Apple: Don’t Buy Audiobooks from iTunes

Ok, file this one under, “weird.” Apparently a bunch of recent audiobooks sold in the iTunes Music Store play just great in iTunes, but refuse to play on iPods. It’s come to the point that Apple has reportedly recommended that iPod owners not purchase any additional audiobooks from Apple’s own iTunes Music Store! If only Microsoft would say the same thing about not buying the Zune, then maybe we’d all sleep better…

Apparently the snafu is a result of something that Apple’s audiobook partner Audible has in these new versions. One of the books is Al Gore’s newest, The Assault on Reason. Since we know Steve Jobs is a big Al Gore fan, we know he can’t be behind the sabotage. Maybe the culprit is a pro-Obama coder over at Audible? Hmmmm… stranger things have happened
