Just paid for and downloaded my first album from Apple’s new iTunes Store. For years I’ve been arguing that the main justification one has for copying (illegally) MP3s is that you’re pissed that you so often pay 18 dollars or so for an entire album and then only end up liking a couple of songs. All of that overhead into manufacturing and distribution and the artist is lucky if she gets more than 50 cents back from your 18 bucks. So now I get to put my money where my mouth is, and that I am happy to do with this service. The quality is awesome. Also, usually to find new music I go to Amazon.com and play the Real Networks clips with crappy sound quality. The clips on iTunes are high quaility and stream very quickly. Bravo Apple!
