I tried out the Amazon online music store the other day. Ironically, I used it to buy the new Feist album which I learned about from apple's new ipod nano commercial(Ha, sorry Apple, whom I am a stockholder of, I kinda screwed you). In the Amazon online music store all songs are in the DRM-free mp3 format. The price 89 cents per song undercuts Apple's 99 cents per song. The price per album $8.99 also undercuts Apple's $9.99 per album...dang! The buying experience was ok, not much surprises. You checkout as you would as other amazon purchase, and you have to
install their downloader to download the tracks. And then of course if you use iTunes you still have to import them to the library. I like it. Apple, you better do something quick.
