    Now that the newness factor has worn off, I still find myself hearing a song on the radio and buying it from Apple Music Service. I just bought 5 songs today. Considering I spent $0 on music in the last 2 years, this is definitely a plus for musicians...

    So my total count is currently 19.

    the correct name is ITMS, for iTunes Music Store. And for me, 37. :)

    I was never a big music buyer either until the ITMS came along. I've purchased 108 tracks, 5 albums, and will continue to purchase music there regularly.

    I don't buy any because I am in Europe, but I do use it to preview music and then buy it from amazon if it is any good. If I do buy from iTMS, I will also download the mp3 of that song off Kazza, so I can play it on any device I want. I have one Mac server in my house that has all the music that my PCs and other Macs access over the network. If I got iTMS music then only the Macs in my house could play the music.

    I still haven't bought any, but I have bought a few CD's in the past few weeks. I guess I'm old school.

    ummmmmmmm

    0.

    $0.00

    1) don't use my mac.

    2) I would only buy the music of the people who need the money. I refuse to give any more money to Brittney Spears - she has enough. I would buy a song by a local artist though, but I am more into mainstream stuff, so then again I probably wouldn't want a local artist's stuff.

    27 so far. Try to not let myself go crazy so I limit it to 3 to 4 a week. It would be easy to have a couple of hundred just disappear from my bank account.

    I've bought about 30 or so total (including one full album). I continue to buy 2-3 per week.

    I've also downloaded about 15 songs via Acquisition over the same time period (none of the songs were available on iTMS). Given a choice, I prefer to buy the songs from iTMS instead of using a file-sharing app.

    I've also bought a couple of actual CD's recently.

    [weeping]

    Aw, man. Am I the only sucker who's dished out over $200 to Apple since iTMS's inception?

    At least my music collection is growing... even if my wallet isn't. This is easily the most I've EVER spent on music. Period.

    I'm deathly afraid of when iTMS actually has a full repertory of artists. I suspect we'll start to see the iTunes Music Store in its true glory once the Windoze version releases.

    Warning to iTMS addicts

    Do NOT hop on iTunes when you're drunk and looking for good music. And keep your inebbriated friends as FAR away from the Mac as possible, too.

    :rolleyes: :D

    scem0, don't mean to preach, but if you're into mainstream maybe you should support it. There are a ton of people you're supporting who are not millionaires, such as all the technical people.

    'ways, I've purchased 58 songs. Mostly just trying to fill gaps in my collection on things that I won't buy the whole album for -- for example, Aretha Franklin, or En Vogue, Seal, or the Gran Turismo Soundtrack...

    And for me, also, it is the most money I've spent on music in years. Such garbage out there, but I guess it's always been that way...I guess before it was a matter of other genres sucking, where now the genres I like have been thoroughly gang-raped.

    Intoxication and iTMS DO NOT MIX. Thankfully for me I am < broke ( :confused: ) so I don't have to worry about it.
