My ISP gave me a 7 day free trial to the legal music download service Rhapsody. It's very good. Unlike iTunes downloading music is free but you pay to burn it to a CD, about 79 cents. From there you then could then import it from a CD-r or RW into iTunes then to iPod. It was really nice not having to pay 99 cents per song, when I don't even know if I will like the song after 30 seconds. A lot of rock and rap songs have just the beat or an intro and no the main song for about 10-30 sec into it. They have about 400,000 songs able to download. I listen to a lot of music just on my computer, so if I can get unlimited downloads (streams) for about $7 a month its worth it IMO. Thats 7 songs on iTunes. In the 7 day free trial I downloaded over 400 songs. Out of the 400 only about 20 are in my 50 top rated in itunes. The interface is also nice and easy to use. The best thing about Rhapsody is their organization of songs. Rather then putting a song in just the section "Rap" For a lot of my songs the section was "East Coast Rap>New York" Then you could search for other artists in the east coast style or New York. The "Users also liked" list word great! I found many new favorite artists this way. They also include a paragraph about the band and artists that are in it and at least 3 "Cool Facts." If you want to be a semi-pirate you could always just hook up your PC audio out to mac audio in and not have to pay to burn the songs to a CD. Overall Rhapsody is a great and easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone that has a PC. I bet I will get flamed because I am not supporting Apple or iTunes or something but don't knock it until you try it and for those of us that have a stereo hooked up to our PC its a great almost free solution.
