Thoughts on Amazon MP3

Posted on Mon, Oct 8, 2007

I was pretty excited when I saw that Amazon was launching an MP3 store, selling very high-quality MP3s free of any DRM junk for reasonable prices. I just tried it out, and with a minimum of fuss, I'm sitting here listening to the new Erin McKeown CD.

The bad:

Overall, I definitely dig it. This isn't the future of music, it's the present. It's nice to see that the music industry is finally starting to realize that people are going to get their music as non-DRM MP3s whether they're offering it legally or not.
