I suggest a boycott on Apple’s new music srvice until all software based new features (or at least the play que) are released to older customers. This should get Apple’s attention if enough people do it (and get other to). It should be made known to Apple that restricting update support for older users will not be tolerated. What can current buyers expect when the 4G (technically 3G > 3.0) iPods come out.
And in the meantime if you really need to satisfy your craving for downloading music, there are MANY p2p networks out there (which have a bgger selection, no restrictions, and are free).
Apple’s expectations are set very high for their music store, as were the expectations of all older iPod users for an update
