so i was sucked into one of the free trial’s of emusic. 25 free songs and an audio book for free! no DRM (so i can copy it to itunes and play it on the iPhone or on the PC without the need of a unique player). not too bad, right?
well iTunes just turned 5 and i really have only used that as an option for about, well, 5 years! what else is out there. these other guys have had years to build libraries and relationships with other digital venues – right?
i bought 1 song. i spent about an hour looking through genres, artists and could not find another 1 (never mind 24) songs i wanted to buy. maybe i’m too old, maybe i’m too too far to center at “my old age”, but this is why and how iTunes has become so dominant. relationships, artists and a great library.
