Amazon vs iTunes Store
Amazon.com has just launched its own mp3 download site, offering them DRM-free. Yes, read that right, DRM-free. It means you can copy the mp3 onto whatever computers or players you want regardless of the number of times!
This is a global service so if you're armed with a valid credit card, you're set to go. You'll just need a US address when they ask you to register if you haven't already had an account there. You can copy a US address anywhere.
Prices for each song is around US$0.89 to 0.99 on average, which is slightly cheaper than iTunes.
Currently, the service has around 2 million songs and counting. I have no doubt that one day the number of songs will rival that from iTunes music store.
Amazon shares are up again, to $93. Buy that too, if you're able, for it's only to go up.
