An interesting news story for those who buy music online:
“Rival targets iTunes customers”
Personally, I plan on running to the Real store to purchase as many albums as I can at this cheap rate, because as much as I love iTunes, I love a bargain even more. Time to stock up my iPod.
And really, as much as I love my iPod and my G5 and consider myself an Apple supporter (although I’m only a recent convert, really), I have to say that I wish Apple would lighten up about this. After spending up to $499 (well, now $399 with the new model iPods) on a portable music device, god forbid you want to actually put some music on it! And who cares where it comes from? You’ve already made Apple hundreds of dollars richer. Does it ever stop?
Interesting, as well, that Apple would make a big deal about their rival using “hacker techniques.” Wasn’t it Steve Jobs who prided himself on his hacker background?
But I digress. I guess the point of this post is this: CHEAP MUSIC!!!! WOOO!!!!
