Well, not for music. AIFFs and Sound Designer II still rule.

I wish Apple would let (if that's the problem) other people use the  
AAC (mp4) encoding. It's slightly more compact than mp3, and *much*  
higher quality. My aged ears can rarely hear the difference between  
AAC and 16-bit CD audio (24-bit is a different story), while mp3s are  
noticeably inferior.
