Put Down that Apple: MusicMatch Music Store Gets It Right
Put Down that Apple: MusicMatch Music Store Gets It Right: "On Monday digital media player maker MusicMatch quietly launched a new digital music download service that rivals Apple's iTunes Music Store but runs on Windows. Like Apple's service, MusicMatch Downloads offers users 99 cent song downloads and full albums for $9.99. The service also offers digital rights management features that are virtually identical to those offered by iTunes, making it much easier on consumers than rival Windows services such as BuyMusic.com. But MusicMatch Downloads has some unique advantages over rival services, such as higher-quality downloadable songs than the competition."
