DRM being available on the Mac would qualify as BIG NEWS!
This would (at least) allow Mac users to buy music from Wal-Mart, Buy.com, and others. (I don't necessarily want to, I'm pretty happy with iTMS and AllOfMp3.com, but I think the best marketplace is the one with the most options and more competition.)
