    Yeah that's a really good plan. Try to get customers with monthly fees and a much higher monthly total for most people. :rolleyes:

    iTunes was the first non-subscription digital music store, and that's partly why it became such a success. I've only started buying digital music recently, because it's quite a big mentality shift. You need to dabble with these things - buy a few songs. If you like the system, an album. Then two. Now how about a movie?

    It's quite a large shift in the way people do things, and has to be taken gradually. iTunes lets you do that. This store doesn't.

    Very well said. My sentiments exactly. I experienced the same thing, and am now a HUGE and LOYAL customer of iTunes.

    Wow, exactly the reason why I still use the iTunes Store (despite its flaws and modest selection of iTunes Plus 256kbps tracks). Apple got it right the first time: no moronic imposition of subscription fees, no idiotic "ad-driven sales" such that you have to consider clicking 20 ads before you can download the song you want, etc).

    iTunes Store is not the cheapest. But it's clearly the leader in terms of convenience and hassle-free.
