    That's the second best approach I have seen (iTunes being #1 of course). I like it, alot. Especially nice are the free tracks you get when purchasing a card. I'll have to check out what's available artistwise, kinda slim pickens at this point.

    they actually have a damn fine selection of independent artists in comparison to itunes... I think they complement each other nicely.

    I think Apple should strike a deal with AudioLunchbox.com Just like Apple struck a deal with audible.com iTunes could have a separate "Audio Lunchbox" section or an Indie section that would offer exactly the same service as audiolunchbox offers: no DRM, nothing but indie. Apple would get a small cut and the artists would still get the lions share.

    I read that artists get about $0.11 per track sold on iTMS, what are they getting from Audio Lunchbox?
