The only place that I have ever downloaded music is from Walmart.com - Always Low Prices! since they offer each song at $.88 which in my opinion is one heck of a deal. I am looking to try I-tunes but I can not find much information on their pricing.
It's iPods, iTunes and iPhones. Apple is into the music and telecommunication market heavily. I have only checked the iTunes software. It is a very good product. I will now check for iTunes stores also.
I have been using iTunes for music downloads. I haven't been downloading much music so for the occasional song that I want to get this works for me right now. But once I get back into downloading more music I think I will check out other options since iTunes is .99 per song.
