I thought you hated iTunes. Did Apple just draw you back in?
All I'll really need to use iTunes for is to show them what I have and everything else will happen on the iPhone. I have iTunes on my computer and I don't think it's awful like some people, it just doesn't do everything I need it to so I use Foobar.

not correct. just get the 160GB Ipod (only non-iPod touch that you can buy these days). you'll never run out of room. it basically becomes a backup disk for all the information on your computer.
My digital music collection is 490 gb.... Most is ALAC or FLAC which usually comes out at about 200-300mb per album.
Crafting a playlist is an art... one that I have never mastered. Any automated system that says they can create a good playlist is lying!
my response is probably not a great one, but is what it is.
iTunes doesn't play flac. my CD's import as mp3's. i can't tell the difference between the two with my ears. I have no clue what that point of non-mp3's are.
but as far as the playlists go, it is not automated system that creates them. I set the parameters it just puts the music there that fits my criteria.
but i'm pretty sure there are more creative, better ways to create playlists using smart playlists, than what i've got so far. enlighten me!
Like I said, mp3 is not a future proof format. That still may not be enough for some people, but if I'm buying music it should be bit perfect and if I want to compress it, I have the ability to do that. I don't get why anybody would want to buy something inferior to another product for the same price.
You seem to have the art down for playlists. I meant that things like Genius do a pretty bad job of creating playlists, you really need to perfect the art to get good playlists. Just like mix tapes/cds. I was better at mixtapes, I try to cram to much into a playlist.
