Friday, October 26, 2007 Now Sells MP3's

Most people tend to enjoy shopping at and buying MP3 music from the mega-popular iTunes Store Music. It's a great place to pick up top quality music from your favorite artists, then download with a click and transfer to iTunes or your iPod. The major problem with iTunes MP3's is that they aren't really MP3's though. Instead, they are copy-protected and basically set up so you can only enjoy them on your iPod, iTunes, or if you burn them onto a compact disc.

Now has stepped into the digital download market and is offering MP3's for purchase. They have over 2 million songs available and get most new albums just like iTunes does. Songs range in price from 89 cents to 99 cents, and albums range from $5.99 to $9.99. The beauty of the Amazon MP3's is that they are actually MP3's, and they don't use DRM (Digital Rights Management). This means the songs you buy and download from Amazon can be transferred to any of your portable music players or listened to on most of your media player software. Many people may not yet be aware that Amazon has started with this, but it appears some albums were even $1 cheaper than they are on iTunes, and you'd get full use/enjoyment of the MP3's.
