Why is it better that other music downloading/buying programs?
I have over 3500 songs on my Mac. Not one has been bought from the iTMS... they have all been ripped from my own CDs.joey4127 said:
I think you're confusing iTunes (the music cataloging app) with the iTunes Music Store (the music download store).joey4127 said:

Besides, 99 cents is excellent value. Name something else that costs a dollar and can give you as much pleasure as a song you like...
They're standard headphone jacks with the in-ear headphones so they'll work just fine with your PB, and any other standard headphone socketRedbull said:I need to buy some new ear headphones - will the iPod in-ear headphones work in my Powerbook socket for listening to tracks on iTunes?
I hear this a lot, but I have to disagree with that. Let's say at a store a CD cost ~$10 + with 10 songs on it. That's $1.00 a song which is pretty much what ITMS is. So it's actually an even deal. Then some people say that the record companies rip us off, they make money regardless of how many CDs they sell, yada yada yada yada. Even if the song/artist isn't worth squat to pay for (if a person thinks someone can't sing), that does NOT excuse you to steal that song. If you don't like a particular artist and aren't willing to pay for it, then don't got off illegally downloading it just because you (not you just people in general) you think its "fair".joey4127 said:
Not sure I'm following the logic there. That breaks down to about $.50 a tune and the convenience of not having to leave the house to get it or pay for shipping - not bad at all. There are definitely instances where an album is more expensive via iTunes that in the store, but generally, an album off iTunes is cheaper than buying it in a store.acedickson said:But when it comes to a complete album, like the afformentioned Hendrix album, where you'd want every song on the album $.99 seems a bit high. Especially when it's $9.99 for all 20 songs on CD. When it comes to buying complete albums that's when I think Apple shoud be more competitive.
Excellent response, and so true. My manager recently bought a 60GB iPod Photo for his 8 year old son and after spending some time using the Windows version of iTunes he's decided he (the father) needs a Mac. I've spent the last few months trying to force him to buy a Mac so I know 1 other person IRL with 1, and all it took was a few minutes with a well designed Apple application. and him to pick at its faults and me saying "Oh that doesn't happen on the Mac version.".sjpetry said:Why use a Mac............same reasons.
