Buy.com Launches First iTunes Competitor

Buy.com Launches First iTunes Competitor: "'[Apple CEO] Steve Jobs is a visionary, but he's on the wrong platform,' notes BuyMusic.com founder Scott Blum, referring to the fact that the iTunes Music Store serves less than 1 percent of all computer users, because it requires Mac OS X. BuyMusic.com, meanwhile, reaches almost 98 percent of all computer users, he says. Naturally, BuyMusic.com isn't the first player in this market, but then the iTunes Music Store wasn't first either; MusicNet, MusicNow, pressplay, and Rhapsody have been plying the digital delivery of music for some time now."
