Just like Windowzz NT for "Nice Try" Sony strikes out.

Connect's pricing is also fine, at 99 cents a song ($1.99 on longer tracks) and $9.99 an album, and it does allow you to re-download earlier purchases at no extra cost.

But the store's advertised selection of "more than 500,000" songs is missing a concert stage's worth of major artists -- to name a handful, Missy Elliott, Norah Jones, the Replacements, Liz Phair and Los Lobos. Even some of Sony's own artists are largely absent: Connect's Bruce Springsteen collection consists of a measly nine albums, not counting a few re-releases.
