No One Ever Reads That Stuff

Preface: There is an "Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track" service in Snow Leopard that converts selected text to speech and sends it to iTunes.

Today I went for my weekly freebies in iTunes and was presented with one of those "iTUNES STORE - TERMS AND CONDITIONS" pages that come up from time to time. Most people agree to the new conditions, and proceed to download their tracks without reading that document. I include myself in that group of most people.

But this time I thought it might be fun to capture the text and let "Alex" read it to me later.

The audio file I got was two hours, sixteen minutes, and forty-one seconds long. No wonder no one ever reads that stuff!
