Keep the RIAA off your back
I hope that if your a mac user you have been wallowing in the glory that is iTunes Music Store. To date Jules and I have purchased 3 albums and 20 single tracks, and I am very happy with the buying experience so far. Today Buy.com launched their music store, so all you PC users can get in on the action (Wired News story.) I haven't investigated it too much, but it looks like the price and DRM structure varies a lot more than iTunes. Songs start at 79¢, but most are closer to the iTunes price of 99¢, and there are more limits to what you can DO with the songs once you've got them. The service uses Windows Media Format (.WMF) which is a better encoding format that MP3 on a strictly aural basis, but it gives the Evil Empire a lot of control over the files. But, checkout the new site and treat yourself to some tunes today! While your there take a look at the TV spots on the site. They are nearly exact copies of the iTunes Ads.
