get access
to their playlists on the go.  nuTsie doesn't download your songs from
iTunes, but matches the names of the songs in your playlists to

server.  It gives access to your songs and also
friends' playlists and those compiled by nuTsie's own
"experts." It costs $4.99 a month or $19.99 a year.

Note:  BlackBerry has updated their media sync program. There is now a preview version for MAC OS.
