Didn't they just LOWER prices, or at least promise to, a month or so ago? I haven't downloaded anything in awhile, but I remember seeing that headline somewhere.Bocephus Jones II said:So you can still get Hanson's MMM Bop for .99c, but the new FloRida will cost you $1.30. Greedy. Greedy.
I just pay Rhapsody $14 a month to listen to whatever I want. Haven't bought a CD in over a year now.Cory said:Didn't they just LOWER prices, or at least promise to, a month or so ago? I haven't downloaded anything in awhile, but I remember seeing that headline somewhere.

I don't have a problem with subscription-based. I don't care if I own all the music. I get to check out new stuff and as long as I pay I can keep listening. Kinda like cable TV. You do have the option of buying songs for .99c each (or cheaper per album) if you want--then you can do whatever you want with them. So far have not seen the reason to do that since I either listen at home, via my computer or on my MP3--all things I can listen to the music without owning the songs. I believe you can have 2-3 MP3 players authorized per account.Brick Tamland said:Some prices will go up, others will go down. And iTunes has been moving in the DRM-free direction for a while.
The problem with the rhapsody model is that you don't own any of that music. If rhapsody goes away (or you stop paying the subscription), so does all your music. And then your $14 per month doesn't seem so economical, doest it?

I can play mine on any computer, via my stereo using a wireless device (Roku) and also play on 2-3 MP3 players (that do require syncing at least every 30 days.

Of course, it would require 'always-on' broadband at home, on my mobile and in my car. I don't need to own the music either, so long as I can listen to anything I want at any time and in any place.
