Amazon's new MP3 store

Amazon recently launched yet another MP3 music store. Normally I wouldn’t care about another MP3 music store but this one I am somewhat excited about (haven’t tried it out yet.) Real quick, the things that attracted me:- NO DRM!!!!!!!!!!! Finally, it’s about time! No more crippled music- 256K tracks. Finally Higher quality- Looks to be easy to use and puts the songs right into iTunes. Damn, watch your ass apple.- Tracks are priced between $0.89 and $0.99; Albums between $5.99 and $9.99-“only” 2 million songs. more to come I’m sure

looks like a win win to me. I hope so, it might be time to start buying music again!

I am going to try out both the website portion of the site as well as their standalone application tonight. Time will tell, but so far so good.
