The iTunes store is in trouble. Yesterday Amazon put there MP3 store into Beta. I tried it, I like it, and unless iTunes ups the ante I will be buying at Amazon from now on. So, what’s so different? Well Amazon MP3’s are 256kbps with no DRM and cheaper. That means higher quality sound and they can be played on ANY MP3 player or PC. When you buy from iTunes you are locked into an account that you must log into and into iPods only.

The store itself is clean and easy to navigate just like the rest of Amazon. I purchased two albums from them with great results. One was not in the iTunes store at all and the other was $3.00 cheaper. You can not beat that! Now, lets see how Apple responds 🙂
